* ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' once did a reading on the Aesop of the Ant and the Grasshopper. Only in this version, [[spoiler:the grasshopper drove his sports car to Florida when winter fell, and the ant got stepped on]]. The reader, [[TheComicallySerious Sam the Eagle]], [[FlatWhat responds accordingly]] once he realizes what he's read.

* Crystal from ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' gives one of these to Haley in ''Don't Split the Party'':
-->'''Crystal:''' It's like the old joke goes: I don't have to outrun the bear, I just have to outrun the early bird that catches the tiger by the tail.

* A DummiedOut line from Cave Johnson in ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'' has Cave bring up the story of "The Frog and the Scorpion" - but he's gotten it mixed up with the saying "You say jump, I say how high", and he's inverted it to "When I say ‘jump’ I don’t want to hear ‘how high?’ That means you’re not jumping!"

** When Stan makes an offhanded reference to ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'', Roger angrily responds with a story:
-->'''Roger''': How dare you quote Ghostbusters to me! I wrote a movie called "Rump Busters" and threw it at a guy on the bus who looked like [[Creator/HaroldRamis Harold Ramis]]. Two weeks later, ''Ghostbusters'' came out. Coincidence? Absolutely!

-->'''Roger''': Remember when Rudy from ''TheCosbyShow'' got old and stopped being cute? I brought them Raven-Symone! Saw her on a Philadephia playground and knew she was a star, snatched her right up! Six months later, her parents saw her on TV and realized she was still alive... did some time for that. So, you ask, am I sure about this? I dunno.
