"So, why are colds bad criminals? Because theyíre easy to catch." ('''Drum fill''') "And what happens when you witness a ship wreck? You let it sink in." ('''Drum fill''') "And why should you never eat a clock? Because itís too time consuming." ('''Drum fill''') "Hey, I want a job cleaning mirrors. Itís something I can really see myself doing!" ('''Drum fill''').

That's it! Enough with the SelfDemonstratingArticle! Stop that nonsense already!

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry1InTheLandOfTheLoungeLizards'': One of the rooms in the Casino is a theater stage. Sometimes it's empty, sometimes it has some dancers, and sometimes there is a stand-up comedian making jokes. With a drummer.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* ''WebAnimation/HowItShouldHaveEnded'': Loki has escaped from the [[Series/Loki2021 Time Variance Authority]] and told everyone in the Villain Pub about the problem with variants. Thanos shows up and says "Finding out how other variants of you succeeded where you failed could totally make someone... snap"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'': Played with. Dr. Zoidberg starts his speech with a "LadiesAndGerms" introduction, which is followed by a drum fill. He protests that it wasn't a joke, as there ''is'' a germ among the audience. Then he says "Now I'm not saying Professor Farnsworth is old, but if you consider his age, he's likely to die soon." Then he protests that that ''was'' a joke, and the drummer failed to make the drum fill!

For those who are not drummers, the "ba-dum-ching" [[RealityIsUnrealistic you think of]] when someone says rimshot is ''not'' a rimshot. A real rimshot is when you hit the edge of the drum and the head at the same time. The "ba-dum-ching" is called a "{{sting}}".

Bob tried to make a joke, but [[CannotTellAJoke it didn't turn out as good as he hoped]]. Maybe he shoehorned a reference in too awkwardly (shoe goes on, shoe goes off), or he has bad comedic... timing, or he just wasn't able to tell what was supposed to be a snappy joke in a snappy manner, so the wording he used ends up taking up way too much space for something that really wasn't worthwhile to anyone who was reading it in the first place. Or maybe he relied on a StockShtick that everyone's [[HeardItAMillionTimes heard a million times]].
