** Jossed. Robin is surprised to find out she can't have children in Symphony of Illumination, surely someone who was born male would know that they can't get pregnant, as they would have no uterus, unless they where about as clueless as [[SouthPark Mrs Garrison]] or had blocked out a lot of memories.

** Titillandus has connotations of "tickle" far more than "poke", and is typically translated that way. There are also unrelated, nitpicky problems with the translation you chose. As for the original WMG, "don't poke the dragon!" or "don't poke a sleeping dragon!" has been around in certain wide-ranging, fantasy-fan circles for ''years'' before ''A Game Of Thrones'' was released, possibly as long as or longer than First Edition D&D has been around. That doesn't mean he didn't get it from ''ASongofIceAndFire'', and I'm pretty sure he does read the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' books, but my memory can't supply specific examples.

[[WMG: Victoria does the drumroll at every wedding.]]

Being the cake maker, she goes to a lot of weddings. As such, she is constantly being propositioned. Tired of offers for one night stands, she began the Drumroll to weed out men who were just looking for sex. Ted is the first man to care enough to hunt her down afterwards and have a relationship instead of just looking for sex.

[[WMG: Marshall and Lily's third child]]
Is named Holly. Think about it- [[Series/LandOfTheLost Marshall, Lil, and Holly]]- and not just because of the frequent "sandwich" use, but also a fan of cryptobeasts like Marshall would be a huge ''Land of the Lost" fan.

He is a high-functioning autistic savant, who is ridiculously good with numbers (he could memorize a metric shitton of prices and add them up for ThePriceIsRight). His job at the company is finding ways to evade taxes, that's why he can't discuss it.

[[WMG: Ted was looking forward to "The Wedding Bride"]]
He wanted to take a girl to watch it and win her sympathy by telling her the movie was based on what happened to him. Once he saw how the movie portrayed him, he got mad.

\n[[WMG: "The Wedding Bride" suffers from an in-universe SeinfeldIsUnfunny syndrome.]]
In 2010 the movie was called "groundbreaking" and became one of the most watched movies ever, and yet in 2030 the kids don't seem to doubt Ted's claim that the movie was one big cliche that did little more than mock him. Either they never watched the movie, because it wasn't considered a must-watch anymore, or it was considered such a cliche in 2030 that they believed it was a cliche even in 2010.

* Alternately, rather than Felicia Day and Simon Helberg, in this universe Penny and Moist were played by [[TheGuild Codex]] and [[Series/TheBigBangTheory Howard Wolowitz]]. Possibly the greatest crossover ever?
