* A common occurrence in ''Series/ABitOfFryAndLaurie''. Most notably on a scene that has allegedly been censored of its swear words, were they make up their own obscenities instead, including: "prunk", "fusk", "cloffing", "pimhole" and "pempslider" (which appears to be the foulest of the lot).

* In a brief arc in ''ComicStrip/BloomCounty'', moral guardians were cracking down on the strip for the use of "inappropriate language", citing frequent uses of "the four-letter H-word, the four-letter D-word, and the fourteen-letter S-word". After heavy speculation as to what this latter word is, one of the characters announcing this can only think of "[[InformedObscenity Snugglebunnies]]"? In the next strip, the two remark on how somehow saying "Snugglebunnies" is bad enough to get the strip cut. Their response: "We have one thing to say to that. Snugglebunnies! Snugglebunnies! Snu-" and the strip gets cut mid-word. Interestingly, later in the strip's run, the word started showing up here and there. It's also on UrbanDictionary.

* Six minutes (Eastern Time) into May 31st 2017, UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump, the President of the United States, posted an apparently incomplete tweet ending in the nonsense word "covfefe". By the time Trump deleted the garbled tweet, "covfefe" had [[MemeticMutation exploded as a meme]] and become the subject of mockery and discussion as to what it meant, [[NoPronunciationGuide how the hell you were supposed to pronounce it]], and what caused Trump to tweet it in the first place.
** The word that he meant to write was "coverage".

* An example from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'':
--> '''Joey Mousepad:''' What if management remains intragnisant?
--> '''Donbot:''' From the context, it is clear what you mean.
** [[DontExplainTheJoke This is because]] it sounds similar to "Intransigent", a real word meaning "inflexible" or "uncompromising".
