* The biggest irony about [[SongParody parodies]] of the original song from ''Theatre/ThePiratesOfPenzance'' is that most speakers who perform parodies really ''are'' experts in whatever fields they sing about, unlike the character singing the original, a blowhard who truly knows very little about them.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Channel_10_(Israel) The Israeli Channel 10]] has suffered for years (since 2008) of financial difficulties that put it under risk of shutting down, which was further exacerbated by their open feud against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as they investigated and reported many of his alleged cases of corruption: Netanyahu went on the offence against the channel, bashing it and threatening to sue for slander and trying to block any government effort to relieve the channel of its debts, and using his own connections in the Ministry of Communications and in the channel itself. When the channel decided to comply and let go of their staunch opposition, they finally got some relief. In response, Israeli satire show ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gav_Ha%27Uma Matzàv haUmá]]'' featured [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7JJlD_qUfI a song set to this tune]], starring the main panelists and involving the whole cast and crew as well, saying they got the message and [[BlatantLies refrain from criticising him]]. (Eventually the show did have its contract end, supposedly for financial reasons, though critics have suspected foul play; it was later continued, amusingly enough, on Channel 10.)

* ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' staged a duet of the song with guest host and comedienne Gilda Radner and a seven-foot tall talking carrot. The scene bore an ironic resemblance to another scene in ''Pirates'', as Radner had requested a six-foot tall talking ''parrot'', but was misheard.
