* PaulAndStorm combine this with OverlyLongGag in their song The Captain's Wife's Lament, in order to set up the song's [[HurricaneOfPuns Hurricane Of]] ''[[HurricaneOfPuns Pun]]'' (singular) ending. In the album version, this is merely a charming interlude, but the live version (which intersperses the song/setup with AudienceParticipation "Arrr"s and pirate jokes) takes it UpToEleven, often stretching the four-stanza introduction out to lengths of ten minutes or more.

* An oft-reblogged Main/tumblr [[http://askmindsetandtinker.tumblr.com/post/41384761837/gandhi-as-you-know-walked-barefoot-most-of-the-time post]]: Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This made him ... A super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.

-->'''GLaDOS''': Management froze me out of the lighting systems after I created a strobe effect to induce seizures in a bus full of Freemasons. It was an...illuminating experiment.\\

* Also, the entirety of ''Music/TomLehrer'''s Music/TomLehrer's "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=47bKTtIwrO4 Irish Ballad]]".Ballad]]", from ''Music/SongsByTomLehrer'', spends six verses lovingly describing the Irish maid's murder spree in order to set up the punchline:
-->When at last the police called by\\
Her little pranks she did not deny\\
To do so, she would have had to lie\\
And lying, she knew, was a sin.

* Theater/AnythingGoes almost entirely ends with one. Ms. Evangeline Harcourt loses her dog during the first half of the first act, and spends the next act-and-a-half looking for it all across the boat. At the end of the show, the Purser brings the dog to her, saying it was found in the swimming pool.

** In one episode, someone accused Jimmy Carr of being "the chairman of the Pedantic Society." Jimmy replied, "[[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne I'm actually ''vice'' chairman, thank you very much."


Added DiffLines:

* Theatre/IntoTheWoods has a lyric that you get a feeling that Creator/StephenSondheim had been dying to make.
-->'''Baker's Wife''': If the end is right, [[spoiler: It justifies the beans!]]

* The {{Animutation}} ''Irrational Exuberance'' has the chorus of the song sang each time by three different antropomorphic fruits that parodies of company logos (Rotten Apple Joe for Apple, Banana Public Inc for Banana Republic, etc) with a flashing sign that reads "FRUIT SELLS" and giving out their Name, company and fun facts. The very last chorus ends with [[spoiler: [[CampGay Richard Simmons]]. With the fun fact "This was an incredibly large setup for such a cheap joke. That's what makes it funny"]]
