In Catch-22 (1955), Joseph Heller put this bit of dialogue in the mouths of B-25 bombardier Yossarian and squadron physician Doc Daneeka:

"Sure there’s a catch," Doc Daneeka replied.  "Catch-22.  Anyone who wants to get out of combat duty isn’t really crazy."

"That’s some catch, that Catch-22," he [Yossarian] observed.

"It’s the best there is," Doc Daneeka agreed.
