* DavidDrake's characters often refer to "wogs". However, it is only in settings where [[ValuesDissonance it is clear the characters actually are somewhat bigoted]]. In the ''Literature/BelisariusSeries'', for example, he snuck it in in the last book.

** He always starts fights by having Gotrek "Run his thumb along his axe until it drew blood." Considering the nature of his axe (one of the most powerful rune weapons in the world, originally thought (and made out to be) one of the two belonging to a Dwarf ''god!''), it's a wonder Gotrek has any thumb left. Of course, it's because he's just that BadAss.

** One of Schulz's idiosyncrasies is that he puts nicknames (other than those that are variants of a given name) into inverted commas - thus it is not "Peppermint Patty" but "'Peppermint' Patty". This even applies to Snoopy's biplane: "Here's the World War I flying ace in his Sopwith 'Camel' zooming through the air..."

* DaveBarry really likes to write "I am not making this up", "This really happened", or "I am not making up this _______" after something that is strange but true. He uses a lot of hyperbole, so this explains that, no, he is not exaggerating for comedic effect.
