* In ''Series/{{Ellen}}'', Adam is called on his use of the word "susurrus". It turns out to be a real word, but not for a kind of dinosaur as he claimed. Not a Scrabble example, but there was an old {{MTV}} mockumentary about a boy band (''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2ge%2Bher 2ge+ her]]'') in which said boy band hosted a spelling bee where that word came up. When asked to use it in a sentence, they produced: "Hey, man: check out that sussurrus."

* [[Series/TheColbertReport Stephen Colbert]], in response to Hasbro's (or, more specifically, ''Mattel's'') proposed rule change, revealed his "new" middle name, Q[[ColossalCave xyzzy]]. it requires 0-point blank tiles to spell out, as it contains a second "z", but otherwise would be a legal word under the new rules (if it were his actual middle name). However, under those rules, Xexex (an actual arcade game) would be legal (albeit low-scoring due to 2 zero-point blanks).
