** The exact phrase was used as a running joke in ''WesternAnimation/FriskyDingo''. When the line cropped up again in ''{{Archer}}'', a show with the same creators and writers, it may have been a cross-over gag. Not that it wasn't still funny.

* On ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'', Earl and Randy had discovered that if a certain golfer at a local country club golf course got a hole-in-one, he'd buy everyone at the 19th hole beer. So that they would get more beer (and eventually lunch), they disguised themselves as golfers, and made it seem like he'd gotten holes-in-one every time. The fun was over soon enough, as Randy bragged about their exploits to all the lowlifes at the Crab Shack, who decided to do the same thing, and the country club responded by checking IDs at the door against their guest list.

* Creator/JeffFoxworthy's "Games Rednecks Play" CD regales the listener on how he and his brother play-wrestled and knocked over a family heirloom with an ironing board. Their mother yells "This is why we can't have nice things!"

** Basically {{lampshaded}} during their first Jaws special, where they get hold of three of the actual yellow barrel props used in the original movie to test some shark strength myths. They are told point-blank by the owner that "the only thing we can't do is burn them, blow them up, or lose them." The predictable response is "Has he ''seen'' the show?"

** This has, of course, just caused abusive moderators to lock and delete threads they don't like, making the change rather pointless.

* In the rebooted ''ThePinkPanther'' film, Clouseau is questioning a wealthy casino owner named Raymond Laroque in his home. He asks to look at Laroque's vases and accidentally gets his hands stuck in them. Just before leaving, he asks Laroque if they're real. Laroque tells him they're worthless fakes. Satisfied, Clouseau tries to smash them on a table, breaking the table. As he leaves, a horrified Laroque mumbles that the desk was priceless.

** Particularly notable is the ''Homestuck'' fandom. It's fun to cosplay as one of the Trolls, but then hotels got stuck with trying to clean the smears of gray body-paint all over the walls, doors, and bedsheets. At least one place had to unclog their hot tub after con-goers decided to jump in while in full costume!

* Sometimes, because of a few ''bakas'' who feel that it's OK to trash hotel rooms, pee in the hallway, write graffiti, harass other congoers, harass people who are at the hotel for other reasons, throw loud parties, etc., hotels will refuse to host {{Fan Convention}}s. Or else they'll jack up the cost of the rooms, which in turn causes the price of con tickets to go up. So, please. Be considerate when you go to a con.
