** Averted in the Episode "High Anxiety", where Hank allowed Bobby to punish him for accidentally using drugs. Bobby decides to punish Hank by not allowing him to mow the lawn for a week. To almost anyone but Hank this would be an Unishment, but it's a genuine punishment to Hank, who even complains to Bobby that the punishment is too harsh.

** Canadian comedian Ryan Belleville as well, doing a bit of SelfDeprecation when he claims Canadians are stupid. Why? Because they descended from the British. And why are the British stupid? Because they came to Canada and decided "Hey, let's live here in this lifeless frozen wasteland while sending our criminals to Australia!"

* ''Literature/TheConquerorsTrilogy'': The Zhirrzh Thrr-gilag was punished by the Overclan Prime by being stripped of both his family and clan names. It seemed a punishment until the Overclan Prime explained that Gilag was to start his own clan whose purpose would be to deal with other species, in effect raising the new family to a status almost equal to the Overclan themselves. There's a reason Gilag's main political enemy was absolutely furious.....

* In the third season of ''{{Series/Lexx}}'' at one point Kai is malfunctioning due to falling from the top of one of the cities of Fire. He's later captured by the authorities of another city who put him through what will apparently become an extremely long and bureaucratic trial. He then learns that the maximum penalty of the city is to be thrown off the top...which is exactly what Kai needs to repair himself. After unsuccessfully asking them nicely to receive that punishment, they oblige when he uses his grappling hook to put the judge's neck in a choke hold.
* In the ''Series/{{Blackadder}} Goes Forth'' episode "Private Plane", Blackadder and Baldrick are captured by the Germans and the RedBaron shows up to tell them they will suffer "a fate worse than a FateWorseThanDeath"... being sent to Germany to teach young girls Home Economics. Naturally, Blackadder is thrilled with the thought of being sent away from the trenches and the war. Unfortunately, Lord Flasheart arrives to [[UnwantedRescue "rescue" him]]...

* On ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'', Dad decides to punish Dexter and Dee Dee by sending them to ''each other's'' rooms. While it's sheer torture for Dexter, it's the best day ever for Dee Dee, because she gets free rein of the secret lab in Dex's room...or so Dexter thinks. While he's driven insane by paranoia and tears ''her'' room apart, she spends most of the time napping. Dexter ends up having to switch living quarters with the dog as punishment. The dog, you guessed it, completely trashes the lab when Dexter doesn't even suspect it.

* The 1993-94 New York Rangers had, amongst their roster, hotshot winger Alexei Kovalev. One game in February saw him stay out on the ice longer than he was supposed to - a hallmark ItsAllAboutMe superstar move - so strict disciplinarian coach Mike Keenan forbade him from returning to the bench for the next shift...then the next shift...then the next shift...all the way to the end of the period.[[note]]Individual ice time wasn't kept back then, so depending on sources the exact amount of time Kovalev stayed on the ice was somewhere between 5 to 10 minutes - save for goalies, shifts rarely last longer than one minute lest the player collapse in fatigue and cramps[[/note]]. Apparently, Kovalev concluded exactly the opposite of what Keenan intended and thought that he was being rewarded for good play - and at any rate, he did score a goal in that super-long shift.

* Drug lord Pablo Escobar arranged to serve his prison sentence in [[LuxuryPrisonSuite a prison he was allowed to design himself and staff with his own guards]]. Since he was able to run his criminal enterprise from in there and it actually served to protect him from assassins, he probably didn't mind too much. Eventually the authorities declared he had to go to a regular facility after he brought some people into his prison to be killed, and Escobar became a fugitive by just walking out the back door.

* Done deliberately in ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome''. Admiral Kirk had stolen the USS Enterprise for an unauthorized mission, and ended up using it to save Earth from total destruction. The Federation Council notes that he has to be punished for his actions, so they winkingly "demote" him to Captain and give him command of a new ship, knowing full well that's the best way to reward him.

* In certain countries, homeless people will often commit small crimes every now and then (especially in winter) to be put into a police cell for the night where it's warm and dry. In a similar vein, some homeless people injure themselves badly on purpose to end up in a hospital for the night.
