** Lampshaded recently when the character Drizz'l uses a joke to "break the ice". Literal ice. Everyone involved is amazed it worked. Drizz'l outright states he hates that it did.

* ''Webcomic/DumbRWBY'' could basically be described as everything from WebAnimation/RWBY used for comedy. And [[BlackComedy yes]], we do mean '''[[CrossesTheLineTwice everything.]]'''

** This being the most frequently referenced instance of the rule, it's interesting to note that, the way Roger Rabbit phrases it, you can never be ''quite'' sure if he isn't just pulling Eddie's chain. ...in the figurative sense.

* A grim example (shared by Comic Books above) comes from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' in the form of the Joker. He only commits crimes if they're funny--unfortunately for everyone in Gotham, he has a really sick sense of humor.
** This is lampshaded in "The Laughing Fish," when the Joker uses an altered version of his Joker venom to mutate every fish in Gotham to resemble him; he then attempts to copyright the fish so he can fund his criminal empire. When Mr. Francis, the bureaucrat who runs the Gotham Patent Office explains that natural resources like fish ''can't'' be copyrighted, the Joker threatens him. Later that evening, Francis wonders aloud why on earth the Clown Prince of Crime is interested in a meager civil servant like him; Batman responds that "in [the Joker's] sick mind, that's the joke."
** In "Mad Love," Harley Quinn devises a plan to kidnap and kill Batman based on one of the Joker's old schemes--put the Caped Crusader in a straitjacket and throw him in a tank full of piranhas. The Joker discarded this plan because [[InsaneTrollLogic piranhas can't smile]]; Harley finds a way around this by hanging Batman upside-down, which will make the fishes' frowns turn to grins from his perspective. When Joker discovers what Harley is up to, he flies into an absolutely terrifying rage and starts ''beating'' her. She protests, explaining how she altered the plan, which prompts the following response as he throws her out a three-story window to the streets below:
-->'''The Joker''': Except you had to EXPLAIN IT TO ME! If you have to ''explain'' a joke, '''''THERE IS NO JOKE!'''''
** In "Joker's Favor," everyman Charlie Collins has a terrible day and cusses out a motorist who cuts him off in traffic; the motorist turns out to be the Joker. Charlie begs for his life, and the Joker agrees to spare him if he promises to do "a little favor" someday. He then holds this over Charlie's head for ''two years'', eventually calls him up to play an extremely inconsequential role in a scheme (Charlie has to hold a door open for Harley), and tries to kill him anyway. The audience is left to assume that the Caliph of Clowns did this because he thought it'd be funny.
