* Ellen Baker, English teacher extraordinaire.[[labelnote:Explanation]]When Japanese schools updated their English textbooks, someone posted pictures of them on Japanese twitter, who became endeared with the book's {{Animesque}} {{moe}}-ish artstyle. In particular, the teacher, Ellen Baker, received much fan art and image edits. Then the Western side of Twitter caught wind of it and was bewildered, but also kind of endeared. The mutation spread, and now [[CharacterBlog she has her own Twitter account]]. [[https://twitter.com/EIIenBaker If you're interested.]][[/labelnote]]

** In Detroit, the men they hire to play music at sporting events deliberately invoke this trope at every possible opportunity. They'll even mute the loudspeaker volume for the "born and raised in South Detroit" bit (despite the fact "South Detroit" isn't residential in the slightest), causing many a facepalming from visiting fans and television spectators. It's almost a REQUIREMENT to know the song if you're from the area... or at least that part of it anyways.

* Milk sandwiches. [[labelnote:Explanation]] A common joke around Wintertime, particularly common in areas that aren't used to harsh Winter conditions. In the event of a large expected snowfall, many people have been known to flock to their local supermarkets to raid the shelves for bread and milk, just in case they end up snowed in (even if it only ends up snowing about an inch). While bread and milk are both seen as essential provisions, the idea of going out of your way to stock up on ''only'' those two things is seen by many people as absurd, since--of course--you can't actually cook many dishes with just that. This has led to the joke that "milk sandwiches" are a traditional staple of Snow Day, and that you can't possibly survive an inch of snow without milk sandwiches.[[/labelnote]]

** Draconian levels of water conservation.[[labelnote:Explanation]]It's not uncommon for Californians to joke that one should forego anything that involves using water such as flushing the toilet, showering, and even washing hands because "we're in a drought!"[[/labelnote]]
