* In the 2007 Australian federal election, a lot of advertising by the Labor Party was based on the idea that John Howard, who had been Prime Minister for eleven years, may leave part way through his term if he won the election, and the highly unpopular Peter Costello would replace him. After Labor won, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd missed out on running for his full term when his party replace him with Julia Gillard. After Labor won the next election, Julia Gillard was herself replaced... by Rudd again. After the Liberal Party won again in 2013, Prime Minister Tony Abbott was himself replaced by Malcolm Turnbull after barely two years.

* [[http://archives.cbc.ca/politics/parties_leaders/topics/870/ This interview]] on the controversial CBC television show ''This Hour Has Seven Days'' is particularly hilarious for a number of reasons if you know your Canadian history. To explain/ruin the joke for the rest of you: [[note]]Rene Levesque, the Liberal minister being interviewed, went on to lead the Parti Quebecois (and become premier of Quebec) in the strongest ever movement for peaceful separation of Quebec from Canada, eventually calling for a public referendum on the subject. Pierre Trudeau, the interviewee, would become Prime Minister and leader of the Liberal party, and Levesque's strongest opponent during the referendum.[[/note]]

* An episode of ''Saturday Night Fry'' (1988) included a sketch where StephenFry went on a night out in London. At one point he goes to the theatre: "I spent a thoroughly enjoyable time watching Simon Gray's ''The Common Pursuit''. Half way through the interval, I realised I was supposed to be performing in it." This was eight years before he abandoned the West End production of Simon Gray's ''Cell Mates'', something he's made jokes about since.
