* Nerdcore rapper [=YTCracker=] chose an interesting double-meaning stage name. A "cracker" is someone who exploits the weaknesses in a computer or a network, perfect for the artist's nerdy and subversive image. But "cracker" is also a derogatory term for a white person used by black people: combined with YT (pronounced "Whitey") it adds some self-deprecating humor for being a white man who decided to be a rapper.

* ''[[http://www.supercanemagic.com/ Super Cane Magic ZERO]]'' is a RPG made by Italian devs and featuring the art of Italian cartoonist Sio. It's about a dog that found a magic cane and [[RealityWarper made the world fall into chaos]] with its powers. But "cane" (pronounced ''kah-nay'') in Italian means "dog", so it's about a cane-wielding ''cane'', thus explaining the subtitle "Legend of the Cane Cane". By the way, [[CaptainObvious "Zero" means "zero" in Italian]].
