-> '''Yahtzee:''' Last chance - I'll just keep tanking the rakes and maybe I'll somehow become really psychotically into being rake-faced just in time to be prepared for the sequel. And ''I'll be blatted in the face with a rake if that isn't kind of what happened!''

Obviously TruthInTelevision for anyone who tried that. In real life, however, it usually results in a nosebleed or, if bad enough, a trip to the emergency room - WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes jokes notwithstanding. And if an actual rake ''fails'' to rise and smack you, it may instead [[AgonyOfTheFeet hurt your foot]] and/or break the rake.

* A humorous aside in the ''Literature/CiaphasCain'' novel ''The Traitor's Hand'' notes a group of monks injuring themselves stepping on discarded gardening tools while fleeing from an unexpectedly-landing shuttlecraft. Seems even in [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} the grim darkness of the 41st millennium]], this joke still happens.
* ''Discworld/EqualRites'' references this, saying that magic has a habit of lying low, like a rake in the grass.
* In ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', part of [[InitiationCeremony the Postman's Walk]] involves navigating an obstacle course where one risks stepping on a rake, a roller-skate, and/or an empty beer bottle with a hood over one's head.

* This happens to Sideshow Bob a lot in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', particularly in the "Cape Feare" story where he [[OverlyLongGag repeatedly stepped on a bunch of rakes in a row]]. Hanging onto the bottom of a car after it went through a bunch of cacti apparently left him too out of it to even notice how they were all there completely littering the ground.
** In the DVD commentary, the creators admit they were [[{{Padding}} filling for time]].
** Once Sideshow Bob actually gets on the boat Bart is on, he's decked by one last rake. Sideshow Bob is so mad by this point that he chucks the rake overboard.
** It becomes a RunningGag or possibly even a BrickJoke in later episodes.
