* The "Cartman Joins NAMBLA" episode of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' involves confusion between the North American Man/Boy Love Association and National Association of Creator/MarlonBrando Look-Alikes. The latter have a grudge towards the former since they managed to grab the "nambla.org" domain first.

Seeing it in other adverts, she lists as one of the interests of his grandfather ''t/v'', thinking that it means to watch ''TV'', without realizing that it's a reference to ''transvestism''. The replies that Walt get to these ads are surprising, to say the least.
