* Some of the manga editions of the original ''KingdomHearts'' included a set of one-shot comic strips at the end of the volume, generally featuring an amusing twist on something that happened in the main story. One of the ones at the end of Volume 3 featured Aerith trying to decode Ansem's [[spoiler:Xehanort]]'s Report. "Ansem the Wise... what were you trying to do...? Pork, onion, carrot, potato, shiitake mushroom... Ansem... You like shiitake mushroom in your curry?!"

* A "Graham and the Colonel" sketch on ''TheDGeneration'' breakfast show (later included on ''The Breakfast Tapes'' album) featured the Colonel reading a list of ingredients for a recipe: "Milk, eggs, bread, dish washing liquid, squegee... Oh wait a minute, this is my shopping list".
* In the episode "The Canal" of ''TheGoonShow'', Henry Crun attempts to read helpful advice to Neddie after he falls in the canal, and gets halfway through a cake recipe before realising he's got hold of a cookbook instead of the Lifesaving Manual. It's typical of the series that the still-drowning Neddie's response to this realisation is to wonder what he should do with the cake batter he's just made.

* Inverted in ''Walt Disney's Comics and Stories'' 630 (1996), story "Scandal on the Epoch Express." DonaldDuck, porter on a train, reads what appears to be a grocery list of all the freight items the train should have picked up, but segues halfway through into the Witches' Chant from ''Theatre/{{Macbeth}}''. (That's the one that goes "Eye of newt and toe of frog, wool of bat and toungue of dog...")

* An episode of ''Series/WelcomeBackKotter'' had Mr. Kotter accused of sexually harassing a student. (Actually, she fainted due to a fad diet she had been on and Mr. Kotter was just trying to help her get up.) The Sweathogs wanted the girl in question to sign a confession stating that Kotter hadn't done anything. Horshach wrote the confession on the back of a grocery list and read that to her at first.
