* [[VideoGame/TonyHawksProSkater Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3]] features a giant eyeball attached to a stitched body. How was this abomination born? Well, in the Neversoft logo, the eyeball discovers the body lying on the ground and takes control by jumping into where its head would be. Yeah.

[[folder:Theatre]]
* At least one occurrence in every show by Creator/TeamStarkid
** ''Theatre/AVeryPotterMusical'': Draco dreams of leaving Hogwarts and instead going to Pigfarts, a wizarding school on Mars run by Rumbleroar the talking lion. Also, one of Voldemort's horcruxes is a Zac Efron poster.
** ''Theatre/MeAndMyDick'': The entire premise of the show is a world in which people's genitals and hearts walk around next to them and have their own personalities. There are also secret societies called "The Council of the Pussies" and "The Land of the Dicks" where these body parts go without their humans.
** ''Theatre/AVeryPotterSequel'': Draco's biological father is actually Dobby the house elf, and Peter Pettigrew has turned himself into a Taylor Lautner poster. Also, Harry and Ron are obsessed with Red Vines.
** ''Theatre/Starship'': Commander Up was chopped in half (top down; hot dog, not hamburger) and no longer has a dick.
** ''Theatre/HolyMusicalBatman'': Superman has the ability to reverse time by flying around the earth in the opposite direction. Also, apparently Batman's butler Alfred is Spiderman.
** ''Theatre/AVeryPotterSeniorYear'': Voldemort HATES Snickers bars.
** ''Theatre/TwistedTheUntoldStoryOfARoyalVizier'': The sultan has an inverted penis, and this is how Jafar figures out that the Princess is his daughter.
** ''Theatre/TheTrailToOregon': Grandpa (Tittymitty) fought his own personal war against the lobsters in 1812. The leader of the lobsters, Cornwallis, was in love with his wife, so the two fought. That war is the reason Grandpa's face is on the million dollar bill. The rest of the characters chalk this up to a story Grandpa made up, but at the end Cornwallis returns to pay back his debt to Grandpa and saves the family from a waterfall.
** ''Theatre/Firebringer'': The tribe worships a duck, and Chorn is an alien/god/all-powerful-being. It is never fully explained.
** ''Theatre/TheGuyWhoDidntLikeMusicals'': Professor Hidgens's best friend (and possible lover?) is an Amazon Alexa.
** ''Theatre/BlackFriday'': The movie ''Santa Claus is Going to High School!'' plays in the Hatchetfield movie theater. It follows Santa disguising himself as a high schooler and dating a teenager. Noone knows why Santa is in the high school, least of all the characters watching the movie.
* ''Theatre/BeMoreChill'': The activation for the SQUIP is Mountain Dew, and the deactivation is Mountain Dew Red.

* Half of any given episode of ''Series/TheMonkees'' is this. For instance, "Art For Monkees' Sake", which begins with [[Creator/PeterTork Peter]] painting doors [[note]] painting portraits of doors, not doing maintenance painting of actual doors[[/note]]and only gets weirder from there, culminating in a sequence where Music/{{Liberace}} is seen demolishing a piano with a sledgehammer, for [[BigLippedAlligatorMoment no good plot reason]].

* Near the end of the first ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}'' anime, the main villain catches one of Alucard's bullet with his head by phasing it. He then [[spoiler:sends the bullet flying back down the barrel of the gun, somehow causing it to explode all the bullets into Alucard and reduce him to a pile of blood]]. Then again, this is a show about [[RuleOfCool gun-wielding vampires.]]

* After a rash of shark attacks off of the Egyptian coast, a high-ranking member of the Egyptian government declared that it was the work of UsefulNotes/{{Mossad}} [[UsefulNotes/IsraelisWithInfraredMissiles (think of it as the Israeli CIA)]], who he claimed had planted MindControl chips in the sharks' brains to attack Egyptian civilians in revenge for the Egyptians having too many tourists. Even his colleagues had a FlatWhat moment. It eventually was discovered that someone had been hand-feeding the sharks, which led to the fish biting other tourists in order to figure out where they kept food on their person.
** Note: When Egypt has to defend Israel from a statement one of their own made, you ''know'' it was stupid.

* The Mochi strips in ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'', which feature Estonia's new pets: rice cakes that look and (sort of) act like other nations. In one strip, Mochicanada ate Mochimerica's daddy, a Lettuce that wanted to take over the world, and was proclaimed to be [[GratuitousEnglish "The greatest country!"]]. And that was one of the ''less'' nonsensical strips! There's also the end of the Manga/HetaliaBloodbath2010, which managed to be this, heartwarming, and awesome at the same time. Also, Godzilla-sized Rome singing opera. And regular-sized Rome distracting aliens with ThePowerOfRock.

* Being a GagSeries, ''{{Manga/Gintama}}'' is frequently subject to this (And it almost always gets lampshaded by somebody).

* In ''VisualNovel/Danganronpa2GoodbyeDespair'', when the first culprit goes into a VillainousBreakdown, he suffers an AccentSlipUp and ends up saying things that are increasingly hard to understand, forcing Monomi to translate. At one point, when confronted about how he hid the murder weapon, he blurts out "[[Music/AvrilLavigne Avrillavignnnnnne]]!" which Monomi translates as "Avril Lavigne!" and Fuyuhiko accuses him of "saying random shit to fuck with us."

* ''Podcast/{{Rifftrax}}'' had this gag when riffing ''Film/TheStarWarsHolidaySpecial'' during Diahann Carroll's number:
-->'''Kevin:''' Hey, they stole the ''Series/FamilyAffair'' background! Wait until Mr. French finds out about this!\\
'''Mike:''' They'll find out why they call him "Mr. French".\\
''(long {{beat}})''\\
'''Bill:''' ''(giggling)'' I don't know what that means!

* ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' is this unleaded. For instance, SUN's plot is about green-haired {{Satan}} enlarging the sun so he can have a longer summer and be surrounded by women in bikinis. In Fever 2, Primp Town apparently has a forest, an ocean, some ruins, ''and a desert'' all within walking distance. Not to mention that half the time, people attack each other for no good reason!
