* The colloquialism "American as apple pie" is inaccurate; apple pie originated in England. Although "being based on something that originated in England" ''is'' a defining American trait...
** This entry it self is an instance of this: apple pie originated with the German settlers to Pennsylvania.
*** Not so. It is originally Dutch and arrived in Nieuw Amsterdam before the British did.

** In the ''[[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Deep Space Nine]]'' episode "Explorers", O'Brien claims that Romulans are particularly prone to doing this, though he doesn't give any specific examples. Considering the fact that they call themselves Romulans, and their core planets are called Romulus and Remus, not to mention the whole Romulan Senate being styled after a certain earth based senate from [[AncientRome the past]]... Well, O'Brien was stating the obvious.

* TruthInTelevision: The SovietUnion claimed that many famous inventions were really made by Russians. They went so far that some comedians started parodying this claim with their joke about the greatest inventor ever, "[[Creator/LeonardoDaVinci Lenard Vishinsky]]". Chekov's "made in Russia" bit in ''Star Trek'' is a direct reference to this, making it [[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp amusingly dated now]].

* In Robert Zubrin's ''The Holy Land'' the Minervan (yes, alien) priestess Aurora insists throughout the entire book that Shakespeare, the writer of "Rule Britannia", and {{Jesus}} were all Minervans simply on grounds that [[NoTrueScotsman no Earthling]] [[PunyHumans could have been that brilliant]]. Admittedly, Earth is actually the home planet of the Minervans (who evolved 20,000 years before modern man, who the Minervans call "proto-human savages"), but Minerva never gives any evidence for her claims that's better than her own racism.
