** Then there's HLMencken's 1920 quote that seems to gain popularity every time a new US presidential election comes near:
-->"As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

** Wilson also had the Serbian flag raisen over the White House as a show of support to the little country's plea during WW1. Serbia's flag is still the only non-American flag to ever fly over the White House. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NATO_bombing_of_Yugoslavia But 80 years later...]]

* [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-2183072/Heres-Boris-Johnson-work-way-Number-10.html This image]] of then Major Boris Johnson getting stuck in a zip line during a promotional stunt for London's Olympic Games in 2012 became a [[https://www.thesun.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/nintchdbpict000247356020.jpg?w=600 perfect summary]] of Johnson's situation after Britain voted to leave the European Union in referendum, four years later. Johnson's panicked appearance on TV, not even 24 hours later, all but confirmed that Johnson had campaigned heavily for 'Leave' as a way to distance himself from sitting PM David Cameron (who campaigned for 'Remain') and [[TheStarscream to postulate himself as his successor]] at the head of the Conservative party in the future, [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong all while being confident that 'Remain' would win by a short margin]] and [[PlayingWithFire not wishing it to happen in reality himself]]. Instead, [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor 'Leave' won and Cameron announced his resignation]], [[OutGambitted leaving Johnson no choice]], [[BlessedWithSuck in case he finally succeeds Cameron]], to either handle the exit from the EU himself and take the blame for all negative consequences ([[WhatAnIdiot which Johnson said would be none]]), or to go back in his stance and cancel the UK's exit from the EU. [[MortonsFork Either way]], Johnson is exposed as a liar and his political career is compromised.

** Speaking of Menzel and ''Theater/{{Wicked}}'', since Idina starred in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', Glinda telling Elphaba to "let it go" has taken on a whole new meaning.
** Elphaba simply summarizing Glinda as "[[DumbBlonde Blonde]]" during "What Is This Feeling?" becomes amusing because Idina Menzel's most famous role after Elphaba (or probably even her most famous role period) is the blonde Elsa from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''. To make it funnier, Elsa has several parallels to Elphaba. ** A Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon version of ''Wicked'' will likely never happen but fans have noticed both Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth have appeared in Disney films--Menzel as Elsa from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' and Chenoweth as Maleficent from ''Film/{{Descendants}}''. Jokes about Elphaba being a hero and Glinda taking a HeelFaceTurn have popped up.

* The ''[[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario Vs. Wario]]'' comics printed in Magazine/NintendoPower shortly after Wario's debut in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioLand2: 6 Golden Coins'' said that the reason for Wario's grudge against Mario was when they were playing cowboys as kids, he got to be sheriff only once. Ten years later, the GBA game ''VideoGame/WarioWare Inc.: Mega Microgame$'' features a hidden version of Nintendo's arcade game ''Sheriff'' with Wario taking over the title role. Wario also gets to be a sheriff in ''[[VideoGame/MarioParty Mario Party 2]]''.

** The Series 2 Witch is often regarded as an [[{{Expy}} unoffical minifigure]] of the [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Wicked Witch of the West]]. Fast forward to 2015, when ''VideoGame/LEGODimensions'' includes the ''Wizard of Oz'' film as one of its licenses, and an official Wicked Witch figure is made as part of a Fun Pack.
** The Series 6 Genie is seen as an unofficial minifigure of the Genie from ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}''. When the Creator/{{Disney}} line came along in 2016, The Genie from ''Aladdin'' got his own official Lego minifigure.
