Ladies and gentlemen!
Welcome to the disclaimer! That's right, the disclaimer!
This American apple pie institution known as parental discretion will cleanse any sense of innuendo or sarcasm from the lyrics that might actually make you think, and will also insult your intelligence at the same time!
So, protect your family! This album contains explicit depictions of things which are real!
These "real" things are commonly known as life!
So, if it sounds sarcastic, don't take it seriously!
If it sounds dangerous, do not try this at home or at all!
And if it offends you, just. don't. listen to it.
"Disclaimer", from The Offspring's Ixnay on the Hombre

"Gurren Lagann is a work of fiction and any resemblance to actual personalities is not only purely coincidental, but also indicates that people who see said resemblances are probably living way too deep in their own fantasy worlds. Do not attempt to imitate behavior or actions seen on this show, unless you are a really hot babe who wants to dress like Yoko, in which case we're all for it."

"As I look at the disclaimer to the left, I believe that the word 'some' should be replaced by the word 'all'. Oh, and 'Discretion' should be replaced by 'Changing the Channel.'"

Mike: Our lawyers would like us to read this statement before we proceed... (reads) "Adam Sandler is a hack fraud con man."
Jay: Oh, no, no, that's the wrong note.
Mike: Oh, it's the other note from the lawyer?
Jay: (hands note) This is the one we're supposed to read. I'll cut that part out.
Mike: Okay. (reads) "Adam Sandler is a horrible con man..."
Jay: Oh, no, that's the wrong one too.
Mike: How many wrong notes are there?
Jay: I don't know how these all got mixed up in here, but... Let me see... Try this one. I think this is it. (hands note)
Mike: (reads) "We, Jay and Mike of Half in the Bag, are not accusing Adam Sandler or any of his cohorts..." Wait. (erases word) "...or his associates of any criminal wrongdoing. These are merely the opinions of Mike and Jay." Okay! Um... Oh, he stole all the money and embezzled it to all of his friends.
