* In ''{{Runescape}}'', there's one quest where you need to find a brain surgeon to fix a bunch of monks after their brains were swapped out for zombies (long story). After you find the doctor in question, get him to the monks, get the supplies, etc, etc, he finally starts the surgery. Before he starts, he asks your PlayerCharacter to record what he does, for posterity. The scene cuts away to a graphic of a cat playing with a ball of yarn. When the scene comes back...

* On an episode of ''Series/{{Kenny Vs Spenny}}'', Kenny makes a bomb out of urine, mentos and mouthwash. The actual explosion was deemed too graphic to show on Canadian television by the producers and a black screen with text explains this.

* In ''SpaceQuest 3'', if you don't get off the garbage conveyor in time, "NOT A PRETTY SIGHT" covers the disposal unit as Roger is shredded. Rather than relaxing the player, it actually serves to make this way of dying funny.

A Funny Aneurysm Moment is when something funny becomes unfunny. That's something serious becoming hilarious.
** This can create a FunnyAneurysmMoment in Hanako's route. She has finally come out of her shell enough to show you the burn scars that cover the entire right side of her body...only for the game to suddenly cut to a photo of shrimp. ''Grilled'' shrimp.

* In ''Literature/TheAdventuresOfTomSawyer,'' Tom has just successfully [[FencePainting conned]] all his friends into giving him enough tickets to receive a special prize in Sunday School for [[Literature/TheBible Bible]] memorization. However, he didn't count on his surprised teachers proudly asking him to display his Scripture knowledge by answering a few questions. Needless to say, his cover is blown when when he answers the question, "Who were the first two disciples?", with, "''[[YouFailReligiousStudiesForever David and Goliath]]!''" At which point [[MarkTwain the narrator]] interjects: "Let us draw the curtain of charity over the rest of the scene." End of chapter.

* ''Comicbook/SuskeEnWiske'' employs the same flowery curtain when Jethro becomes particularly violent (since Jethro using enemies as melee weapons does show up, one does wonder what's behind this curtain...) ** In one such instance, it is mentioned how Jethro expertly makes use of a technique called "furniture swinging."

Also done with bunnies in ''The New Adventures Of Queen Victoria'' - all of which are homages to Walt Kelly, who had "cute bunny" strips on the ready for newspapers too nervous to run regular strips of his (often controversial and outspoken) ''ComicStrip/{{Pogo}}''. * In a ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' [[http://images.ucomics.com/comics/ga/2005/ga050430.gif strip]], Jon says to Garfield: "If you beg, I'll let you lick my ice cream cone."
