* ''Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs'' (1966). In an obvious parody of ''Film/DrStrangelove'', the two {{Idiot Hero}}es Franco and Ciccio successfully defuse the 'superbomb' the title villain intends to drop on the Soviet Union, but the bomb bay doors open accidentally and they're dropped onto Siberia, riding it like a horse. [[ComicallyInvincibleHero They survive.]]

* In the movie ''Film/{{Armageddon}}'', when they're trying to lower the bomb into the core of the asteroid, Steve "Rockhound" Buscemi duplicates this scene, and everyone yells at him. Although he claims that he was actually getting the idea from ''TheLoneRanger''.

* ''{{Sealab 2021}}'': In "Red Dawn", when Quinn learns Debbie slept with the President, he bombs Washington, DC in a fit of jealousy, shouting "Nobody shucks my corn but meeeeeee!" as he rides the bomb. (Inexplicably enough, however, the cityscape he's dropping into is clearly [[CaliforniaDoubling San Diego, CA]].)

* The US tried to build one that was designed to be flown by a trained ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Pigeon pigeon]]''; the idea was that the pigeon would be trained to peck at the image of potential targets, and then the target would be projected onto a lens in front of the pigeon; the pigeon would peck it, and thus through a system of electronic controls attached to the unfortunate bird, the missile would self-correct. Despite some actual successes, the US military never picked it up because electronic guidance was coming in anyway, training the pigeons to recognize enough enemy targets took too much time, and they considered the whole thing absurd.

The project did lead to the development of touch-screen technology, however.

* ''ExterminatusNow'' at one point has a crude chalkboard-style stick-figure sketch of what [[KillSat Exterminatus]] actually does (complete with a sketch of [[Creator/HPLovecraft Cthulhu]] labelled "[[CaptainObvious A Bad Thing]]"). The warhead plummeting from space onto the planet? It has a stick-figure cowboy wavin' his hat.
