* ''Troll and I'' starts in 1953, with one character showing another a newspaper headline. The other man assumes he's being shown the news about UsefulNotes/JosefStalin's death, but the actual article of interest is the one about Scandinavian troll sightings.

* A running gag in the first few ''CaptainUnderpants'' books was that a kid would notice whatever bizarre events were befalling Captain Underpants, only that when he tried to point them out to his mother, she'd ask him how she was expected to believe that-while reading something that was nearly as strange, such as a tabloid newspaper with the headline "Bigfoot gives birth to 200 pound UFO baby". The fourth book had the pair appear twice-the second time, the kid decided not to tell his mother about the giant robot fighting a giant man in his underwear.

* Subverted in an episode of ''TheDrewCareyShow'', where Lewis reads an irrelevant newspaper ad and somehow, through a convoluted line of reasoning, works out what Mimi and Mr. Wick are planning from it. He is then asked what's on the other side and dismisses it as "some article about a secretary making millions off a fake sexual harassment suit".

* Occurs a few times in ''HidamariSketch''. For example, the flame on Miyako's stove flares up, and all Miyako notices is that her meat burned, not that her '''hair is on fire'''.

* In the ''BlackBooks'' episode "The Grapes of Wrath", Bernard and Manny drink a valuable bottle of wine that's due to be presented to the Pope, and hastily improvise a substitute with which to refill the bottle in the hope that nobody will notice. At the end of the episode, Bernard picks up a newspaper with a prominent front-page article about the Pope being poisoned by their improvised wine substitute and the arrest of their friend who owned the bottle, and Manny reacts with horror. Bernard, however, was simply pointing out the date as his birthday.
