*** During the same episode, Marge's line "As long as everyone keeps filming one another, justice will be done." was a joke [[TechnologyMarchesOn back in 1994, before cell phones with built-in cameras became commonplace]].

* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Histeria}}'' episode about WorldWarII, Eleanor Roosevelt who saves the Freedom League from certain death at the hands of the Axis Powers teaches us that the moral lesson we're supposed to learn from WWII is that "sometimes the best man for the job... is a woman." Which, while certainly not the ''main'' lesson to be learned from WWII, is nevertheless worth considering.

** In "seahorse Seashell Party" Stewie talks to the viewers at the end about drugs (following Brain's trippy experience with drugs in the course of the episode) and reminds the viewers that they can learn more about drugs by visiting their local library because, as he puts it "There is probably a guy behind the building selling drugs".

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RH1ekuvSYzE A series of YouTube videos exist]] parodying the Franchise/GIJoe [[PublicServiceAnnouncement PSAs]] by replacing all the dialogue with complete nonsense and adding YouTubePoop-style edits. A couple of the videos managed to retain their original aesops, while others (if they had any at all) ended up with nonsensical ones like "Hey kid. I'm a computer. Stop all the downloading. Help computer."

* In Robert Burns' poem "Tam o' Shanter", Tam gets drunk at a pub and witnesses a gathering of undressed dancing witches on the way home. They spot him and come after him, and he barely manages to escape with his life although one of the witches got close enough to pull the tail off his horse. The ending reiterates the moral: don't get drunk or ogle pretty ladies, because otherwise your horse might lose its tail.

** "Cartman Joins NAMBLA" does the usual "I learned something today" speech, only it's from a NAMBLA member, who says that society just doesn't tolerate their life styles. They are interrupted by Stan and Kyle pointing out that they have ''sex with children,'' and saying that while they believe in free speech, he should go fuck himself.

** Or, after rejecting two fairly ordinary morals that do not apply to the (bizarre) story he just told, Coyote offers [[http://gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1819 this one]]: "Do not be a dead goose in a bush next to a lake." According to TheRant, "a useful moral".

* ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' did it twice: after the duplicator incident, Calvin tried to say what lesson they'd learned, but decided "OK, we didn't learn any big lesson." ("Live and don't learn, that's us," quipped Hobbes.) The "moral" of the encounter with Calvin's 'Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons' was the extremely valid and helpful "Snow Goons are bad news." As Calvin noted: "I like [[FantasticAesop maxims that don't encourage behavior modification]]." Another Spoof Aesop appears at the end of the strip where Calvin gets sent to bed after spending all Sunday getting his chores done, following Hobbes's advice that it would give them more time to goof off:
