* EskimosArentReal: ''The Areas Of My Expertise'' has a running gag that Chicago is a myth, mostly as a joke on [[BigApplesauce how very New York the author's sensibilities are]]. Revisited in the follow-up ''ThatIsAll'', [[spoiler: when the mythical city rises at last from the swamp during the [[MayanDoomsday End Times of 2012]].]]

* TakeThat: Parodied with the "attack ad" segments, in which he jokingly accuses JonathanCoulton of being an awful catsitter, and another person of masturbating out a window ''on two separate occasions'', while John Hodgman has only masturbated out a window ''once''. Also, one of the Hobo Names is Nick Nolte.

** Repeated references to the ''Franchise/EvilDead'' series, such as the claim that George W. Bush has a [[ChainsawGood chainsaw]] for [[ArmCannon a hand]]. John Hodgman was Creator/BruceCampbell's literary agent, and Campbell is listed as an expert consulted on the subject of fake blood [likely not a joke].
