* Parodied in ''Webcomic/TheBirdFeeder'' [[http://thebirdfeeder.com/comic/10 #10]], "Sund'y Comic." Lewis recites a poem with a large number of apostrophes, and Josh asks him if he can trade some of them for letters. FridgeLogic kicks in when you realize there's no way Josh could have noticed the apostrophes.

* Lampshaded in the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' novel ''Doctor's Orders'', by Creator/DianeDuane. The first Federation survey team sent to a certain planet reported that one of the three sentient species there was called the ;At, but forgot to explain how the semicolon should be pronounced. At the beginning of the book, the ''Enterprise'' crew generally pronounce it as a click; later on, Uhura says that it's probably more of a glottal stop.
