* The folk song "Scarboough Fair" in which the narrator replies to a proposal of marriage by agreeing only if a series of impossible tasks are performed, such as obtaining an acre of land that exactly skirts the tideline, and ploughing it with a ram's horn. In effect, a polite way of saying "No chance!"

* In ''TheInbetweeners'', the mechanics at Will's work experience try to send him on one. He sees through it and calls them out on it, which just reinforces their opinion that he's an annoying smart-ass.

** And how did Donut even ''get'' the Blue Flag? Church and Tucker told their own rookie, Caboose, to watch their base's flag so they wouldn't have to talk to him. They justified their orders by claiming that a general might stop by for an inspection, with the vague description that the general's armor would be different from their's. So, when Donut wanders into Blue Base thinking it's the alleged store he was sent to, Caboose happily gives him the flag, thinking that the general had arrived.

* ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'': Bill and Ben convince Timothy that he needs to find a rainbow-colored truck. He travels a long way before realizing he's been had, but Salty helps him get back at the twins - by giving them a smelly, old, garbage-filled truck splattered with multiple colors of paint.

* ''Videogame/SunlessSea'': The Gant Pole is a half-mythical place supposedly in the Unterzee, where old and wounded beasts supposedly go to die, and where, according to the various snipe hunts captains set up for their newest recruits, home to a distressingly large amount of lost pocket watches. As the ''Zubmariner'' expansion reveals, the place exists, and everything said about it is true aside from the part about the pocket watches. Bringing in a port report about it is bound to get you laughed at, though at least they pay well for the laughs.
