** There is a Simpsons comic book issue in which Homer and his pals became volunteer firefighters, and when they realized they couldn't do anything when a fair caught on fire, Ralph comes up with an idea to put out the fire, by ''singing the birthday song and blowing it out like birthday candles''. The whole cast begins to sing the song, but then the Blue-Haired Lawyer comes in warning them about the royalties of the song they'd need to pay to sing it before he passes out from the smoke. So Lisa writes up a new unique birthday song ("…pleasant birthday to that person, we're glad you're not dead!") and then they all blow on the fire, which ''actually extinguishes the blaze!''
