* One Whammy animation from the game show ''Series/PressYourLuck'' introduced in March 1984 had a politician Whammy barking "If elected, I will raise your taxes!" A few months later at the Democratic Convention, Reagan's opponent Walter Mondale admitted he will raise taxes if elected as president, citing that Reagan would do so as well and not be honest about it. [[CurbStompBattle Mondale was beaten soundly on Election Day]].

* In ''TheSumOfAllFears'', it's mentioned that local wags near the [[PeaceThroughSuperiorFirepower Strategic Air Command]] HQ joked that the relatively new (at the time) Command Center was made so that the actual place matched up with the common Hollywood depictions of the facility, which were better than the original structure.

* Between ''Film/GetShorty'' and ''Film/BeCool'', Chili Palmer's movie, eventually released as ''Get Leo'', was a hit. Then the studio forced Chili to make a sequel, which flopped badly enough to make him want out of the movie biz. ''Film/BeCool'' lampshaded the fact that it was a sequel and that [[{{Sequelitis}} sequels are often worse than the original]]. Rather bizarrely, audiences agreed.

* ''Fanfic/TheGreatAlicornHunt'': Writer Ralph Hayes Jr published Chapter 52 in late October 2016, a few weeks before the US Presidential election. The general shock and minor chaos seen in Ponyville upon the breaking news of the [=CMC's=] ascendance was reflected in the reactions to UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump's surprise victory. Diamond Tiara's absolute meltdown was later mirrored by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlkJzkIDrUQ an especially unstable / distraught individual attending the inauguration]].

* ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'' had a rather embarrassing incident for Denise Nickerson, who played Violet Beauregarde. For the most part, the factory scenes were shot in chronological order, with the child actors leaving right after filming their downfalls. However, a broken shoe from Nickerson's wardrobe forced them to switch the filming of Veruca and Violet's respective scenes. After wrapping her infamous transformation into a blueberry, Nickerson flew home to New York. Two days later, she was sitting in math class when all the students started staring at her: her face was turning blue! As it turned out, the makeup had seeped into her pores and was resurfacing. Fortunately, it wasn't permanent and soon cleared up.

* ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'': Near the end of a recent story arc, some robots are discussing their recently granted status as citizens. One robot wonders if that means representation. Another wonders if representation will lead to taxation. In early 2017, Creator/BillGates [[https://www.ft.com/content/d04a89c2-f6c8-11e6-9516-2d969e0d3b65 proposed taxing robots or the profits derived from them]].
