* {{Music/Jellyfish}}'s VillainSong for [[SuperMarioBrothers Bowser]], "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBAay9nPtOU Ignorance is Bliss]]", starts with Bowser saying "... and then I'll join OPEC!". Notably, this is not part of the actual song, but taken directly from a comic strip included with the original album.

** That one references a real joke (the punchline usually has 'witches' instead), and it's dirty. You can see it on [[HeardAnyGoodJokesLately this very wiki]].

* In TheHanSoloTrilogy of the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse, we see one of these when Han tells Chewbacca a joke, right when Chewie is drinking some foamy beer, so [[SpitTake the laughing Wookiee sends suds flying everywhere]]. When Chewie gets irritated at this, Han points out that's how the joke was told to him, too.

* ''Series/NightCourt'' had, as a RunningGag, this punchline: "Twenty dollars, same as in town!"

This one's originally [[http://www.hipsoda.com/wiki/index.php?title=Twenty_dollars,_same_as_in_town about a nun]].
