** In the sequel the rebels on Hoth fire the "Giant Boob-Nipple gun" at the Imperial fleet. An immature rebel runs out to cop a feel on it in case the joke didn't sell itself.

* ''ComicBook/XFactor'' a mad scientist has his hands surgically replaced with razor sharp spinning propeller blades. Upon completion of the surgery he shouts out his name as "Number One Fan!!" A few issues later he's introduced to the titular team by a sorcerer who similarly shouts his name with a straight face. The team can barely stand they're laughing so hard.

** Other characters pointing this out is actually a RunningGag. Most monsters agree that he's a great guy and a fantastic king... but he sucks at naming things. ''Everyone's'' in total agreement about that.

** Similarly, the episode ''Marge vs. Single, Seniors, Childless Couples and Teens, and Gays'' brought the pair of tongue-twistingly long acronyms SSCCATAGAPP and PPASSCCATAG - "Singles, Seniors, Childless Couples and Teens, and Gays Against Parasitic Parents" and "Proud Parents Against Singles, Seniors, Childless Couples and Teens, and Gays".
** One "history episode" lampshades the RealLife unimaginativeness of the original new world colonists proclivity to name everything "New *".
--> '''Flanders:''' I just thought of a name for where we're headed, "New England".
--> '''Willy:''' Oh that's great. What do you call your foot, "New Hand"?
--> '''Flanders:''' Hey, at least I'm pitching.
