* ''Webcomic/DinosaurComics'' titles originally started out as a reasonable description of the events in the story. However, they have since evolved into an alternative to AltText, usually with bizarre capitalisation rules and sometimes with nothing to do with the story. For example, one recent comic was "[[http://www.qwantz.com/archive/001157.html when i was a kid i solemnly vowed that, when i was an adult, i would make a batch of chocolate chip cookies and eat all the dough, because my mom wouldn't let me eat raw cookie dough. it is a vow i have yet to satisfy and which haunts me still]]" and another is "[[http://www.qwantz.com/archive/001143.html last night i was at a friend's house and mimed a helicopter, which caused me to break a glass and spill beer everywhere. i was like, man, why did have to mime a helicopter? i felt terrible and it wasn't even a very good helicopter impression]]". The titles are only visible from the [[http://www.qwantz.com/archive/list.html archives]] and RSS feed anyway, making them little more than a 4th punchline to the comic (after the alt tag and email comment {{Easter Egg}}s).

* Fedora (and Red Hat Linux, before it split into Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux) uses a naming convention where each release's codename is related to the previous release's codename, but in a way different from the previous previous relation. For example, Bordeaux is a region in France, and also a comic book character; Zod is [[{{Superman}} comic book character]], and also a record label; Moonshine is a record label, and also a movie title.
