  • Private Eye: Sometimes seen in Colemanballs / Commentatorballs, and they also occasionally publish examples of this from newspaper articles (this used to be a much more prevalent feature, back when manual typesetting meant that amusing typos were more common in newspapers).



  • There exists a "N-Way Combo" in The Simpsons Pinball Party (i.e. 3-Way Combo, 4-Way Combo).

  • The alternate name for the Linear Target in Bad Cats? "Fish Bone-Us".


  • A common reason for the choice of newspaper clippings on The News Quiz.
  • The premise of the "Janet and John" stories on Terry Wogan.
  • The object of fun in Innuendo Bingo, a game on Scott Mills' radio show on BBC Radio 1. Contestants hold a mouthful of water and listen to audio clips laden with accidental innuendo from recent TV or radio, with the challenge being not to crack up and spray themselves or the other unfortunate contestant with water. It tends to get wet.



  • The vibrating Harry Potter broomstick. This (NSFW) was based on an actual product.
  • Elmo loves balls!
  • My Little Pony: Online product descriptions of the toys put certain items in quotation marks to indicate that they can't actually be used as intended (e.g. plastic cake). (This probably has something to do with avoiding lawsuits.) A description with several words in quotation marks may end up sounding like a Hurricane of Euphemisms.
    • One G1 pony from the Slumber Party Gift Pack is named Pillow Talk. Any time the set is mentioned, someone will probably giggle at her name.

    • They named one of the G2 ponies Morning Glory...
    • My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic:
    • The placement of the Walkin' Talkin' Pinkie Pie toy's battery compartment.
  • The "Berry Beachy" line of Strawberry Shortcake dolls.
  • Is there no one else who finds the fuzzy, vibrating Tickle Me Elmo hands deeply disturbing? Made even worse for one commercial building up suspense for a new model Tickle Me Elmo where they censored Elmo's body with blurry boxes.
