** [[Literature/TheOdyssey Ulysses]] would have saved himself several years of hardships had he not bragged to Poseidon to the point of refusing him a sacrifice, or mocking his son Poliphemus after blinding him. As a man of proverbial wit, you'd expect him to know better than anger the god of seas, [[WhatAnIdiot especially if you and home sweet home are hundreds miles of sea apart]].

--> Dr. Hill: "Which makes me wonder if this ''lawyer'' has any idea as to the kind of grades one has to receive in college to be accepted at a top medical school. If you have the vaguest clue as to how talented someone has to be to lead a surgical team. I have an M.D. from Harvard. I am board-certified in cardiothoracic medicine and trauma surgery. I have been awarded citations from seven different medical boards in New England. And I am never, ever sick at sea. So I ask you, when someone goes into that chapel and they fall on their knees and they pray to God that their wife doesn't miscarry, or that their daughter doesn't bleed to death, or that their mother doesn't suffer acute neural trauma from post-operative shock, who do you think they're praying ''to?'' Now, you go ahead and read your Bible, ''Dennis'', and you go to your church, and with any luck, you might win your annual raffle, but if you're looking for God, He was in Operating Room Number Two on November 17th, and He doesn't like to be second-guessed. You ask me if I have a God complex? Let me tell you something: I ''am'' God."

** [[spoiler:Ike]] from ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn]]'' makes a similar boast at the end of the game [[spoiler:right to the goddess Ashera's face]]. Unlike the sucker described above, however, [[spoiler:he has the skills to back it up]].
--> '''[[spoiler:Ike]]''': Make your peace with whatever the gods worship. Your end is near.



--> Delsin: Angels? Are you kidding me right now? So either one of the escapees can make angels... or I'm going after God. And I do not like my odds in that match-up.

* ''WesternAnimation/AngryBeavers'' did a similar spoof as ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' did at one point, with Daggett claiming that they were "Bigger than sliced bread", with people acting in an identical manner to Music/JohnLennon's "Bigger than Jesus" boast. Subverted, however, when Daggett clarifies that he ''[[BlatantLies meant]]'' that they were physically bigger than a loaf of sliced bread, placating the fans.

** Probably justified in that there probably has not been such a large collection of worms in one place ever. Is it blasphemous if it's literally true?
