* In ''Film/MeanGirls'', Regina George, the [[AlphaBitch Queen Bee]] of [[GirlPosse the Plastics]], is a specific example. She can rattle off several weight loss that are (mostly) illegal and most of which either were expensive before being banned or would be expensive to ship from countries where they're still legal--and yet she doesn't even know enough about health and nutrition to know whether or not something like ''butter'' is a '''carb''' (hint: it's not).

* In ''Film/MeanGirls'', Regina George, the [[AlphaBitch Queen Bee]] of the [[GirlPosse Plastics]], is a specific example. She can rattle off several mostly-illegal weight loss drugs (most of which either were expensive before being banned or would be expensive to ship from countries where they're still legal). Yet, she didn't know enough about health and nutrition to know whether or not butter is a carb (hint: it's not).
** This is most likely a jab at the stereotype of American teenage girls wanting to get thin the fast and ''un''healthy way than through actual ''healthy'' living--[[CaptainObvious such as simply eating healthier foods and exercising more]].

* A Canadian Taco Bell commercial opened with a rap video of a MoneySong with the rapper throwing wads of cash all over the place. It then cuts to an office where the rapper had been watching the video on the computer with his accountant.
-->'''Accountant:''' I probably don't have to ask, but... do you pick the money ''back up'' after you throw it at the camera?\\
'''Rapper:''' ''[chuckling dismissively as if the very idea is ridiculous]'' Naw, man.\\
'''Accountant:''' Well, you might want to try doing that. You'd have a lot more disposable income!

** Mr. Burns subverts this trope once when he's attacked by Homer after Homer is put in charge when Smithers left on vacation (Smithers expected Homer to do such a terrible job that Mr. Burns would be glad to have him back on his return). Things [[GoneHorriblyRight go horribly right]] and Mr. Burns is so terrified of Homer that he's forced to learn to do things on his own resulting in him firing Smithers for not needing help anymore.

Things return and not worrying on losing his job). Smithers was proven true, but Homer goes beyond being bad [[GoneHorriblyRight go horribly right]] and punches Mr. Burns is after reaching his limit.]] Mr. Burns becomes so terrified of Homer that he's he is forced to learn to do things on his own resulting in him himself and actually thanks Homer for this later before firing Smithes as he came back. Things are back to normal when Homer injures Burns again requiring Smithers for not needing help anymore.to take care of him (with Smithers sending Homer a fruit basket as thanks.)



** In contrast, ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' has everyone in the Blake family ''[[WhiteSheep but]]'' Daphne being like this. Her dad once bought a car just to have it sit around their living room as a decoration.

** Interestingly enough, Junior does seem to possess common sense, if namely in StatingTheSimpleSolution regaridng his father's supervillainy. Senior disapproves because it goes against supervillain tradition.

* ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'': While Emil is [[RichesToRags no longer rich in dollars]], the poor in sense part is shown to be alive and well in some of his early scenes. His first hauls his luggage up a bunch of stairs, when the building actually had an elevator. He also turns out to have come to greet his new Finnish crewmates a day early because he aimed for the day their boat would be ''leaving'' from Finland and not the day it would be ''arriving'' in Sweden. Add the contents of his suitcase to this: military grade DemolitionsExpert explosives, that he's not supposed to bring into civilian quarters without a permit. No, he does not have the permit in question.

* In ''IronManArmoredAdventures'', Tony and Gene have a few moments of these. However Justin Hammer takes the cake with his PsychoticManchild personality, often believing anything can get done if he throws enough money at it.

* The Carrington sisters in ''EliteBeatAgents'' don't know how to eat bananas; they're too used to French or Italian food.
* Mitsuru Kirijo, the {{Ojou}} of ''{{Persona 3}}'', is at a loss as to how to function in a fast food restaurant and (in a classic case of [[{{Irony}} situational irony]]) is unable to buy food at a vendor's stand because it doesn't accept credit cards.
