There's a poster hanging up in the kitchen at my work that says, "Hang in there and smile!" It has about six different pictures of cats on it, and none of the cats is hanging from a tree limb.
There's absolutely no reason to feature cats on a poster about hanging in there unless the cat is hanging from a tree and it's a pun. The cats are neither hanging in there nor smiling.
But I do smile every time I see it, so I guess the poster's doing its job.
