* In ''ComicBook/SupermanAndBatmanGenerations'', Lex Luthor says he managed to travel through time with a portal "generated when acetylsalicylic acid is irradiated at a 108 megahertz frequency"...in other words, he "irradiated" some aspirin tablets with an FM radio. Presumably this is a playful nod to SilverAge comics [[http://www.superdickery.com/time-travel-made-simple/ like this one]].

* ''Fanfic/HopToIt'' portrays Max as this even when he's speaking a second language.
-->'''Max''': (''asking Jack about the Femme Defamation attack'') However did you ascertain you would be unaffected by her onslaught? (''{{beat}}'') I hope I said that correctly in English.
-->'''Kim''': (''in French'') You and your big words!
-->'''Max''': Yes, well… A different language is no excuse to speak like a simpleton.

** Music/AesopRock takes this UpToEleven and is perhaps the king of this trope in regards to hip hop. A data science [[https://pudding.cool/2017/02/vocabulary/index.html study]] showed that he has the largest vocabulary out of the sample of 85 hip hop artists. The study used the first 35,000 words of each artist, along with the first 35,000 words of Literature/MobyDick and works of Creator/WilliamShakespeare, and analyzed the unique words used. Aesop came out on top with a whopping ''7,392 unique words'', even beating Literature/MobyDick (6,022 unique words) and Shakespeare's works (5,170 unique words). He and [[Music/WuTangClan GZA]] (6,426 unique words in only his solo albums) were the only two artists to top Literature/MobyDick.
