** In another episode, Dr. Doofenshmirtz's latest get rich quick scheme is to use paper airplanes to give people paper cuts so he can sell them bandages. The paper is somehow strong enough to cut the thumb on Phineas and Ferb's lemonade-making robot, which shuts down when it gets lemon juice in the wound.

* Creator/TomHolt and Creator/RobertRankin have based their entire careers on this. With Holt, you know the book you're reading is based on the same plot as the ''last'' five books of his you read -- and you don't care; with Rankin... well... the closest description anyone's ever found to his books is ''TheGoonShow'' [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs on crack]], and this is pretty much the ''only'' rule it abides by.

* Why does Bluebottle in ''TheGoonShow'' keep getting deaded by explosions even when he's in the middle of a desert on a different continent to the pile of dynamite he's fleeing, then come BackFromTheDead to complain about being killed? Because it's funny. The same applies to...well...pretty much everything else related to the Goons.

** Bluebottle's resurrections are justified in later series by his inhabiting a separate but overlapping (and equally real) reality to the other characters, in which they are all children playing games, and his frequent and often contrived "deading" is the others not playing fair.

* Larry Elmore used this in his classic ''Snarfquest'' comics that appeared in ''DragonMagazine'', citing that his manner of plotting the episodes was to figure out the ending goal of the characters then throw out the plan and write/draw the ''stupidest'' possible way they could get there.

* Me, the [[SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} Merc with the Mouth]], would have to say that I'm, myself, pretty much the incarnation of this trope. I mean, I never stop talking even when I'm getting beaten to a pulp, and most of the stuff I say goes straight into the CrowningMomentOfFunny section... Also, mention that [[SymbolSwearing percent sign, skull, colon, ampersand, swirly thingy, dollar sign, semicolon]] Squirrel Girl again, and I'll make rabbit leg roti, wrapped in rognonade with cherry and carrot puree out of you! Either that, or curry with rice.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'' takes this trope to physics. For some reason, the characters can light fire, have snow, and running water, while the series takes place ''under water.'' Naturally, this leads to LampshadeHanging:

* In the GeronimoStilton cartoon, Geronimo's cousin Trap is asked to provide a diversion, while the rest of the mains sneak somewhere undetected by pe... other mice. What does Trap do? Pretend on being a space alien (complete with a toy helmet with antennas). Geronimo thinks this is stupid. However, the [[CrowningMomentOfFunny whole city]], even the mayor, fall for it!
