* The fanfic ''Fanfic/GarfieldInAlongCameASplut'' has Garfield playing ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' in the opening, which is apparently about [[IAmNotShazam a guy named Metroid]] who fights [[RougeAnglesOfSatin the Mama Bran]] to save the whales. Either he's just started playing or has a bootleg, but Metroid is about a ''woman'' [[SamusIsAGirl named]] ''Samus'', and Metroids are one of many things she hunts, and the villain is Mother Brain, and there are no whales to be found in the series.

Added DiffLines:

** It also had happened with the mexican website El Deforma. Sometimes said site has to acknoledge that, for the sake of comedy. But also it tends to happen that something that one of their news become truth in just mere hours (as surrealistic Mexico is).

* Referring to the internet as "the internets" and similar. Ian Hislop (probably) parodied this with "The [=YouTube=]" on ''Series/HaveIGotNewsForYou''.
** Derived from this is referring to any website as "the [name of site]", such as "the Twitter". Bonus points for needlessly pluralizing it.
** Parodied in ''TopGear'', with quotes like: "If you are lucky enough to live near an internet, why not visit our website, which you can find at...a computer, probably."
** Toby Keith's song "American Ride" also refers to "the [=YouTube=]".
