* ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'' has the scene where a scientist programs a supercomputer into finding the locations of Wonka's golden tickets. First, the computer refuses to tell for it would be cheating. Then, when the scientist offers to share the grand prize, it retorts with "What would a computer do with a lifetime supply of chocolate?". Cue AssShove threat by the scientist.

* A Finnish TV sketch starring Pertti "Spede" Pasanen revolves around a man having an argument with a talking ATM that's implied to be connected to an OmniscientDatabase of some kind, based on the fact that it's ridiculously aware of his comings and goings, doesn't want to give him large amounts of money because it knows that he'll just waste it on booze and ultimately ends up blackmailing and guilttripping him by letting him know that it's aware of his illegimate son that it's been sending monthly alimony checks to "just out of goodness of my heart". The man finally gets tired of this charade, tells the ATM that it can keep the money, blows raspberries at it and slams its flap closed before leaving and laughing at it.

* Bob in the book of ''TheDresdenFiles'' was never a real person. He's an air spirit of intellect which occupies the skull unless Harry explicitly gives him permission to come out and possess his cat or otherwise travel freely.
* In the {{Xanth}} series, Dor's magical talent is to make inanimate things talk, and sometimes they can be quite snarky.
