Running Gag: Real L Ife
  • Major League Baseball's Washington Nationals hold a race every home game featuring five mascots (originally four) in Presidential costumes. Teddy Roosevelt had never won a race in the first six-plus seasons of the races, and the PR people find weird ways of screwing him out of certain victories every now and again.
    • Finally subverted just one day after the Nationals clinched their first National League East title on October 3, 2012 as Teddy got his first win after 6 seasons and over 500 races. After getting official support from both major political parties.
  • There is tongue-in-cheek "secret society" of journalists called The Order of the Occult Hand who slip the phrase "It was as if an occult hand had..." into their papers as an In Joke.
