* Similarly, ''[[http://www.kryptonsite.com/ Kryptonsite's]]'' annual April Fool's news articles regularly foretell actual developments on ''Series/{{Smallville}}''. The introduction of Mr. Mxyzptlk, Pete Ross leaving, and the Lex/Lana relationship were joked about in 2004, Dean Cain appearing on the show was foretold in 2005, 2006 spoke of an episode called (and including) Bizarro, while 2007 suggested an episode called 'Kara' might introduce Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} to the show, while 2008's April Fools mentioned an episode called '[[ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}} Legion]]'. In some way or another, every one of those has come true...

** His bit explaining how {{Creator/NPR}} is [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible unlistenable]] gives us this gem: "The Tibetian practice of scream-singing rightfully died out in the 4th century BC, but 2 Berkeley trust fund students revived it, and here's a 40 minute sample: AAAH AAH AAAAH!" Come 2015, sure as can be, Belgian theater company [[http://www.ontroerendgoed.be/home/ Ontroeren Goed]] puts out ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9aZ_z6Vae8 Sirens]]'', a play composed primarily of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzsGmdmhDTI scream singing.]]

** The last sketch of the season 34 premiere episode hosted by Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps had a fake commercial for Michael Phelps' infamous 12,000-calorie diet that only works for him (and a cameo by Subway spokesman, Jared Fogle, who declares that the Michael Phelps' Diet "sucks a foot long"). Fast forward to the Bradley Cooper[=/=]TVOnTheRadio episode on February 7, 2009, where Seth Meyers does a Weekend Update joke about Michael Phelps getting busted for smoking marijuana from a bong, with the punchline, "Though, suddenly, the Michael Phelps Diet makes a lot more sense," with a photo of Michael Phelps surrounded by two stacks of pancakes (which were featured in the "Michael Phelps Diet" commercial). Fast forward further to June/July, where Subway actually had a commercial with Jared Fogle and Michael Phelps, together again. It's like a real-life Chekov's Gag.

* Creator/PattonOswalt has a routine on his 2004 debut comedy album ''Feelin' Kinda Patton'' where he refers to the US as a "giant retarded trust fund kid" who ruins other countries with their demands, including such things as demanding Disneyland wherever they go... even if they're in Paris. Three years later, he is the main star of [[WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}} a Pixar movie set in France]]... and a decade after the album's release, a ride based on that film has become one of the most popular exclusives at Disneyland Paris. And now that the Paris-only ride was announced in 2017 to be "invading" the US's own EPCOT...

** A season 36 episode featured a fake trailer for the movie ''Unstoppable''. Denzel Washington (played by Jay Pharoah) asks Chris Pine (played by [[Series/MADtv Taran Killam]]), "Where'd you learn trains, huh? ''ThomasTheTankEngine''?" Couple months later, Cartoon Network's sketch show ''WesternAnimation/{{MAD}}'' came up with their parody of ''Unstoppable'' that also had a reference to ''Thomas The Tank Engine'' (only ''MAD'''s version combined ''Unstoppable'' with ''Thomas The Tank Engine'').

** The fact that SethMacFarlane would become one in a long line of ''SNL'' hosts is funny, considering that all three of his cartoons (''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'', and ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'') have trashed ''SNL'' and its cast members. What's really funny is that the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode "420" (the one where Brian petitions Quahog to legalize marijuana) has a scene where Peter is so stoned that, rather than set up a cutaway joke, just shows a list of celebrities he hates. The two people on that list are Music/JustinTimberlake (who isn't a cast member, but has hosted and cameoed enough times to at least qualify as an honorary cast member) and Andy Samberg (who actually left the show before the season 38 premiere, which is the episode that Creator/SethMacFarlane hosted, and is now on the FOX sitcom ''Series/BrooklynNineNine'').

* At the 2014 White House Correspondents Dinner, Joel Mchale joked that the Kardashians were Republican "because they’re always trying to screw black people.” One year later, in her tell-all interview, Caitlyn Jenner revealed she is Republican.
