** Karl once bought an electric fan to help him sleep, claiming that a constant noise helps you nod off and block out other noises. Ricky mocks him and claims "it doesn't work". This is the same principle behind focus/sleep apps which achieve the same effect via generated white noise.

*** In one episode, Karl starts to whinge about a visit to a gadget store and finding a clock powered by a potato. In ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', GLaDOS ends up being powered by a potato, thanks to the machinations of Steve's character.

* CriticalResearchFailure: "Monkey News." Also, when Karl relates a movie idea that Hollywood film execs asked him to pitch (!!!), he basically relates the gimmick of Steve Martin's ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_of_Me_(1984_film) All of Me]]'' without recognizing it was already done.

* HilariousInHindsight: Karl Pilkington pitches the idea of a man aging backwards totally seriously, years before ''TheCuriousCaseOfBenjaminButton'' was released[[note]]It seems extraordinarily unlikely that he was aware of the story it was based upon. Plus, he was pitching it as if it were a viable alternative to human evolution rather than as a story. Of course that was also a plotline on Mork and Mindy...[[/note]].

* StrawmanHasAPoint: While it is quite common for Karl to indeed be talking shit, some viewers point out occasions where Karl does have a good argument or idea in mind, but the issue is that he's usually shut down by Ricky and Steve before he can get around to properly articulate them.

*** Ricky also asks Karl what would happen if someone died while undergoing a rectal examination. Ricky's character in ''Ghost Town'' gains the ability to see ghosts after a NearDeathExperience during a colonoscopy.

** When Karl told Ricky about his idea of putting a mirror on the moon, Ricky asked how they'd get it on the right side. A few episodes later, listeners emailed and pointed out that the same side of the moon always faces Earth.
