Humans are pretty adaptable. So much so, they seem to take the most bizarre circumstances in stride after a while. It often leads to pretty odd "fluff" news items.

Seen It a Million Times.

Examples:
  • Megamind. After Megamind takes over Metro City, Roxanne introduces a fluff news item, "Are you ready to be a slave army? What you need to know."
  • The Simpsons. This happens a lot with Kent Brockman, such as this casual line when he thinks alien insects will become the Earth's overlords: "I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves."
