* "Death of a Foy" (can be found [[http://www.9timezones.com/ia/znovel.htm on this page]], ctrl-F the word "foy"), by Creator/IsaacAsimov of all people. The careful and elaborate setup of an intricate setting and alien religious culture were all for the purpose of [[spoiler:a pun based on the first several lines of ''[[https://youtu.be/CvfkdHzl-Zo?t=43s Give My Regards To Broadway'']]]]. For added effect, he even carefully tailored its length for the sci-fi publication he originally sent it to, so the reader had to turn the page right before the punchline hit out of nowhere. Lots of Asimov's short stories are like this. He could fill a book with them -- and did!

* 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:
-->Nog: Lions and Geigers and bears...
-->Jake: Oh my...

* Another visual one was the {{BRIAN BLESSED}}-hosted episode of ''HaveIGotNewsForYou'', where he kept pulling props out from under the desk. One of these was a huge Spartan soldier's helmet which he put on between shots to provide HypocriticalHumor about continuity errors on television.

--->'''Colin:''' Our top story today: noted archaeologist [[TheFlintstones Fred Flintstein]] made an amazing discovery today in Sweden. On a wind-swept fjord he came across some primitive musical instruments plus some minuscule deposits of fossilized stool. When asked what the stool could be, Flintstein replied "A dab'a {{Abba}} doo."
