On a ship: Working during the time between the point you started to fake you are injured (or sick) and the time you can get your actual medical advice to leave the vessel. You have to be present and work as much as you can, but you need to stress out that you can not work up to 100% and you need to moan and look miserable whenever someone sees you.

A sexual escapade involving a couple and another guy. The couple is doing it doggy style against a window on the ground floor of a building. The boyfriend has to be thrusting at a certain rhythm. Then, after a few minutes, he tells the girl to hold on a second and switches with the other guy, who pumps at the same rhythm. The girl has no idea someone else is fucking her. Then her boyfriend puts on his clothes and quickly runs outside, to the window where he waves at his girlfriend. The bitch is scared shitless.
Thaddeus: I'm feelin' kinky tonight, let's do it against this window where everyone can see.
Shaniqua: Alright baby
Thaddeus&Mark: Heheh we gonna ghost this bitch

...5 minutes later...
Shaniqua: Ooooh baby, the rhythmic pattern to which you are currently penetrating me is delectable! Please continue!
Thaddeus: Oh yeah...hold on a minute girl... *switches with Mark*
Shaniqua: Yessss...30bps, just how I like it

Thaddeus: *waving* Hey baby
Shaniqua: Hey boy--OH MY FUCKING GOD *collapses*
Mark: Oh SHIT, she just had a heart attack
Thaddeus: Oh SHIT ghosting is some dangerous shit
Mark: Oh snap, I think yo' bitch is dead!
Thaddeus: Oh fuck...
