The El Goonish Shive example isn't a humorous usage. (see here) One character asks for a ranking from one to ten, and another calmly responds with a reasonable number (3, in this case) accompanied by a simple explanation.

I'm not sure this should count, unless it's a subversion, since people might expect a comical answer, but that seems like reaching.
