--> '''Store Clerk''': How do they feel?
--> '''Bill Cosby''': I'm glad you asked. Now, right here on this right foot. Right here in the middle of the foot, there's a bone. And the shoe is pressing up this bone. And it is really. it is hurting, man. It is mashing that bone. But, up top here where the boot starts, that's rubbing on my skin, and it's making it raw. Now, on the other side of my foot, where the big toe is, well there's a bone there. And it's mashing that bone. And underneath, where the arch is, there's a blister coming up here. Now, the other foot, my little toe, I don't know what happened., but when I stamped down, my little toe got mixed up, and it's somewhere under my big toe. The other three toes in the middle are ''really'' confused, they're all on top of each other. And there is a cut, I think it's bleeding. I don't know, because this other bone cut the nerve, so everything is numb, but up top here, this is bleeding right away!

* ''ComicStrip/FrankAndErnest'' can, particularly on Sunday, go to great lengths to set up a pun. Or other gag, such as having Frank and Ernest make a series of lame puns about locations, look through the Fourth Wall, and muse that it's hard to believe this has a live audience.

* The ''StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' episode ''[[LowerDeckEpisode In The Cards]]'' consists of Jake and Nog trying to acquire a vintage baseball card from a man named Dr. Geiger through a convoluted ChainOfDeals. One of their tasks is to recover Dr. Bashir's stolen teddy bear, and Jake uses the idiom 'to beard the lion in his den', leading to the following exchange:

* Once upon a time, there was a woman who gave birth to one hundred children. For the sake of simplicity, she named them all One through One Hundred. Late one night, a terrible fire burns the family's house to the ground and the only surviving child is a girl named Ninety. Despite the tragic setback, Ninety grows up happy and healthy, receives a good education, gets a job and eventually settles down with a family of her own. However, money remains an issue, and there are certain luxuries that the family can't afford. One day, when the children are older, they come across a stray dog while playing in the park. The children play with the dog all afternoon, but know that their family can't afford to keep it, so they arrange to go to the park every day to play with the dog and take care of it there. They name the dog "This" so they can speak in code about it while at home ("Did you take care of this?" "Have you seen this?" etc). This goes on for a few years until the dog becomes old and sick and passes away. The children hold a small funeral for it and are the only ones there because they never told anyone else about their dog, This. So [[spoiler:only Ninety's kids will remember This]].

* The RockBand Network is a system for small bands to get their own songs into the official Rock Band DLC store. The program that compiles the song for testing is called Magma "'cuz that's where rock comes from." The developers have stated that yes, that joke is the sole reason for the name.

* The entire first appearance of [[Characters/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Rocket Raccoon]] probably counts. So, Rocket Raccoon (called "Rocky" by his friends) escapes from an asylum (he's a guard/companion animal), to go find the holy artifact [[CargoCult Gideon's Bible]], and also to rescue his girl from his rival. Yes, those are just the lyrics to "[[Music/TheBeatles Rocky Raccoon]]", but with {{uplifted animal}}s. To really hammer the point home, Rocket's pal is [[Creator/PaulMcCartney a walrus]].

** J.D. also spent over a week setting up a joke about [[TheOprahWinfreyShow Oprah]]-themed cereal in ''My Happy Place'', recording a member of staff's Oprah impression and rigging a cereal box (the design and manufacture of which he was presumably also responsible for) so that the recording played when it was opened.

* ''ComicBook/SkyDoll'' had a character named God for two reasons: call God a jerk right at the start of the comic, and then this trope when he dies and they can claim that GodIsDead.
