* There's a variant in one of the stories in Creator/CliveBarker's ''Books of Blood.'' The heroine stumbles across the secret location of the group of geniuses who secretly run the world. (Without the advice of these superior intellects, world leaders are helpless - we see one of them [[CrowningMomentOfFunny gnawing on his own wig]] at the prospect of actually having to make his ''own'' decisions for a change.) And how do the wise masters of the Earth decide the destiny of the human race? Well, for the first few years they debated and debated, but never seemed to reach any conclusion... so nowadays they mostly decide the outcome of wars and the fate of nations by [[spoiler: holding frog races.]]
