Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'', Lance falls into this sometimes. A good example from the first episode:
-->'''Lance:''' ''(referring to Kieth's motorcycle)'' Can't this thing go any faster?
-->'''Kieth:''' [[DeadpanSnarker We could toss some non-essential weight.]]
-->'''Lance:''' Oh, right! {{Beat}} ...Okay, that was an insult. I get it.
** And later in the first season:
--->'''Lance:''' Hey, does Allura ever talk about me when I'm out of the room?
--->'''Hunk:''' Oh, yeah, all the time.
--->'''Lance:''' ''(excitedly)'' Really?

* Due to lacking an ability to demonstrate tone, it's a poor idea to try to be sarcastic on the Internet. There are stories of people getting banned from several online communities for sarcastically stating something that's against the Terms of Use, the most famous incidents involving "I am twelve and what is this?" when you need to be 13 or over to make an account. This was the original reason PoesLaw was formulated, and a frequent source of examples.

* [[BoisterousBruiser Denmark]] of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' never seems to realize when [[DeadpanSnarker Norway]] insults or mocks him, which annoys Norway. Though as he seems to [[SelectiveObliviousness intentionally ignore aggressive words and actions]], he [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation might just be doing it on purpose]].

* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'': Cosmo Kramer asks Jerry for unreasonable favors which he, as a comedian, replies sarcastically to. For example, when Roger's Chicken makes Kramer's apartment unlivable, Kramer asks Jerry to switch apartments with him:

* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'': Cosmo Kramer sometimes asks Jerry for unreasonable favors to which he, Jerry, as a comedian, replies sarcastically to. Kramer never manages to detect it. For example, when Kenny Roger's Chicken [[AbsurdlyBrightLight makes Kramer's apartment unlivable, uninhabitable]], Kramer asks Jerry to switch apartments with him:



'''Kramer''': Jerry, these are load-bearing walls, they're not gonna come down!

Added DiffLines:

* Wanda from ''Series/CornerGas'' has the ''opposite'' problem in the episode "Dog River Dave". Because she's sarcastic almost all the time, other characters keep assuming her sincere comments are just more sarcasm.

* WesternAnimation/{{Doug}} would occasionally fall into this, usually with his DeadpanSnarker of an older sister. There was even an entire episode where he was worried when Patti invited him over for a dinner party and said they were having his favorite: liver and onions. He actually hated liver and onions and even made a speech in front of the class about how much he hated them. It never dawned on Doug that Patti was only joking until she flat out told him at the end of the episode.
