* In Cartoon Network's ''WesternAnimation/WhatACartoonShow'' "Sledgehammer O'Possum: What's Goin' on Back There?!", the toon opens on a picture of a marble-columned chicken coop from a deed that O'Possum purchased. He lowers the deed and the actual property includes a run-down wood shacky chicken coop with holes with weird things going on...

** Similarly, a [[UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS Nintendo]] [[UsefulNotes/WiiU eShop]] card may have $20 on it, but remember, unless you live in a region that lacks sales tax, you now have to pay for tax on your purchases too (so it's fortunate that [[AndNinetyNineCents the prices in the eShop end with or cost 99¢]]). And depending on which state you live in, you'll still have a pocket change amount of money left in your account that you can't use.

* One episode from ''ILoveLucy'' 's Hollywood story arc places the Ricardos and the Mertzes in rural Ohio; after making a pitstop at a rundown roadside diner where the lone proprietor only serves stale cheese sandwiches, they leave. Afterwards, Lucy drives down the road, while Ricky, Fred, and Ethel sleep, finding a billboard, promising good accommodations and wonderful food if you turn left onto the next road - Lucy does so, only to take everyone right back to the same rundown diner, where the proprietor admits he was waiting for them, saying that he put up that billboard himself to make everyone travel in circles. Not surprisingly, his only cabin is bare-bones, the full bed's mattress dips down to the floor, and passing trains shake the entire cabin violently.

*** 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.

** 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]].
