* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': When Tyrion agrees to confess his crimes to Lysa and Catelyn, he begins listing pranks he committed [[spoiler: Arya does this in his youth, including something about bringing a jackass and a honeycomb "Dragonstone." She runs into a brothel...group of Lannister soldiers on the way down to King's Landing, and they ask her what she plans to do there. She proudly announces "I'm going to kill the queen," to which the soldiers assume she is joking and laugh. Any audience member familiar with Arya's list, however, will know that this is no joke.]]

* In NormMacdonald's 2017 standup special ''Hitler's Dog, Gossip, and Trickery'', Norm describes a scenario in which a wife confronts her husband about the fact that he's been making eyes at her sister, and her husband responds with a sarcastic confession that grows more and more outlandish.
-->'''Husband:''' Hey, the only reason I married you is to fuck your sister, right?"
-->'''Wife:''' No, I shouldn't have brought it up.
-->'''Husband:''' No! Why wouldn't you bring it up? I mean, you're the victim in this whole thing. I remember at the vows, I kept thinking, "I am going to seduce every member of my wife's family. Regardless of gender."

** In ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}'', the parents who employ Susan as their governess see her leaving the basement with a fire poker, and ask why. Susan answers that their daughter Twyla thought she heard a monster in the basement. They assume that she had gone down to pretend to beat it up for the children's sake, adding that the poker was a nice touch. Susan wasn't pretending.

* On ''Series/''{{Veep}}'', Selina's team holds a meeting, then after dispersing, immediately re-assemble without Tom James so they can discuss him behind his back. Once that meeting disperses, Mike doubles back to make sure they're not having a third meeting to discuss him, but Ben, the last person still there, deadpans that that meeting's not til later. As we find out several episodes later, Selina's team did indeed immediately reconvene after Mike leaves to discuss firing him.

* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'':
** Tuddrussel used this in "Ivan the Untrainable", when Larry asked him about strange events from last few days. "Are you accusing me of smuggling Ivan the Terrible on board the satellite? Cause that's just crazy! Oh, what, do you think I smuggled him under my shirt before we zapped back and then locked him in the storage and fed him on table scraps? I mean, come on!". He did it.
** Later in "Out With The In Crowd", Larry and Tuddrussel try to hide Otto from fellow officers J.T. Laser and Lance 9 Trillion, they nervously laugh him off saying--"Well he's certainly not an orphan we've borrowed from the Twentieth century."

* In ''Literature/TheMachineriesOfEmpire'', [[spoiler:Jedao]] tries to fool the rebels into lowering their shields by having Cheris send a message claiming he wants to join them and hates the Hexarchate as much as they do. She agrees that it's a cunning lie. Well, let's just say only ''part'' of it is.

** Similarly, in ''Literature/TimeEnoughForLove'', Lazarus Long remarks that one of two ways to tell a lie artistically is to tell the truth in such a manner that no one actually believes you.
