* In ''ComicStrip/CalvinandHobbes'', when Calvin tells Susie about his new club "Get Rid Of Slimy [=GirlS=]," when he hears her respond with "Slimy girls?" he responds with "[[ComicallyMissingThePoint I know that's redundant, but otherwise it doesn't spell anything.]]" Of course, this is only Calvin's interpretation of it, but it's still pretty funny.

* One ''ComicStrip/PearlsBeforeSwine'' strip had Rat write a list of "Top 5 things whose appeal I do not get". (The joke was that #1 on the list was ''Pearls'' itself) "Non-alcoholic beer" was both #3 and #2.

* One ''ComicStrip/PearlsBeforeSwine'' strip had Rat write a list of "Top 5 things I can't stand". (The joke was that #1 on the list was ''Pearls'' itself) "Non-alcoholic beer" was both #3 and #2.

* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'', during an arc when he [[http://www.garfield.com/comics/vault.html?yr=1984&addr=841213 gets lost and meets his mom]] in the Italian restaurant where he was born: "It's all gone! Where's the pasta? The people? The pasta? The excitement? The pasta?"
** From an early Christmas strip: "I love Christmas. The parties and the presents, the caroling, the presents, the food, the presents, the decorations, the presents, the fun and the presents."
** Other strips have Jon repeating what he's [[http://www.garfield.com/comics/vault.html?yr=1993&addr=930127 already]] [[http://www.garfield.com/comics/vault.html?yr=1993&addr=930202 said]].
*** [[http://www.garfield.com/comics/vault.html?yr=1981&addr=810204 So has Garfield.]]
** In ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'', a TopTenList of "Things Garfield hates to find on the dinner table.": 10. [[DoesNotLikeSpam Raisins]] (...) 6.More raisins (...) 3.Lots more raisins 2.[[CuteKitten Nermal]] 1. [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs Nermal with raisins]]
* ''ComicStrip/{{Cathy}}'' does this in spades. Often the sentences or entire speech balloons will be identical except for the operative noun, and possibly an adjective. This leads to what is, for a newspaper comic, [[WallsOfText a lot of words]].
* ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}} once asked Wally if he wanted to join his project, the TTP project. "What does TTP stand for?" "It stands for '''T'''he '''T'''TP '''P'''roject." Wally decided he'd rather be Dilbert's [[TheRival arch nemesis]].
** There's a lot of jokes on how the bureaucratic monstrosity that is Dilbert's company is rife with literal redundant departments of redundancy. [[http://dilbert.com/2011-04-27/ This comic sums it up nicely]].
* One ''ComicStrip/PearlsBeforeSwine'' strip had Rat write a list of "Top 5 things I can't stand". (The joke was that #1 on the list was ''Pearls'' itself) "Non-alcoholic beer" was both #3 and #2.
