* A joke that's usually told like an urban legend: An airplane employee named John Gay is taking a flight using one of the free tickets he gets from his job. Not liking his assigned seat, he switches with someone else. Unfortunately, the plane is overbooked, so the flight attendant has to go and ask people to give up their seats, starting with holders of free tickets. She asks the man who took Mr. Gay's seat "Are you Gay?" He says "Well, yes, miss, I am." She says, "You'll have to give up your seat." Realizing what happened, the actual John Gay stands up and says "no, no, ''I'm'' Gay." A third man stands up and says "Hell, I'm gay too. They can't throw ''all'' of us off the plane."

* In "Who Is Me?" from ''[[Franchise/WinnieThePooh The Book of Pooh]]'', Pooh receives a note that reads "Dear, Pooh. I miss you. Please come to lunch. Signed, Me." Since Pooh can't read, he ends up having Owl read the note. Owl reads it out loud verbatim, causing Pooh to think at first that it's ''Owl'' that invited him to lunch. After Owl finally gets through to Pooh that he didn't write the note, he spends the remainder of the story chasing the note through the pages of the ''Book of Pooh'', trying to find out who did write it and confusing them, particularly Rabbit. In the end, it turns out that Kessie the bluebird wrote the note and she's forced to admit that, yeah, it would have saved Pooh a lot of trouble if she had actually signed her name.
