** Subverted in [[http://www.actsofgord.com/Wrath/chapter02.php this story]], where The Gord makes a 100% non-functional and incomplete Sony PlayStation and builds a shrine to it with a sign reading "Please don't steal me. You are being watched. -- Management." In the two hour experiment, while a lot of people stopped to look at the shrine to see if it was real or not, the closest anyone came to actually stealing it was checking that no-one was looking, as the store lights were out, picking it up, and then putting it back.

* In the ''{{Zero Punctuation}}'' review for [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/6276-DayZ DayZ]], Yahtzee mentions that on one of his 38 attempts (by the end of the video, anyway), he finds a pistol, rifle, and a ton of spare ammo at the top of a stairwell in an abandoned building. While questioning where the guns came from, as well as questioning the broken window and adjacent dead player (portrayed as a corpse with a bullet wound in their forehead) he is [[EpicFail shot dead by a sniper]] ([[BoomHeadshot in the same spot as the aforementioned corpse]]).

* In the Yellow trailer for ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', [[ActionGirl Yang]] strolls into a BadGuyBar and uses a GroinAttack on Junior, the mob leader who runs the place, to get some information off him. When his goons descend on them, [[UnusualEuphemism she lets his Juniors go]] and then playfully flirts with him, saying she wants to kiss and make up. He goes along with it and leans in, ''with his eyes closed''. Unsurprisingly, [[PunchedAcrossTheRoom she just socks him]].

* ''{{Gearworld}}'', a Livejournal blog of a fictional travelogue, contains two instances of Schmuck Bait. Each instance had been discovered by a previous group of exploring monks, and they had left carved plaques behind to commemorate and warn about the experience.

* ''Website/CollegeHumor'' has a video called the "Retard Test". The patient is given this riddle: the red man lives in the red house, the orange man lives in the orange house, and the blue man lives in the blue house. So who lives in the white house? The answer: The President, but the patient gives "the white man" because of the way the riddle has been phrased.

The doctor tells him "Wrong: [[spoiler:the President]] lives in the White House. You're retarded." Not that it matters, until 2017 the correct answer would also be "a black man lives in the White House."

** Though since none of the badges change the mouse pointer to the pointing hand that indicates a hyperlink or other clickable thing, and none of the regular badges do anything when clicked, users are liable to assume the button is just another quiz award or something and pay it no mind other than to maybe check the mouseover description. Making it perhaps the only BigRedButton ever that people are liable to ''not'' press.

** Gord loves these. He found a GameShark that actually damaged SNES systems(which is [[TonkaTough easier said than done]]). Then he left it out for someone to steal. He then made lots of money repairing said systems.
