* ''VideoGame/TotalWarWarhammer'' has, what else, Dwarves. These guys have some strange priorities, some of which just don't make any sense. In one instance, you can gain a Gruge quest against Vampires. What did the Vampires do? They massacared a Dwarvern caravan, and reanimated the corpses to act in a performance of "Southeart Beardcomber and The Ostlander's Wife." The Darves aren't enraged about the murder of a few dozen Dwarves, however. What enraged them was that they would choose THAT particular play as it is considered to be one of the worst plays ever written.

** Another particular Grudge requires you to send a saboteur to punish a neighbouring rival Dwarf clan because they stole a halfling cook whose signature dish was a nutty fig pudding that High King Thorgrim Grudgebearer himself was fond of. You can get this quest while Archaeon and his colossal Chaos host are ravaging the lands of Kislev and the Empire and marching towards Karaz-Ankor itself. Because, as bad as it is that [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the End Times are upon us and half of the Old World is nothing but burning hellscape dotted with black obelisks and arcane portals]], we still simply cannot allow the halfling pudding affront to go unanswered.

* In ''Literature/TheTimTebowCFLChronicles'', the Ottawa REDBLACKS' official branding guidelines insists that the team name must always be written in all-caps--and whenever possible, in ''one thousand point font''. The REDBLACKS follow this guideline even when they're presenting a legal argument to Parliament--so their legal documents wind up thousands of pages long, and mostly illegible. Parliament takes one look at this nonsense, and throws their case out.

** By the way, this is Gail Strickland’s one and only appearance as Sheila Gardner. Liz Williams (Paula Kelly) replaced her as attorney with legal aid for the rest of season one. Ellen Foley as Billie Young then replaced her for all but one episode of season two. Filling the void in the one episode was Markie Post, who then replaced Foley as Christine Sullivan for the rest of the show’s run after leaving her previous show, ''Series/TheFallGuy'', which was then cancelled after its fifth season.

* One thing that is often brought up in fire safety is that you should never waste valuable seconds collecting various items (i.e. things you don't want to lose in the fire), just in case there really are people out there who would actually do that, and end up dying because they took too long to escape.

* In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', towards the end, the sacrifices have been gathered for the BigBad's bid for ultimate power, and the fate of the world is at stake. Said BigBad has just finished his EvilGloating about how anyone who attempts human transmutation is punished for their hubris in cruelly ironic ways. Ed's response isn't to start running ''or'' attempt to fight, at least not yet; it's to ''start yelling'' because one of the people present, [[spoiler:Roy Mustang]], didn't even attempt human transmutation and only ended up in the GateOfTruth because the villains deliberately put him there. He's not even yelling about the morality of putting [[spoiler:Roy]] in that situation; he's yelling because the fact of ''how'' [[spoiler:Roy]] got there ''means the BigBad's conclusion doesn't make any sense'', which while certainly an accurate summation is still pretty far from the biggest problem here.

Mace Tyrell is deeply upset by the fact his eldest son refused to invite him to his wedding. Okay, it showcases his political ineptness, but this is rather sweet.
