*** Kate [=McKinnon=]'s absence from Mulberry's list of alternate female Ghostbusters seems to suggest that [[ItWillNeverCatchOn she doubts McKinnon's potential to become one of her time's greatest comediennes]], which might sound ironic to readers who now [[AndYouThoughtItWouldFail consider her the funniest star]] of ''Ghostbusters (2016)''. [=McKinnon=] stealing [=McCarthy=]'s chances of becoming the most-beloved Ghostbuster of this movie can make this whole story either Hilarious or Harsher in Hindsight, depending on which actress the reader usually prefers.

** In "Mulberry's Epic Yarn", Mulberry [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberry/index.php?issue=21&page=10 shoots]] [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Willow Rosenberg]] with her FingerGun, then proclaims, "That's official canon, by the way." Later, ''Webcomic/FreeSpirit'' would allow Jessie Harper, another TV character portrayed by Willow's actress, to become a key part of the Platypus Comix oeuvre.

** "Mulberry's 2004 Fall TV Preview" [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberry/index.php?issue=1&page=3&seriesID=4 describes]] ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' as, "...the heartwarming tale of a misfit ninja who has a demon killer fox in his belly button!" Taking this quote out of context today, it could sound like a combination of ''Naruto'' and ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', the titular character of which has a magic gem in his belly button.

* HarsherInHindsight: "My Fat Lady" ends with the less crude Creator/MelissaMcCarthy helping ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' earn a reception as glowing as that of ''Film/Ghostbusters1984''. The hopes that ''Ghostbusters'' would boast one of [=McCarthy=]'s least crude performances would eventually come true, but it would only earn a SoOkayItsAverage critical reception and box office performance[[note]]a 73% Website/RottenTomatoes score vs. the original's 97%, and a worldwide gross that covered the production budget, but not advertising[[/note]. As a less significant example, Mulberry's suggestion that Sony cast Creator/AubreyPlaza as Janine feels ironic considering they would end up giving the Ghostbusters a male secretary (played by Creator/ChrisHemsworth), and that he'd prove more {{ditzy| secretary}} and [[BaseBreakingCharacter base-breaking]] than Janine did.

*** Mulberry's ImagineSpot about tasteless fat jokes ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'' could make includes one where Melissa [=McCarthy=] loudly eats a sandwich during an investigation. Swap [=McCarthy=] with Kate [=McKinnon=], and replace the sandwich with Pringles, and this would perfectly match an actual gag in the movie.
