* A deleted scene from ''Film/WeWereSoldiers'' has a group of soldiers chatting about their new [[SergeantRock Sergeant Major]], a mean fellow by the name of [[FluffyTheTerrible Basil Plumley]]. One of them used to be stationed with Plumley, and tells the others a story related to him: [[EnsignNewbie A brand new lieutenant]] orders all of his men to put all of their ribbons and medals on their uniforms, so he can see what kind of men he is leading. One of his [[OldSoldier senior NCOs]] comes out without having done so, and the lieutenant [[TheNeidermeyer chews him out]], without the sergeant [[TheStoic visibly reacting.]] The sergeant goes back to the barracks, and comes out buck naked, save for a pair of boots, his ribbons and medals pinned ''directly to his chest'', and a Medal of Honor. [[note]]''That'' guy worked for Sergeant Major Plumley, and was scared ''shitless'' of him[[/note]]

* An episode of the Scottish sketch show ''Naked Video'' had a ''RadioTimes'' listing that went something like "Today Tony Soper[[note]]Founder of the BBC Natural History Unit[[/note]] will be looking at the many kinds of wildlife and birds that can be found in the South East of England. Unfortunately, he's not on TV. We are. Sorry, Tony."

-->''And then, one Thursday, nearly two thousand years after [[{{Jesus}} one man]] had been nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be to be nice to people for a change, a girl sitting on her own in a cafe in Rickmansworth suddenly realized what it was that had been going wrong all this time, and she finally knew how the world could be made a good and happy place...\\\

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7EdQ4FqbhY The trailer for]] ''Film/PulpFiction'' starts off with sad music and a ponderous announcer talking about how it won the Cannes Film Festival Palme d'Or... before the screen promptly gets riddled with bullets and the real trailer starts.

* In American elementary schools children are taught a fairly safe for work version of history. For example: the pilgrims and Native Americans got along. Then in middle or high school they slowly begin teaching them that no, they did not, and that history was full of bloodshed.

* An early episode of ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' has Kermit introducing the show this way.
-->'''Kermit:''' How would you like to see 4,000 woodpeckers performing an aerial ballet while 87 gorillas and two dozen elephants do the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy? Well, forget it! Because, instead, we've got Joel Grey as a guest star, which, in a way, is like having all the excitement of everything I already mentioned without having to clean up afterwards.

-->'''William''': I think Iíve seen a few movies like that, yeah.
-->'''Randall''': I think I skipped the montage.
