* [[http://muppetguystalking.com/ muppetguystalking.com]] is the website for a [[Film/MuppetGuysTalking documentary about Muppet performers]], not an informative guide to obsessively researching Muppet guys (i.e. "Muppet guy stalking").

** Though, this is probably the least of the problems with katakana, foreign words are written phonetically, which can make them surprisingly hard to decode, they problem is not lessen by the fact that Japanese words are sometimes written in katakana to make them appear harder.

Some names and titles are stored in a way that is not case-sensitive, but doesn't allow spaces to separate words. So how do you tell one word apart from the next? If you're not careful, you can end up with names that are quite... [[DoubleEntendre odd]]. Thus, this trope.

* The most famous example is possibly a collection of [=URLs=] that were found to be... failures in some way. Try to figure out what they are before highlighting the spoiler:

* In the airline industry, all airfares between cities have an alphanumeric fare basis code of 1-8 characters. The first character is usually the booking code (A-Z) and the second character can be a seasonal designation, such as "H" for high or "L" for low. One type of fare that can include tour packages is appropriately called "inclusive tour" and will have "IT" in the fare basis code. There is at least one instance of an airline filing an '''S'''-class '''h'''igh season '''i'''nclusive '''t'''our fare.

* For one episode, Jacksfilms' "Your Grammar Sucks" series became "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgQ3gKH64no Your Grammar's Awesome]]", in which he highlighted comments from YouTube and other sites that were relatively free of grammatical and spelling errors but were humorous for other reasons. Once he announces the title of the video, the backdrop changes from a wraparound text reading "YGS" to one reading "YGA". The fact that the background subsequently appears to read "GA Y" has to be deliberate, especially because the very first comment he reads is [[ShapedLikeItself "homosexuals are so gay"]], while most of rest are [[SelfDeprecation insults directed at himself or his channel]].
