** Lionel Hutz' advertising as a lawyer. His business cards say "Works on contingency -- No money down". When confronted with this by Homer and Marge, seeking his legal council, Hutz hastily claims that it is just a typo, "correcting" the card with a red marker to say "Works on contingency'''[+?+]''' -- No'''[+,+]''' money down'''[+!+]'''" At which point Hutz also notices that the bar association logo on the card is no longer valid, so he quickly [[EatTheEvidence tears it off and eats it]].

Added DiffLines:

*** A DVD set will be released on Valentines Day 2017, claiming to be "The Complete Collection" of ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtHead''. The problem? The discs are going to be identical to the three "Creator/MikeJudge Collection" sets, the separately-branded "Volume 4", which contained every episode of the brief 2011 revival, and TheMovie. In total, that only makes for under 70% of the series, losing certain [[BannedEpisode banned episodes]] and segments that Judge himself [[OldShame dislikes]], to the extent that he prevents Creator/{{MTV}} from releasing them.

* Seen on the post cards from the ''WebAnimation/StrongBadEmail'' vacation. Strong Bad claims that there's nothing great about "The Great Mound", remarks that "Fabulous Downtown Pantsburg" isn't as fabulous as it appears on the postcard, and discovers "That Clock (Look at it Go!)" doesn't actually run and is stuck at 2:55. Inverted with the postcard of "Historic Over There", which according to Strong Bad does appear in real-life to be painted entirely in sepia tones, complete with brown sky and pavement.

** In "extra plug", Strong Bad orders a pair of "'Lectric Boots" that are allegedly "solid state" and "whisper quiet". The boots are actually covered in energy-sucking incandescent bulbs which are definitely not "solid state", and the cooling fans produce "an obnoxiously loud hum" that is anything but "whisper quiet".

** This may vary depending on the country, in the US, for example, it appears to be perfectly legal (based on the fact that everyone does it) to show things that aren't actually included in the package as long as you put "serving suggestion" on the label somewhere in small print.

* The beginning of ''VideoGame/LuigisMansion''. The picture shows a nice inviting house complete with the sun in the sky, pleasant scenery and even rainbows. The actual mansion is a menacing looking HauntedHouse complete with tombstones on the lawn and DramaticThunder.
