* ShowWithinAShow example: "Pyramus and Thisbe" in ''AMidsummerNightsDream''. It's so badly written and wretchedly performed that it's hilarious. The Duke and his guests order it performed just for the SnarkBait.

** Nowadays, Wrestling/LuchaUnderground ''[[InvokedTrope deliberately]]'' goes for a similar vibe to Wrestling Society X, and is somewhere between this and SoCoolItsAwesome depending on who you ask.

* In 2006, to coincide with the new film, Jakks Pacific put out a line of ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' action figures, with characters from the entire series... and several extremely bizarre creative decisions throughout, to the point where it just becomes laughably absurd. Even though the figures were made at a six-inch scale, almost all of them used real fabric clothes, and it's impossible to make clothing thin enough to look good at such a small scale, so they invariably either made the figures look bloated or didn't line up, particularly [[http://www.figurerealm.com/actionfigure.php?universeid=604&FID=13083&figure=adrian Adrian]]. What ''really'' sends this into surreal hilarity, though, was the idea to release ''the slab of meat Rocky trains on'' as [[http://www.figurerealm.com/actionfigure.php?universeid=604&FID=13086&figure=meat its own action figure sold separately from anything else.]]

* The Coal Miner's Glove (a leather glove, covered in metal studs) was a supposed to be a ShoutOut to an even worse match from before the Wrestling/MondayNightWars era. Going into the ''WCW Halloween Havoc 92'' [=PPV=], held on October 25, Wrestling/{{Sting}} was feuding with [[Wrestling/JakeRoberts Jake "The Snake" Roberts]], who devised that they "[[WheelOfDecisions Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal]]" a match where various gimmick matches were on a giant wheel, and whatever it landed on would be the match they would face off in. However, the wheel itself wasn't gimmicked, and it landed on the worst possible option -- a "Coal Miner's Glove" match. Whoever retrieved the glove from the pole first, would be allowed to "use" it on his opponent. The match wasn't much and Jake, due more to personal issues than bad booking decisions, was gone right after.

* WCW's San Francisco 49ers Match between Wrestling/JeffJarrett and Wrestling/BookerT is one of the most hilariously stupid matches of all time. It's a glorified pole match (something Wrestling/VinceRusso [[AuthorAppeal was fond of]]) with 4 wooden boxes at the end of each pole; 1 contains the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wcw/wcw-h.html WCW World Heavyweight Championship]] belt and the other 3 contain "weapons:" a blow up doll, a framed picture of Wrestling/ScottHall, and a coal miner's glove. It began with an old lady trying to smack Jarrett with a shirt BookerT gave her and ended with Beetlejuice (not ''that'' Film/{{Beetlejuice}}, the Wack Packer from ''Radio/TheHowardSternShow'') giving Jarrett 5 [[GroinAttack "high blows"]]. The title fell out of the box, and Booker T became the WCW Champion. When the belt fell out, David Penzer had to hand it to Booker. Thankfully, Russo wasn't sharp enough to change the finish and award the title to Penzer instead.
* Wrestling/{{Wrestlicious}} which is exactly what it sounds - pink ring ropes, outlandish characters, camp factor UpToEleven, a commentator that sounds like Creator/StanLee and a HurricaneOfPuns during every match. Yet also features the top women wrestlers in the country as characters. It's safe to call it the ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' of indie wrestling.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvACWh8k7Io TNA: Final Deletion.]] This unfathomably inane and hilarious mini-movie/bout includes such highlights as Jeff Hardy defending his house from his brother's army of attack drones with his acoustic guitar, Matt Hardy cackling madly as he drives a lawnmower over Jeff's lawn art, and some of the most stilted and wooden acting this side of Syfy. The best part? [[UpToEleven We haven't even gotten to the actual bout yet,]] which features Jeff missing Matt from a dive off of a tree onto a cropped-up ladder (which Jeff treated like it hit and attempted a pinfall), Jeff throwing Matt into a backyard screen, the two boys shooting each other with roman candles and attempting to drown each other in the lake, accompanied by jump cut edits and movie trailer music the whole way through. It's essentially the ''{{Sharknado}}'' of wrestling mini-movies.

* Website/YouTube's captioning device (which is originally used for deaf people) qualifies when it has such word salad gems as "[[LegendsOfTheHiddenTemple I have a six-year-old and that may be headed for trouble]]", "[[Creator/AbbottAndCostello Fuck my sex life]]", "[[Anime/YuGiOh I designed this virtual stadium myself in prison]]", "[[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic Let me show you who's going to lose a lot of pot]]", "[[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd It's like you've given up on election day]]", and "[[Anime/SonicX My brain, you know it going to die]]" being around.

* Similarly, Eric "The Eel" Moussambani, a swimmer from Equatorial Guinea, qualified for the 2000 Summer Olympics through a wildcard draw designed to encourage developing countries lacking expensive training facilities to compete. He had never even seen a 50 metre pool before competing, having only taken up swimming eight months beforehand and having previously having trained in a 20 metre pool. In his qualifying heat, his two opponents were disqualified for jumping the gun, leaving Moussambani to compete on his own. He [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2teSx5xiRk&feature=related set the national record for Equatorial Guinea]] despite taking over a minute over the world record.
** Thing is, the swimming community considers people like Eric real heros, and not in a condescending way or in the way this trope calls them - his time WASN'T a failure. His time still is faster than could be done by well over 90% of the world's population, and it takes an enormous amount of work to do something like that from a place with NO support whatsoever. Unlike other "farcical" competitors, Eric and those like him in the past 4 Olympics don't qualify for this meme, because just competing like that is closer to MundaneMadeAwesome ; you'll notice the audience in the stands are cheering their hearts out, and it's not fake. More to the point: the coaches of the Men's USA and Australian teams lodged a formal complaint against the Australian news commentators shown (who were rebroadcast here in the USA), calling their commentary, quote "undignified, crass, mean-spirited, and unprofessional" unquote. In other words, DudeNotFunny.

* In 2009, a privately-commissioned statue of Creator/LucilleBall was erected in her home town of Celoron, New York. The statue, which was created by local artist and depicts Ball as her famous character from ''Series/ILoveLucy'', quickly became notorious [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/sites/default/files/2015/04/lucille_ball_statue_a_l.jpg when local residents noticed it looked more like Frankenstein's monster than the famous comedian.]] Dubbed "Scary Lucy", the residents petitioned to have it taken down, but it became an internet sensation soon after. In 2016, a new statue by a different artist was erected in its place, this one looking much more like Lucy and members of the human race in general.
This list shows the last 10 events of 209. Show all.
