* 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]].

* An episode of ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'' delt 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.

* 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]].

** Discussed in the WebAnimation/StrongBadEmail "diorama". 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!"

** Gregorius' law was suspended by Adrian V due the need for closing loopholes and he died before he could do so, and his successor outright revoked it due the opposition of the cardinals. Then, at the death of Nicholas IV, it took the cardinals ''two years'' before they settled on the guy who was screaming at them the most for the procrastination, and the new pope Celestine V (who had been a collaborator of Gregorius) promptly reinstated the Conclave, with his successor Boniface VIII (another friend of Gregorius) made sure it couldn't abolished.
