* In Episode 75 of WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd:
-->'''Kyle:''' C'mon, get 'em! He's the one that broke the couch!
-->'''James:''' Well technically, it was a futon...
* In the ''WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh'' episode when they get to the part of ''Film/TromeoAndJuliet'' where it's revealed [[spoiler: the title characters are brother and sister]].
-->'''WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob:''' This is so messed up!
-->'''Oancitizen:''' Yeah. They're clearly quoting ''Theatre/AsYouLikeIt'' in this ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'' adaptation.
* How does ''{{WebVideo/Hadriex}}'' react when told he should shave? [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2zoHvAhv3A "You're right, my hand is getting awfully hairy!"]]
* In ''WebVideo/BradJonesDemoReel'', Braddie takes a few minutes to realize his ''E.T.'' costume is actually a pattern, not a completed costume.
* In a [[http://www.comicbooktidbits.com/ Comic Book Tid Bits]] article covering an instance of [[http://www.comicbooktidbits.com/CENSORING%20SUPERMAN_files/image006.jpg overt censorship]] in ''[[Franchise/TheDCU World's Finest Comics]]'' #189, the author writes the following about it (though he does get serious in the paragraph after):
--> "The lights went out in the hospital momentarily and some silly graffiti artist spray painted some weird, glow in the dark letters! It's so obvious!"
* The ''{{Website/Cracked}}'' article on [[http://www.cracked.com/article_17278_6-incredible-real-world-supervillain-lairs.html Incredible Real-World Supervillain Lairs]] has a deliberate Comically Missing The Point under Number 2:
-->Well, a Ledher associate describes how he would be picked up at the airstrip in a Land Rover driven by naked women--which is so awesome because Land Rovers are quality vehicles.
* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'':
** In the Pre-TFS version of ''The World's Strongest'':
--> ''Piccolo, BrainwashedAndCrazy, is about to attack Goku. Not realizing, Gohan runs up to him.''
--> '''Gohan:''' Mr. Piccolo, what is he talking about- ''gets pimpslapped away''
--> '''Piccolo:''' Shut up, Gohan! Mommy and Daddy are killing each other.
--> '''Gohan:''' ''But Daddy isn't drinking!''
** On episode 11, when Korin explains who Mr. Popo is.
-->'''Korin''': That's Mr. Popo. He lives up on the lookout with Kami.
-->'''Roshi''': ...did that cat just talk?
** From episode 21, when Goku repeatedly punches Jeice in the face.
-->'''Jeice''': BURTER! SUPPORT!\\
'''Burter''': Well, you've got very nice hair, you're a beautiful shade of red...and honestly, you're the only guy on this team I can count on.\\
'''Jeice''': ''I MEANT PUNCH 'IM, YA DAFT BASTARD''!...oh, but thanks, y'know, that really cheered me (*punch*) GOD, I THINK HE BROKE SOMETHING THAT TIME!
** In ''Revenge of Cooler Abridged'', when Piccolo tries to figure out which tropes fit which of Cooler's goons.
-->'''Piccolo''': Okay, I think I got this one: [[{{Bishounen}} pretty one]], [[DumbMuscle stupid one]], [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway one with weird powers]].\\
'''[[DumbMuscle Doore]]''': Oi, I appreciate that, but I'm more "handsome" than "pretty"!\\
'''[[{{Bishounen}} Sauze]]''': My powers are not weird!\\
'''[[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway Neiz]]''': [[TheUnintelligible ROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAR!!!]]\\
'''Piccolo''': ...okay, I take it back: you're all stupid.
* ''WebAnimation/{{Dreamscape}}'': Done by ''[[EmotionlessGirl Keela]]'' of all people in "Tale of the Unworld", Anjren fires an EnergyBall at Vampire Genisis, only for him to turn into SuperSmoke and the attack to crash into the wall of the coliseum behind him. Dylan and Anjren react with shock at Vampire Genisis' transformation while Keela just makes a remark about how sturdy the coliseum is.
* Duck does this in the episode 'Beach Brawl' of ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'' after seeing Fire Guy get captured by Cell.
-->''Duck'': Holy shitoki mushrooms!...That was awesome!
* WebVideo/EpicMealTime has of late featured one fellow who digs into their crazy preparations politely with a knife and fork. MusclesGlasses has a tendency to give him reproachful looks.
** The ''comments'' on some videos fall into this. The gang's "recipies" range from [[BigEater comically huge but otherwise mundane portions]] to [[LethalChef abominations against culinary science]]. When intentionally awful looking/sounding/smelling/tasting things are made, and people respond along the lines of "Who would ever eat that?" it's this trope to everyone else.
* In ''WebVideo/TheFantasticFavioBros'' episode "The Horrors of Ecstasy", [[EvilTwin MaCavio]] picks up the recently defeated [[TheLancer Tony's]] phone and sees the screen say "message sent" after Tony had threatened to text details of the secret plan to TheHero. [=MaCavio=] does not realize what this means, instead thinking it's something to do with massages.
* From ''Podcast/FatFrenchAndFabulous'':
--> "You raising children is just a waking nightmare. Who needs a child-leash when you can put 'em in a regular old gimp mask and dog collar?"
--> "Hey, it's really hard to find a gimp mask that small."
* In ''Machinima/FreemansMind'', Gordon dismisses the idea that the [=HECU=] marines were sent to cover up the disaster by killing everyone inside (Mostly because of FridgeLogic: Black Mesa is a huge facility that employs a lot of people, so what they're doing would be a RevealingCoverUp). Many of his encounters with them involve him yelling over his gunfire that he's on ''their'' side and to ''stop trying to kill him''.
* In [[http://www.ghastlycomic.com/d/20050911.html one]] of the least NSFW (but not least disturbing) pages of ''Webcomic/GhastlysGhastlyComic'', Freddy misses the point of ''ComicBook/ChickTracts'' and decides to help the Chick Boy...
--> [[FangirlJapanese Baka Ecchi Mizu-Boy's Manga Is Too Angry]]. Freddy Fix It [[GenkiGirl Genki]] Style!
* [[TheDitz 2D's]] [[http://gorillaz.com/profile/2d attempts at Sudoku]] on the ''Music/{{Gorillaz}}'' website. Also, according to ''Rise of the Ogre'', the band once attempted to write a script for a movie. After much nagging from Murdoc, Russel suggested one in which "a bullying egomaniac bass-player" gets what's coming to him. The other band members elaborated on the idea, and Murdoc never noticed that they were talking about him.
* WebAnimation/HomestarRunner: Happens in Strong Bad Email #124, [[http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail124.html Secret Recipes]]:
-->'''[[TheDitz Homestar]]:''' (to Marzipan) Hey, girlfriend, have you tried any of this free ice cream Strong Bad made?
-->'''Marzipan:''' Homestar, didn't anyone tell you? That's, like, cottage cheese and The Cheat hair.
-->'''Homestar:''' [[IAteWhat WHAT?!]] (does a SpitTake) Strong Bad told me it was ''sour cream'' and The Cheat hair!
* In ''Podcast/HowDidThisGetMade'', host Paul Scheer somehow missed the fact that ''Film/TheApple,'' a film about a man and a woman being tempted by a character clearly supposed to be {{Satan}} offering them a giant apple, was supposed to be a metaphor for the Garden of Eden story. June Diane Rapheal, normally the group's CloudCuckooLander, had to point this out to him.
* In ''WebAnimation/IfTheEmperorHadATextToSpeechDevice'', when the Emperor learns that he's worshiped as a God (and he had a very strict StopWorshippingMe policy), he reacts with terror. Kitten is quick to assure him that the worship is holding strongly.
* The "Illuminati Confirmed" meme parodies the ConspiracyTheorist trope by taking random images and pointing out the presence of triangles, the number three, or other things with vague resemblances to Illuminati symbols in an image as "proof" that the Illuminati is up to something. A common trend in these is to take something with an obvious reference to the Illuminati, and ignore it in favor of a hard-to-notice triangle shape. The crowning example of this may be [[http://imgur.com/I0C5MC3 a picture of a newspaper ad page]] with an ad for the Illuminati Secret Society, which is ignored in favor of a photo of a woman whose nose is shaped like a triangle.
* [[http://insidemovies.ew.com/2011/02/18/film-independent-spirit-awards-joel-mchale-video/ This]] web-promo for the 2011 Independent Spirit Awards has [[Series/{{Community}} Joel]] [[Series/TheSoup McHale]] (the host for that year's ceremony) be forced to sit down and watch all the pictures nominated for Best Feature... and completely fail to respond in the intended or appropriate way to ''any'' of them.
-->"I dunno about "[[Film/WintersBone Winter's]]", but it's tickling my ''funny'' bone!"
* Peter Pilbeam, the resident hotel reviewer on ''Podcast/TheJohnDredgeNothingToDoWithAnythingShow'' is subject to this a few times:
--> To cap it all, I was very offended at the end of my stay, when I was expected to pay the bill. I found this both awkward and uncomfortable, especially as I had no money. I was then moved to a room that looked almost like a prison cell, which I'll be reviewing next week. And let me warn you: It's not going to be pretty! Thank you!
** Also this episode, after having dyed the carpet in his hotel room ''"a more relaxing, holistically therapeutic shade of pink"'':
--> As I was putting on my bicycle clips and getting ready to leave later in the day, I was heartened to see that my overnight work on the carpet in my room had been discovered, as all of the staff had come to show their appreciation by throwing a generous amount of fruit my way, obviously trying to make up for the mistake they'd made at breakfast.
* In ''WebAnimation/LlamasWithHats'', [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJixW2u4IvQ episode 4]], Carl gives Paul a surprise birthday party featuring a deadly nuclear explosion and a large collection of skinned human faces. On reflection, he concedes: "This was clearly the wrong way to go. I expected them to be cooked more. Raw face is just gross."
* The ''WebVideo/LoadingReadyRun'' video [[http://loadingreadyrun.com/videos/view/325/Son-of-a-Bitch Son of a Bitch]] features this.
* In ''7 Things That Make a [[Website/YouTube YouTuber]]'' by [[WebVideo/MatthewSantoro Matt Santoro]], the world is ending, and Matt gasps in horror... because he almost forgot to save the video that he was editing.
* ''Series/{{Noob}}'':
** When Sparadrap's father turns out to be a priest (the kind that can be assumed to breaking a sacred rule by having children), Omega Zell, who's chronically annoyed by Sparadrap's behaviour, reacts to the info by saying he'd probably turn to god also if he had a child like Sparadrap.
** There's a brief period during which the main guild's command is given to the group's misogynist and {{Noob}}-hater, while all other members of the guild happened to fit one of the categories. While two of the women are discussing the very real possibility of being kicked out, the {{Noob}} chimes in by saying : "No way, you're just imagining things. You see, he's given me an ultra-important mission to complete! He wants me to find a super strong male healer. Then he wants me to recruit him. That's surely a show of confidence!". Guess who's the guild's current healer.
* Nella is battling her dark side and, in great pain, tells WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick to run away. The Chick, who has witnessed all this, has the important question to ask: does Nella really consider her a nerd?
* Website/TheOnion uses this trope in probably over half their work, especially their [[http://www.youtube.com/show/intheknow "In The Know"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/show/todaynow "Today Now!"]] segments.
** The columns by Jean Teasdale are '''made''' of this trope. A sterling example comes from ''Ad Nauseum Vol. 14'', where one column has her discuss how a local magazine called her the worst columnist ever; she reprints the magazine's slams against her, and then ''immediately afterwards'' says that she doesn't know why they hate her. [[HypocriticalHumor And then proves the magazine completely correct.]]
* After seeing WebVideo/{{Phelous}} hanging himself from the horror of ''Caligula'', WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob is shocked that the camera turned itself off!
** WebVideo/EightiesDan is prone to this, like his verdict on Mrs. Crabtree's Halloween outfit.
-->I'm [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 STARBUCK!]], goddammit!\\
That is the worst [[Series/BattlestarGalactica1978 Dirk Benedict]] costume I've ever seen.
** Then he mistakes Dolly's Franchise/SailorMoon outfit for a [[SexyWhateverOutfit sexy Donald Duck outfit]].
* ''WebAnimation/PonyDotMov'': SHED.mov has this moment when [[spoiler:Spike, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie enter Fluttershy's shed and come across all the blood and dissected animals.]]
-->'''Spike''': Oh my god. Look at all this porn!
* Website/{{reddit}} commenters often invoke this trope on purpose. A popular in-joke is to reply to such comments with "[[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/the-old-reddit-switch-a-roo Ahh, the old reddit switcharoo.]]"
* From the Website/SFDebris review of [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration TNG: "The Best of Both Worlds"]], after saying Picard trying to warn off the Borg with threats of new weapons developments is:
--> "... like thinking you can warn off a date rapist by saying you're wearing crotchless panties. You might say that's a tasteless metaphor, but ''you'd be completely wrong!'' It's a simile."
* In episode two of Shephard's Mind, Shephard comes across an alien corpse with a knife implanted in it:
-->'''Shephard''': Oh my god...Is that a knife?! Ho ho, look at this thing! Oh man, it's got a killer edge, it's just- Makes me wanna-
** Then subverted when Shephard notices what the knife is ''in'':
* Sonty Mick from ''Website/TheseWebComicsAreSoBad'' frequently does this in his reviews. For example, when he reviewed ''Webcomic/DinosaurComics'', he somehow failed to notice that every single strip is the same art but with different dialogue--instead, he focused on the fact that "Ryan North can't draw a sad expression to save his life".
* In roleplay Roleplay/TouhouAGlimmerOfAnOutsideWorld Reimu is telling a ghost story, but ghosts are the ''least'' scary part. The most scary part is [[ItMakesSenseInContext asbestos.]]
* ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony'' is fond of using this one.
** In "Funk Master Z", after establishing that Twilight Sparkle is [[OnlySaneMan only voice of reason]] on the topic of racism towards zebras:
-->'''Twilight:''' You know what? You all stay here, and I'm gonna go talk to [Zecora].\\
'''Pinkie:''' Don't worry Twilight, we'll go with you!\\
'''Twilight:''' Did you not just hear a word I said?!\\
'''Applejack:''' Yeah, but we hate listening to you, remember?\\
'''Twilight:''' Fine! Whatever!
** In "Gelatin Swingsets", after Scootaloo learns that Sweetie Belle sold her scooter:
-->'''Scootaloo:''' \\
'''Sweetie Belle:''' Sure, okay.\\
''[Scootaloo [[HeadDesk smashes her face into the piano keyboard repeatedly]].]''\\
'''Sweetie Belle:''' What'd you do that for?\\
'''Scootaloo:''' \\
'''Sweetie Belle:''' Well, maybe you wouldn't feel so bad if you didn't hit your head on the piano.\\
''[Sweetie Belle smiles at Scootaloo.]''\\
''[Scootaloo resumes smashing her head against the keyboard.]''\\
'''Sweetie Belle:''' I like that noise, though. Totally brutal.
** In "The Longest Episode":
-->'''Spitfire:''' In fact, you're not allowed in my presence anymore. ''Stop following me.''\\
'''Rainbow Dash:''' Omigosh, that's a friggin' secret code! That's the secret code for I have to follow her! I am so freakin' good at secret codes.
* ''WebVideo/VideoGameHighSchool'': When Brian unexpectedly enters an FPS duel.
-->'''Ki:''' I've been looking over the official rulebook, and I really think you should read paragraphs twelve through ninety.\\
'''Brian:''' Can you paraphrase?\\
'''Ki:''' Okay, um... read rules. Important!\\
'''Brian:''' ''Not what I meant, Ki!''
* Half the humor in ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'' comes from this. Cecil tends to be a bit... [[KentBrockmanNews easily distracted]], and will often derail a report on the [[ConspiracyKitchenSink bizarre]] [[FantasyKitchenSink goings-on]] in Night Vale to talk about, say, how beautiful and perfect [[LoveInterest Carlos the Scientist]]'s hair is, his violent hatred of [[SitcomArchNemesis Steve Carlsburg]], or how Old Woman Josie posted this ''[[CutenessProximity adorable]]'' video of kittens on her Facebook page along with that message of impending doom, and [[ValleyGirl oh my god it's so cute you have to watch this]]. Or there's the bit in one early episode where the Apache Tracker sneaks into the Post Office and reports seeing numerous corpses and messages in blood on the walls, and Cecil spends the entire segment complaining about how ridiculously racist it is for a white guy to pretend to be a MagicalNativeAmerican.
* The Wikipedia article for "you have two cows" jokes, jokes parodying various economic systems (and political ones) using cows as metaphors for money and currency that often begin with the sentence "You have two cows", features an image of...[[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/54/Two_cows_grazing.jpg/250px-Two_cows_grazing.jpg two cows]], with no references to their role in the joke.
* The xkcd Blog/WhatIf section is fueled by this stuff. After quickly answering how little every person on earth jumping at the same location at the same time would do to the earth's orbit (zilch), it explains how much carnage would result from people trying to get away from said location.
* During the first LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}} playthrough of ''VideoGame/TroubleInTerroristTown'', LetsPlay/SimonLane is subjected to the "spell innocent backwards" test that is meant to weed out traitors (although in practice it has its flaws), when Smiffy of LetsPlay/HatFilms challenges him to do so. Simon then uses ExactWords and spells out "I-N-N-O-C-E-N-T B-A-C-K-W-A-R-D-S". He gets killed for this. [[spoiler:He was a traitor, ending the round]].
* In the Machinima/YogscastMinecraftSeries, specifically ''Shadow of Israphel'', Professor Webley asks LetsPlay/LewisBrindley and LetsPlay/SimonLane if they have a bed for him to rest on. Lewis snarks if he can see any sheep anywhere, since their wool is needed to make beds. Webley replies "I can hardly rest on a sheep, space-man!"
* [=YouTube=] is full of "Confederate Pride" white supremacist videos calling for the extermination of foreigners, minorities, and liberals, all set to a song performed by Gary Lee and Showdown called "The Rodeo Song" - a song written by a French-Canadian from Ontario about the small-town Alberta winter rodeo circuit. It takes a special talent for missing the point to hear the stirring lyrics "It's forty below and I don't give a fuck" and think of Mississippi.
* Website/FourChan's [[TabletopGames Traditional Games]] board had a thread whose original post was [[DistressedDamsel a hot naked woman chained to a rock with a dragon approaching]], with no text. The following posts were all about what type of rock it was, whether they could determine the area from the flowers nearby, whether the dragon could fly with its displayed wingspan, and so on, while largely ignoring the naked woman. Largel
-->'''[[http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/9434393/#9434575 9434575]]''': Her vagina is leaking. I think she might have a medical condition.
** There's also a [[http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/16934717/ recurring]] [[http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/17962929/ series]] of threads where someone post an image of someone famous, usually challenging /tg/ to figure out who they are, and they proceed to make dozens of incorrect guesses, often while berating others for getting it wrong. Often enough, the person's real name is actually ''in the file name'' in the first post.
* [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-8VBxSmHMS1w/ThkdL7mRwbI/AAAAAAAAPXE/Oumc5W6d-H0/s1600/redact.jpg There's a Post Secret about someone whose mother bought them a Post Secret book, but blacked out all the "inappropriate" parts.]]
* There's a subset of the FauxtivationalPoster that combines this with IgnoreTheFanservice.
* In a series of DVD-exclusive reviews, WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic (suffering memory problems while in the Plot Hole) reviews a [[WebVideo/{{Kickassia}} trilogy]] [[WebVideo/SuburbanKnights of]] [[WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee films]] made by someone called "The Nostalgia Cricket". At the end of the last review, the Critic notes how similar the "Cricket" is to him, and after some deep thought, he concludes, "My god, Nostalgia Cricket is... and always have been... WebVideo/{{Phelous}}!"
* ''Podcast/RandomAssault'': On one episode, Drew wanted to talk about Sexy Beach 3. He then went on to talk about how great the environments looked.
* Website/NotAlwaysRight and its sister sites catalogue a lot of this. In [[http://notalwaysworking.com/doesnt-quite-get-how-jail-works/39782 this]] Not Always Working post, a guy insists his friend be let out of jail because he's being "held against his will."
* ''WebVideo/EdgarAllanPoesMurderMysteryDinnerParty'':
** When Poe's romantic rival Eddy is found dead, head plunged in his plate of soup, EVERYONE gets their turn at completely misconstruing the events of the evening as Poe desperately tries to state that ThisIsReality. Has to be expected for writers.
*** H.G. Wells thinks it's a game and sticks his head in the soup too.
*** Charlotte Brontë corrects him: [[EntertaininglyWrong they're supposed to wait out turns to stick their head in the soup]].
*** George Eliot imagines that this is the beginning of a game... investigating the nature of the soup.
*** Louisa May Alcott understands that they should rather investigate the murder... for the murder mystery game. She then proceeds to read her character card, and wait untill this somehow solves the murder mystery.
*** Ernest Hemingway thinks everyone has gone mad... the murder mystery game must be solved logically, looking for the motive of the murder.
** Similarly, when they all find out Eddy's character in the game, attributed by a jealous Poe:
--->'''Ernest''': ''(reading aloud Eddy's character card)''... Virgil, the Foul-Smelling Orang-Utan ! Come on, Poe... Virgil ? That's a terrible name !
* In WebVideo/ResidentEvilAbridged, when Chris confronts Wesker about his betrayal, he asks why Wesker simply didn't leave them behind to be eaten by the [[RaisingTheSteaks Cerberi]]. This tense conversation ends up completely derailed as the two spend almost a minute trying to figure out what the plural word for "Cerberus" is before settling on "Zombie Dogs."
