This one often comes about due to a misinterpretation of the instruction "[[AmbiguousSyntax pull the pin]] [[ExactWords and throw]]".

** A common variation is that one of the two, after pulling the pin, attempts to throw the grenade with all his might, only to discover that the grenade is attached to his hand due to chewing gum, ultra strong glue, or whatever sticky substance he had previously held.

A character pulls the pin off a grenade and proceeds to throw ... the pin, and keeps the grenade in hand. Very common in cartoons.

* In the "Bloodsuckers Are Not Sexy" arc of ''FafnirTheDragon'', one of the vampires is an expert with grenades... only he wound up throwing the ''pins'' at [[{{Dracula}} Vlad the Impaler]]. It ends exactly how you'd expect.

* Some poor recruits and trainees end up doing this under stress. Thankfully, most instructors and drill sergeants are ready to save the unfortunate newbie before any accidents happen.
** Unfortunately for the recruits, this involves a Sergeant composed of well over 230 pounds of muscle (Grenade Range Sergeants are selected, it seems, from a pool of body builders) slapping the grenade out of the private's hand (if it's not on the ground yet), picking the private up by the scruff of the neck and his/her belt, and body-slamming the poor sap into the ground on the opposite side of the concrete bunker that protects recruits from short throws. Not pleasant.

* There's a variation in the obscure British sketch show ''TheSteamVideoCompany'', where a soldier pulls the pin on a grenade then opens a can of Coke, throws the can and puts the grenade to his mouth.

* ''{{Bananas}}'' pulls this gag twice in the course of a montage. Creator/WoodyAllen's character is training with the rebels, and he tries throwing a grenade. Predictably, he throws the pin, having just enough time to make an exasperated face before the grenade explodes in his hand. Later, he tries again, and successfully throws the grenade. [[spoiler:[[RuleOfFunny The pin explodes in his hand.]]]]

* ''WhoseLineIsItAnyway'': This [[http://senorgif.memebase.com/2012/01/20/funny-gifs-want-on-your-team/ gif]] sums it nicely.

* In the music video for TwistedSister's "I Wanna Rock", TheNeidermeyer teacher tries to stop the band by throwing a grenade at them, but he ends up throwing the pin, and the grenade gets [[StickyBomb stuck on his hand]], so he jumps into the school swimming pool to try defusing it, but ends up getting blasted upward, hitting his head on the diving board.

* ''AxisPowersHetalia'' does this gag as Germany tries to train Italy to throw grenades. Then later, South Italy comes along and tries to throw a grenade at Germany—but fails because of this mistake. Germany ends the gag by crying out in frustration, "What's with you two?"
