[[LampshadeHanging The chapter's epigraph is "For surely laughter masks a nervous soul."]]

* ''Manga/BlackLagoon''. Balalaika's EvilLaugh (possibly [[LaughingMad insane laugh]]) does this for the three-way MexicanStandoff in ''Fujiyama Gangsta Paradise''.

Fortunately Rock does the latter.

* In ''Webcomic/KnightsOfBuenaVista'', Mary mentions she likes GoingFurASwim, but then her boyfriend Bill says that's a private thing between then. [[http://elsaletyoufinish.tumblr.com/post/90881450883/kobv-frozen-0017 His sister Adriana then]] notes that Mary [[PrettyInMink let her borrow most of her furs]], making Adriana think she wore clothes that wore worn when having sex with her brother. After [[BrainBleach Adriana said she was going to be sick]], Mary insisted nothing like that happened; Bill just took pictures while she wore those. After Adriana snaps [[DiggingYourselfDeeper that isn't helping]], Dick just snarks that they should stop whining about their "first world problems", and then jokes that Mary could at least share those pictures. Mary and Adriana some much needed laughter from that.
