YMMV / The Crying of Lot 49

  • Memetic Mutation: The YoYoDyne Corporation has become a popular reference for screenwriters, one of which being the company's responsibility for manufacturing parts for the Enterprise.
    • There's also the muted post horn, which has become a fairly iconic symbol.
    • Also the novel's cases of Fun with Acronyms, Don't Ever Antagonize the Horn and We Await Silent Tristero's Empire. The latter of these was adopted by Radiohead as the name of their fan club.
  • Paranoia Fuel
