* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axe_Murder_Incident#Operation_Paul_Bunyan Operation Paul Bynyan]] consisted in chopping down a tree whose position could have sparked a border conflict between the two Koreas without having North Korean soldiers hack to death the choppers as in the first attempt. The Americans sent sixteen combat engineers equipped with [[ChainsawGood chainsaws]], with a direct escort of sixty men armed with pistols and axe handles, an indirect escort including 64 South Korea special forces soldiers armed to the teeth daring the North Koreans to cross the nearby Freedom Bridge, an American [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M728_Combat_Engineer_Vehicle M728 Combat Engineering Vehicle]] ready to blow it up and an American infantry company with twenty utility helicopters and 7 attack helicopters, and support from U.S. B-52 bombers and F-4 fighters and South Koreans F-5 fighters. Then, [[NoKillLikeOverkill just to make sure]], the aircraft carrier ''Midway'' and her task force had been moved in the area, and the whole South Korean military and the American troops in Korea (plus troops from Okinawa) were ready to intervene. The tree was cut without incidents.

* ''Music/JesusChristSuperstar''. Jesus getting flogged is horrifying but take it out of context and it becomes funny because it's about a man counting to the tune of a heavy guitar riff.

* ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7455421/1/Neon_Knights Neon Knights]]'' has a fantastic example in the second chapter. [[HotBlooded Mari]] [[ChewingTheScenery Illustrious]] [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Makinami]] takes on a [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny fourth-grade math test]]. With PurpleProse and [[ShoutOut Shout-Outs]] to ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'', ''Anime/GaoGaiGar'', ''GurrenLagann'', and TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}. Even the line break separating this scene from the one before it is a massive example of this. And it all ''works''.
--> [[GurrenLagann GIIIIIGAAAAA]]! [[IncrediblyLamePun SCEEEEENNNNNE]]! BREEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAK!

to:

* ''FanFic/PoniesAndDragons'' has this in spades, most explicitly with a game of ''{{TabletopGame/Go}}'' played by two titanic dragons (using huge boulders as game pieces, natch). Their casual game and friendly trash-talk draws an enraptured crowd of smaller dragons, who treat it as an intense battle/standoff.
** The very premise itself. Who knew the cast of a ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic My Little Pony]]'' show playing board games could be so entertaining?
