* In one ''Webcomic/BitmapWorld'' comic, Ada tries to cheer up her father by telling him this joke: "Why was five afraid of six? Because six seven eight!" He laughs and tells her it did cheer him up. She later tells her brother that she deliberately messed up the joke because he wouldn't have laughed at the "correct" version.

* A famous case is ''Disney/TheLionKing'', where this is the main appeal of Timon's character. His jokes are so lame you can't help but chuckle- this was intentional of course. Hakuna Matata has this:

* WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}} has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkpKaFOgyoc Let's Play IMDB]]: slowbeef and Diabeetus mock a LetsPlay of ''VideoGame/Apocalypse'' for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation, a mind-numbingly generic game apart from the fact that the protagonist is modeled after and voiced by Creator/BruceWillis, which prompt them to make a HurricaneOfPuns involving the titles of everything Willis has ever worked on. And once they run of those, they make puns with random film and television titles ''[[OverlyLongGag for the rest of the over-an-hour-long video]]''. At one point they briefly pause and wonder who in their right mind is still watching.

** Having a character with the last name "Wharmpess" (Pronounced literally "warm piss" but with the emphasis on "warm") isn't funny. Giving him a dream of starting his own brewery named after him is not funny. The characters drinking his product and declaring it delicious is not funny. Repeating his last name as the name of the beer several times during the episode, and never once having the characters notice that they are drinking and enjoying a beer called "Warm Piss" is ''hilarious''.
