* An episode of ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'' dealt with Procrastionation. Ned and Moze make a bet that Ned won't finish his social studies project on time because he'll procrastinate like he always does. This almost comes true until Ned learns that he can use his procrastination as a way to motivate himself, allowing him to complete his project and get a passing grade. Unfortunately, Moze loses the bet since she put off learning her dutch clog dance due to painfully wooden shoes she had to wear.

When they ''finally'' begin working (usually when they realize they only have about an hour left to finish), they begin working like TheFlash after drinking 12 pots of coffee. In some cases, they finish their project at the last minute, run like madmen to their class (or workplace, or what have you), only to find out that the deadline's been changed, or the project's been canceled, meaning they've done all that work [[ShaggyDogStory for nothing]].

* If you are reading Wiki/TVTropes right now, odds are you're procrastinating. TruthInTelevision if there ever was such a thing. In fact, most [[PotHole Pot Holes]] to RidiculousProcrastinator are not from example pages, or character pages, but from Troper pages. (Bonus points if you are reading this page to procrastinate.)
** Yeah, yeah. So... any advice on getting over it?
*** Put on a classic rock album and make your own HardWorkMontage. U2, Music/JethroTull, and Styx are good options. [[DoubleSubversion And then listen to it while browsing TVTropes]].

* In ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'', [[TheDitz Homestar]] does this by accident in the holiday cartoon "Homestar Presents: Presents". He not only sleeps in on the day he meant to go shopping for [[YouMeanXmas Decemberween]] presents, he then realizes ''it's Decemberween night''. Much shouting of OhCrap ensues, and Homestar ends up [[ConvenienceStoreGiftShopping raiding the bargain bin at Bubs' Concession Stand]].

Strong Bad remarks that for a truly crappy diorama, "No sense in thinking about this one until you're on the bus on the way to school the morning it's due. Then it's time to whip out my old standby-orama: The Whimsical World of School Supplies!"
