* DonMcLean, when asked what the meaning of "American Pie" was, said something like, [[MathematiciansAnswer "It means I never have to work again."]] There is ''one'' thing mentioned in the song that's definite: "the day the music died", which refers to the plane crash that killed Richie Valens, Music/BuddyHolly, and The Big Bopper. ''That'', more than anything, is why this song has been picked to death. Well, and presumably [[CaptainObvious "James Dean" is a reference to James Dean]].

* ''Videogame/BadMilk'', a rather rare and surreal game, has a point where there's a sentence that, listened to backwards, says ''The Walrus is Paul''. While most things in the game make little sence, at least they're somewhat connected or are clues to something. It's not the case for this one.

* ''Murder Clown'', a game about a poorly drawn MS Paint clown with a bag collecting children, with quotes about TrueArt by warious famous people serving as loading screens between levels. People who know the author claim it was meanto to be a parody of postmodern.

* The whole point of an {{Animutation}} is to be as nonsensical as possible, even the ones that have a plot. (For example, [[http://www.animutationportal.com/modules/debaser/player.php?id=80 Holy Shit Ninjas!]] has a pretty understandable plot, but is peppered with a lot of nonsense)

** It's safe to say it's not just "I Am the Walrus", but half the songs Music/JohnLennon wrote. His quote proves it: He was so fed up with fans trying to find hidden allusions in their songs that he decided to write a completely nonsensical one -- namely, "I Am the Walrus". Lennon allegedly said, "Let's see the fuckers figure that one out" after finishing it. Which, [[FanDumb in an ironic twist]], [[MisaimedFandom was still searched for "clues"]]. But Lennon had the final word during his post-Beatles career when, in his song "God" he sang, "I was the walrus, but now, I'm John."

* In ''Film/BladeRunner'', there is intentional ambiguity over whether or not Deckard is a replicant, clearly meant to leave the audience thinking... Unusually for this trope, the creators have actually weighed in on the matter, and some versions of the film are less ambiguous. Except... [[FlipFlopOfGod Said input from the creators is contradictory.]] Ridley Scott says he is, Harrison Ford says he isn't, and various special cuts have made it less ambiguous in ''both'' directions.

* AndrewHussie is well known for mercilessly toying with the concept of WordOfGod by [[TrollingCreator trolling factoid-hungry fans]], memorably claiming that the faces of ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'''s trolls are actually collections of specialized genitalia that happen to look like an angry face to the human eye, and that all trolls have two penises, one for love and one for hate. When asked why he does this? "[[ForTheLulz Because it's fun!]]"
