* Something similar from Germany: During the 60s a sign outside a church in Gelsenkirchen said "Niemand kommt an Gott vorbei" ("Noboby can get past God"). Gelsenkirchen is the home of football club Schalke 04, where Reinhard "Stan" Libuda played, who was famous for his dribbling skills. So it didn't take long for the sign to read "Nobody can get past God - except Stan Libuda".


* A variant: When Yuri Gagarin became the first man in space, Nikita Krushchev said in a speech "Gagarin flew into space, but didn't see any god there", presumably intending to mock the stupidity of people who still believed in God. This line is [[BeamMeUpScotty often misattributed to Gagarin himself and mangled into something like "I didn't see any God up there]], which Gagarin, a devout Russian Orthodox Christian, would ''never'' have said.
