* ''LetsPlay/{{Raocow}}'' sometimes does this with his video editing, as he tries to cut out boring parts for the sake of his audience. However, since he [[TalkativeLoon rambles]] near constantly, when the video resumes it often does so on a NonSequitur. Granted, raocow's rambling often results in [[BreathlessNonSequitur non-sequiturs regardless]].
-->'''raocow''': ''[break in video]''--and I am not a time-ologist, unfortunately.

* {{Mechwarrior}} 4 has a mission where, if you take a certain lancemate, he starts telling you a joke until cut off by another person reminding him radio silence is required for this part of the mission. After the need passes, the guy decides not to finish it. The part he does manage to say sounds like a variation of the classic "a man enters a bar with weird companions he got due to receiving ThreeWishes from a LiteralGenie".
