* [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Marzipan]] runs a kindergarten program she calls "LURN": "Life-blossoms Undergoing Re-programming Naturally". The "children" (actually dimwitted grown men Homestar, Homsar, and Strong Mad) are referred to as "life-blossoms", the crayons all have politically correct names ("dermal discoveries" instead of "skin flesh", or "blue" instead of "black") and can't color ("so that no one life-blossom outshines the others. That way, they're ''all'' special!"), and the grades are renamed things like roots and grass to give an eco-friendly image even though they still map to letter grades in concept. Strong Bad is somewhat incredulous.

* ''Series/BarneyMiller'' once dealt with an ordinary Middle America couple who wanted their daughter kidnapped from her cult, The Light of the East Temple and Herbarium. The cult has a Hindu-Buddhist ambience, while their leader LooksLikeJesus and seems reasonable. He reassures the parents that many young people are not up to the discipline required (no drugs, no tobacco, no alcohol, no sex) and the turnover at the temple is very high.
