* In the Franchise/SherlockHolmes[=/=]Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures crossover novel ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoNewAdventuresAllConsumingFire All-Consuming Fire]]'', the Doctor leaves a card with Mrs. Hudson that simply reads "The Doctor - Travelling". Holmes deduces firstly that the card was printed especially for the purpose (because it hasn't the imprint of another card on the back, and was clearly printed recently), and secondly that he was ''meant'' to make the first deduction (because the card is deliberately uninformative, left just for the sake of leaving a card).

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MiraculousLadybug'' fanfic ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/12651228 Marinette's Halloween Group]]'' Lila combines this trope with AndImTheQueenOfSheba: apparently her usual delivery is so smooth that whoever she's talking to takes it at face value, and solved the problem this way. [[NiceGirl Rose]] came up with the idea, much to everyone's surprise.

* [[UsefulNotes/TwoWayRadio Ham radio operators]] have something called QSL Cards. These cards contain, at a minimum, the operator's callsign and some basic information about their radio station, such as the location they operate from. When two hams contact each other, it is traditional for them to trade cards (usually by mail, although in the information age, electronic versions are common) with details of their contact. At a minimum, this information is expected to include the date and time they made contact, the frequency they contacted each other on, and their signal report (how loud and how clear they heard the other person). These cards can be used as proof for various achievements (such as contacting a radio operator on every continent), or just to collect. It's also pretty common for each ham to make their card as unique as possible, containing photos of their operating location, funny cartoons, or other assorted things.
** Naturally, some hams also have regular business cards with the same information for face-to-face meetings. These are called "Eyeball QSL Cards." If you're curious, "QSL" is a ham radio shorthand meaning a verified two-way contact.
