A [[StockPhrases stock phrase]] and one of those BlatantLies...

Someone is flipping through a slideshow, [=PowerPoint=] presentation or book of photos and has [[EmbarrassingSlide a slide of something they shouldn't, or that makes them look odd]]. It's usually not so accidental when it's embarrassing someone ''else'', but either way the response is usually, "How did that get there?". Sometimes it works - but usually not. Of course, sometimes it's just being spoken in SarcasmMode.

Frequently accompanies PornStash.

* Kodachi Kuno of ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'' has been known to do this. The time she hid tacks in her hand before shaking Akane's hand comes to mind.
** Another example would include the time when Akane tried to get Ranma to eat some magical sakura mochi that could tell whether or not they were destined to marry. Because he doesn't want her to find out that he's going to actually try it, he takes one when she's not looking then goes to eat it in peace. Unfortunately, he forgets himself when he sees Ryoga happily skip away after giving Akane flowers...
--> '''Ranma:''' I'm disappointed in you though. Ya switched to Ryoga just because of cherry blossom marks?\\
'''Akane:''' It's your fault for not eating a cake!\\
'''Ranma:''' Who can believe somethin' so silly?\\
'''Akane:''' What's that in your hand?\\
'''Ranma:''' [[ImplausibleDeniability ...How'd that get here?]]
