How to use "Preposterousness" in context?

When we use the word "preposterous," what do we generally mean? There is no specific definition for the word, as it is primarily used for comedic purposes. However, one general definition is that something is absurd or ridiculous. Something that is preposterous, then, is something that cannot possibly be true. For example, in the movie The Matrix, a character is NEO, or the new Zion, and he is told that he is the one who will lead humans to freedom. He is then told that he must travel to the Machine City and meet the Oracle, who will give him the clue to escaping.
