** This joke comes up quite a bit. In one episode, Little Sneezer is playing a tuba and eating smelly cheese in the basement, which carries through the ventilation system, causing the toonsters to assume someone is farting repeatedly. Babs asks, "Who wrote this?"

* ''Film/StargateContinuum'' has a line that's actually not PlayedForLaughs. As Daniel, Sam, and Mitchel are trying to explain to the incredulous [[AlternateUniverse alternate Air Force]] about the Stargate Program they get increasingly frustrated, causing Daniel to yell "Seriously, who would make this shit up?!"

* ''FrankieHowerd'' practically made his career out of breaking the fourth wall, and many of his quips were about the bad writing, or that he knew that joke wouldn't work, or that the writers gave all the best lines to others.

** Wrestling/ShawnMichaels would later ask this in 2007 after a particularly confusing DX promo. Trips retorted with something along the lines of "I don't know, they're all on strike!"
*** The WWE didn't actually have this excuse, since WWE programming is non-union since [[TheScrappy Vince [=McMahon=] is a controlling]] [[CurseCutShort bast-- uh, I mean,]] the existing trade unions in America are not set up to handle Sports Entertainment or its writing.
