[[quoteright:254:[[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stat_6055.png]]]] [[caption-width-right:254:[[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness Let's all go out for some frosty chocolate milkshakes.]]]] A '''Mythology Gag''' is a sort of Meta-ContinuityNod, wherein a reference to some facet of a show's mythology or past production history (which is not actually considered {{Canon}} in the context of the show) is made. This trope is usually taken largely as a bit of gratuitous humor, since if the program you're watching is "real" then the characters shouldn't be thinking in terms of ''any'' continuity, alternate or otherwise. (Sometimes this will be hilariously [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by the characters, who wonder how they could possibly know such a thing. Also, the CelebrityParadox might come into play.)
