* A [[TheViewAskewniverse Bluntman and Chronic]] comic featured marijuana-themed hero Bluntman getting distracted only to notice that Chronic has been tied up under a boulder held up by a crane. Derris, the villain, then delivers what amounts to "Give up or your sidekick gets stoned," and a couple police officers watching {{lampshade|Hanging}} this by saying "So that's why he went through the trouble of dragging that huge crane over there!" "Yeah! For that incredibly lame pun!"

* ''TheTwoRonnies'' did these kinds of jokes leading up to news headlines, much like the Colin Mochrie example above (but predating it by decades).

* An Englishman, a Frenchman, a Spaniard and a German are all waiting for a ship. Looking to kill a little time, they troop down to a local vaudeville theater. They arrive just after the show has begun and take their seats in the far back of the theater, just as a juggling act is starting. After a minute, the juggler notices the four of them in the back and calls to them "Can you four see me back there?" The Englishman, Frenchman, Spaniard and German reply "Yes." "Oui." "Sí." "Jä."

* 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 her two 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]].
