* Used straight and parodied various times in ''TheSimpsons''. A common parody is to have one of the heads have nothing to do with the topic at hand or be completely different to what the person actually said.
** A particularly neat little parody is when Homer eats too many spicy chiles and has a vision of a coyote (voiced by Music/JohnnyCash) telling him to find his soulmate. After a lot of fruitless searching, Homer gets discouraged and the coyote speaks to him again:
--->'''Coyote''': Find your soulmate, Homer.
--->'''Homer''': But where?! Where should I look?!
--->'''Coyote''': This is just your memory. I can't give you any new information.
