** [[http://www.garfield.com/comics/vault.html?yr=1997&addr=970524 In this one]], Garfield didn't eat "one of those birds that looks kind of like a sparrow, but isn't". He forgot what they're called.

* ''ComicStrip/{{Dilbert}}'' has used this one: (paraphrasing):
-->'''P.H.B.:''' There is no truth to the rumor that we are moving jobs to the South Pole, where highly skilled Eskimos will work for 68% less than you do.\\
'''Dilbert:''' That's good, because there aren't any Eskimos at the South Pole.\\
'''P.H.B.:''' ''(panicked look)'' Excuse me, I have to make a phone call.
** In another strip...
--->'''P.H.B.:''' These rumors are ridiculous. We're ''not'' considering lobotomies -- certainly not at the prices we were quoted.
** Then there was Dilbert's indignant protestation to his girlfriend: "I do not love that computer more than I love you!" Followed by his silent prayer: "''Please don't ask about the laptop...''"
* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' has a Sunday strip where Garfield claims that Odie is going to lie about Garfield painting him green. However, he actually ''mentions'' painting Odie green, as well as what type of brush he used, in his denial.
* Happened in ''ComicStrip/{{Doonesbury}}'' with a fictional politician. A reporter had just begun a question when he shouted, "No! I don't even know the woman!" His advisor found this a singularly unpromising start.
* From a Christmas strip of ''ComicStrip/TheFamilyCircus'':
-->'''Jeffy''': You know those packages hidden in your closet, Mommy? We didn't find them.
* There's a variation in ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'', when Calvin tells his mother aliens have landed in the backyard and demand to talk to her.
