* Dr. Hamid Parsani, protagonist of Reza Negarestani's ''{{Cyclonopedia}}'', a text described on the back cover as "At once a horror fiction, a work of speculative theology, a political samizdat and a philosophic grimoire," is perhaps one of our greatest postmodern wordsaladists. For example: "The nemat-space of the ()hole complex reduces the monopolistic holiness of the Creation, the functionality of the ground's economy (which also forms a taxis-trellis pincer to support the Whole), and the hegemony of the Whole. Nemat-space introduces wholeness to Zero without wiping it out. This is the polytics first practiced and exquisitely elaborated by the Persian cult of Kaxuzi..." etc. etc. for 250 pages.

* {{REM}}'s "Life and How to Live it" is doubly this. Not only is the advice rather nonsensical, but it was inspired by a resident of Athens who built two apartments in his house (with him changing apartments as his moods changed) and self-published a rather incoherent and bigoted book of advice.

* The SCPFoundation has a parody of this with [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-7560-j SCP-7560-J]], a rant by a guy who is basically a cross between Francis Dec and Gene Ray.

* ''Film/ApocalypseNow'': the unnamed reporter played by Dennis Hopper is prone to spirited diatribes of gibberish philosophy, caught up in the magnetism of Kurtz's insanity. A lot of this was improvised by the heavily drugged Hopper.

* ''Film/ApocalypseNow'': Brand's speech in ''Film/{{Interstellar}}'' about love being ''"an artifact about a higher dimension we can not percieve"'' and that ''"transcends the unnamed reporter played by Dennis Hopper dimensions of time and space"'' is prone to spirited diatribes of gibberish philosophy, caught up in the magnetism of Kurtz's insanity. A lot of treated as this was improvised by the heavily drugged Hopper.other characters. And many viewers. It makes sense in context of the later parts of movie and the [[UsefulNote/{{Existentialism}} existentialist themes]] that are included in almost all of [[ViewersAreGeniuses Nolan's movies]], but at that moment it seems completely ridiculous.

** Speaking of which much of Hegel's actual philosophy is seen this way, not just as obscure but as pure nonsense. His work has been describe as an "unclear thoughtless flow of words" and "meaningless verbiage". A popular example would be Hegel's attempt to argue that 1830s Prussia was not only the freest society in the world but the freest society that could possibly be imagined.
