* An article in ''TheOnion'' featured a person who tried to make an innuendo about a colleague looking after a co-worker's plants while she was on holiday. It was pointed out that 'I'll ''bet'' you'll "water her plants" while she's away' cannot be an innuendo as no sexual action whatsoever can take place between the two.

Added DiffLines:

* Non-sexual example from ''Bitmap World:'' When Harry comes home from his first day at the new office, he mentions that he had a bad day, "but at least I didn't have to wear a bunny suit." His wife assumed the phrase was some obscure computer jargon, but he was actually referring to one of his coworkers, who was dressed as a bunny.

Added DiffLines:

* Steve Rogers in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' doesn't have much experience with international cuisine, so when he hears notorious playboy Howard Stark invite a woman out for "fondue," Steve assumes he's talking about something a bit racier than melted cheese.

* In ''ItsAVeryMerryMuppetChristmasMovie'', Rachel Bitterman's assistant assumes everything she says is a come on... eventually annoying her into to saying "You know... not everything is an innuendo!" He then assumes that the word "innuendo" is itself an innuendo.

* One of these kicks off ''HanamaruKindergarten''. In the first episode, one of the main characters, a 4-year-old girl, is standing alone along on the side of the street. Another main character, a male kindergarten teacher, comes by on his bike and asks the little girl, "Excuse me, Ojou-chan. What are you doing here?" "Ojou-chan" essentially means "Miss" or "Little lady". Not an unusual way to address a young girl whom one does not know. Anzu, the girl, has a very active imagination, however, and she jumps to the conclusion that he's ''hitting on her''. [[PreMeeting He turns out to be her teacher at kindergarten]] and the misunderstanding persists. HilarityEnsues.

* During Yosuke's Story Mode in ''{{Persona 4 Arena}}'', when he comes across Chie, she immediately requests to eat him. Yosuke spends a few moments trying to figure out if she meant it sexually. She meant it [[ImAHumanitarian literally]]. [[spoiler: Then, when Yosuke brings it up after their battle, Chie thinks it's him who is trying to say something sexual.]]

* Kurt in HorribleBosses is a bit sex-obsessed. At one point he sees a picture of Mrs. Harken and declares "I'd like to bend her over a barrel and show her the fifty states," prompting his friends to ask what he means. The only answer he can provide is "Y'know, it's in that movie." In one of the outtakes, he turns to the camera and announces "Well, it is now."

** Sometimes, the entendres are implied to be about to occur, but then avoided entirely, see ''RidingWithDeath'', Where a spinning number dial gets to 69:

* ''WhoseLineIsItAnyway'' occasionally has this during the game "[[DoubleEntendre If You Know What I Mean]]", [[CaptainObvious where everything is supposed to be a double entendre followed by "if you know what I mean"]], but occasionally one of the others will answer a particularly obscure line with "No, I don't know what that means". It's all RuleOfFunny.
