* The original ''VideoGame/{{Metroid|1}}'' had the ClassicCheatCode NARPAS SWORD. It doesn't stand for any particular sword, but rather "NAR Password" - the space was due to how the password input worked. There are various theories as to what NAR means, including "North American Release" and "Not A Real".

* In July 2017, WWE held a PPV entitled ''Great Balls of Fire''. Appropriately, there were [[https://twitter.com/Saltine_MMEH/status/884242928704638976 several moments]] where wrestlers' heads were positioned in camera angles to obscure the title on the arena's ribbon displays to say "[[GroinAttack EAT BALLS]]". Meanwhile, when [[Wrestling/EnzoAndCass Big Cass]] entered the stage, his head got in the way of the "C".

* Yes, Pen Island [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pen_Island is real]]. There are actually two Pen islands: East and West Pen island. They are part of several uninhabited arctic islands in Nunavut, Canada. West Pen Island is actually a spit, rather than an island. East Pen Island is situated off the shore of Ontario, a few kilometers southeast of Manitoba, and no, [[{{Pun]] it's not a swallow]].
