** From an article about [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-reasons-to-be-thankful-when-glee-robs-you-blind/ Glee's theft of Jonathan Coulton's version of "Baby Got Back"]]: "It's like getting a PS3 for Christmas and then suing your parents because they stole your song and didn't give you credit. Sorry, our analogy guy is on vacation."

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}'' and his arch-nemesis [[TheCape Metro Man]] tend to get lost in cheesy mid-battle banter whenever they fight - so much so that the DamselInDistress has to remind them to actually do something besides exchanging increasingly bizarre witticisms.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}'' and his arch-nemesis [[TheCape Metro Man]] tend to get lost in cheesy mid-battle banter whenever they fight - so much so that the DamselInDistress has to remind them to actually do something besides exchanging increasingly bizarre witticisms. The metaphors become redundant through arguments:
-->''Megamind'': Over here, old friend. In case you haven't noticed, you've fallen right into my trap.\\
''Metroman'': You can't trap justice. It's an idea! A belief!\\
''Megamind'': Well, even the most heartfelt belief can be corroded over time!\\
''Metroman'': Justice is a non-corrosive metal\\
''Megamind'': But metals can be melted by the heat of revahnge!\\
''Metroman'': It's "revenge", and it's best served cold!\\
''Megamind'': But it could be easily reheated, in the microwave of evil!\\
''Metroman'': Well, I think your warranty is about to expire!\\
''Megamind'': Maybe I've got an extended warranty!\\
''Metroman'': Warranties are invalid if you don't use the product for its intended purpose!\\
''Roxanne'': [groans] Girls, girls! You're both pretty! Can I go home now?
