I'm surprised no one mentioned The Goon Show - the inspiration for Monty Python. Or The Goodies or Welcome to Nightvale, also mad mishmashes of nonsensical fun.

That line in Zero Punctuation always baffled me, because even without playing the game, the context seemed pretty clear. Enemies are charging, and the borderline sociopathic woman-child has a giant crossbow. It's not exactly rocket science.

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
