* Obvious, flashy displays of knives will generally bring on ''CrocodileDundee'' jokes/impersonations, usually centered on questioning whether that qualifies as a knife or not. In the short ''Don't Be a Bloody Idiot'', they kept trying to cajole the Tasmanian host into showing them a knife. They were rather furious when the knife he finally does produce is a small Swiss Army Knife.

** The riff for ''Film/ThreeHundred'' is a subversion, though it doesn't seem that way at first since the joke still involves corpses. The guys refer to a huge pile of dead bodies as "Phil Spector's wall of men," which is a reference to the "wall of sound" technique he pioneered as a music producer.
