Portions of the name sound like vulgarities in English and Spanish, leading to its use in various jokes. Titicaca is the lake that Cornholio, alter-ego of Beavis of MTV's animated series Beavis and Butt-head, claims to come from although he believes the lake is located in Nicaragua.

The word 'Trekdom' is used interchangeably with 'Fandom' when referring to Star Trek Fandom or their fans and has been in use by fans of Star Trek fans for several decades.
After the recent cancellation of Star Trek: Enterprise, the future of Trekdom is still uncertain, though it has been scaled back to its own core. Some may believe that Trekdom might die off, or it might be extinct at the onset of such conflicts such as World War III.

His nickname, "Xanana", is taken from the name of the 1970's rock and roll/comedy group Sha Na Na.

(Phil) Hartman met comedian Paul Reubens while working with the group and the two became friends, often writing and working on material together. One such collaboration was the character of Pee-wee Herman and the script of the feature film Pee-wee's Big Adventure. Hartman also met Jon Lovitz while with The Groundlings. Hartman was fluent in German and a video circulated once of him doing a standup routine in the language.
Hartman worked part time as a graphic artist, including designing album covers for popular rock bands. Hartman's covers include:
* Steely Dan's 1977 album Aja
* Poco's 1978 album Legend
* Firesign Theatre's 1980 album Fighting Clowns
* Three album covers for the band America
* Crosby, Stills & Nash's logo.

(Rolf) Harris has played the didgeridoo on two albums by English pop singer Kate Bush, 1982's The Dreaming and 2005's Aerial. His biggest hit, however, was a gimmick-free rendering of the sentimental song "Two Little Boys" (1969), a departure for him in that he usually recorded either his own compositions or traditional songs. Harris also created one of his most famous roles in the 1960s, Jake the Peg.

From Laos national football team:
The 2006 Thai comedy movie Lucky Loser was originally filmed to be about a soccer team from Laos, but was later re-edited to replace Laos with a fictional country named Arvee, after complaints from Laotians, as the film mostly plays on stereotypes of Laos. Ironically, in the finished product, Arvee has made it to the second stage of World Cup qualifying as a lucky loser, just as Laos had really done during 2006 FIFA World Cup qualification.

The crux of Brandt's argument can be summed up with these paragraphs from the Salon.com article.
When you type "NameBase" into Google, Brandt's site comes up first, but Brandt is not satisfied with that. "My problem has been to get Google to go deep enough into my site," he says. In other words, Brandt wants Google to index the 100,000 names he has in his database, so that a Google search for "Donald Rumsfeld" will bring up NameBase's page for the secretary of defense. For some reason, though, all of NameBase's deep pages -- its pages with specific names and citations -- have a low Google page rank, which causes them to show up low in the search results. Search for "Donald Rumsfeld" in Google and in the first five pages you get a lot of .mil and .gov sites, some news stories, and some activist sites. Namebase's entry on Rumsfeld doesn't come up. (It is in Google's database, but to find it somebody would have to first wade through hundreds of results.)

Richard Knerr and Arthur "Spud" Melin, two University of Southern California college graduates unhappy with their employment, began the company in 1948 as "WHAM-O Mfg. Co." in the Knerr family garage in South Pasadena. Their first product was the Wham-O slingshot, made of ash wood, which Knerr and Melin would promote by showing off their own skills at demonstrations. The powerful slingshot was used by clubs for competitive target shooting, as well as for small game hunting. The name "Wham-O" was based on the sound of the slingshot's shot hitting the target. When they outgrew the garage they rented a building on S. Marengo Ave in Alhambra, California, in 1955, the company eventually moved its manufacturing plant to neighboring San Gabriel, California.and the owner of the frisbe also knon as the pluto platter

There were three different covers to Who Needs Guitars Anyway? when the album was released. The first was of Judith Pronk sitting on a record needle naked with only a cowboy hat on in a blur. The second was of Judith pointing a glowing finger and smiling. The third was much like the first but with Judith clothed. There was much controversy over the original cover, with some of its defenders slating the release of the other two covers. The original cover was briefly used to promote the album – promo posters and flats were produced but quickly removed.
