* ''Film/TheShaggyDog'' [2006] has a scene where Doug's wife Rebecca is trying to point out to him that he's turning into the present-in-body-only form of DisappearedDad. She points out the kids got into an argument and took the dog's side. Doug nods. Then, to test if he's listening, she tells him that a neighbor asked her something and she told the neighbor the family had converted to cannibalism. Doug replies, "OK, great. I'd have said the same thing." In an odd twist, he does not pick up the absurdity, and Rebecca is forced to drop a pile of heavy law books on his desk to get his full attention.

* In "The Taketombo" from ''WesternAnimation/TimothyGoesToSchool'', the Franks are sad and muted at dinner because having broken Yoko's taketombo. When Big Frank tries to get them to guess what they're having for dinner and they don't really respond, he comments that it's "stewed brontosaurus with Brussels sprouts on the side." This is met with a sort of general "that's nice" from both of them.

-->'''Voice''': She's gone.
-->'''Bashir''': Who is this? What have you done?
-->'''Voice''': I have eaten her.
-->'''Bashir''': What?!
-->'''Voice''': I've eaten her! What difference does it make to you? You weren't even listening to her!
