The reality is so bizarre, ironic, or comically coincidental as to be unbelievable.

A guy and his friend watch the TV show "On Patrol Live." On the show they see a man getting frisked for drugs. The policeman in the show finds the drugs in the man's pants. The man retorts, "Those aren't my pants!" in explanation of what the drugs were doing in his pants. The guy watching the show turns to his friend and says, "You can't make this stuff up!"
