--> There is, I believe — at last count — exactly one person in everybody's fantasy Grantville who is elderly and illiterate. Of course, he's also the son of Alvin York and shoots even better than his daddy. "[[http://1632.org/authors_manual/many_halves.html The Many Halves of Grantville]]"

* Played with in ''TabletopGame/{{Munchkin}}''. Despite being built from the ground up to parody various role playing game clichés (and the entire concept of role playing games in general), the "Half-Breed" card only lets you play two Race cards at once, as the name implies. To play three Race cards, you'll need a "1/3-Breed" card. (But then, the rules encourage cheating...)

* In ''Film/AngerManagement'', Chuck claims to be "half Jewish, half Italian, half Mexican." Which is actually possible, because Judaism (even culturally Jewish ''ancestry'' specifically) and Mexican/Italian heritage are not mutually exclusive--one of his parents could easily be a Jewish Mexican or Italian.

Italian.[[note]]Since Jewish heritage follows the mother's bloodline, a person is either culturally Jewish or goy depending on the mother; the "half Jewish" bit could have been thrown in simply because YouHaveToHaveJews and RuleOfFunny.[[/note]]

* A non-comedic example; an old post on ''Website/FundiesSayTheDarndestThings'' had a poster who claimed UsefulNotes/BarackObama was 50% white, 44% Muslim, and 12% black.

* ''USA Today'' published a ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture''[=-=]themed "Hill Valley Edition" on October 22, 2015, which ''Film/BackToTheFuturePartII'' noted as the day on which Doc Brown purchased a ''USA Today'' reporting on the arrest of Marty [=McFly=] Jr. The last story on the front page bears the headline, "Public more gullible than ever", and uses LiesDamnedLiesAndStatistics to detail an experiment from the [[FunWithAcronyms Sam Houston Institute of Technology]] apparently revealing how easily readers might mistake the paper's stories for actual events. The percentages add up to 110%, a gag that the story lampshades...by invoking this trope again.

-->Interestingly, 87% of the readers of this very article were unaware that the total percentages involved added up to more than 100%, demonstrating that basic math skills are continuing to decline. The remaining 22% didn't care.
