P'lod is a fictional extraterrestrial who, according to the American supermarket tabloid the Weekly World News, actively seeks to advise U.S. politicians for the benefit of the world or the galaxy.

During the 1992 US presidential election campaign, both George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton were photographed reading WWN issues that depicted them meeting with P'lod. Bush got a hearty laugh from the article and Clinton held his copy up at a campaign stop and joked that it proved his campaign had "universal" appeal. The WWN ran the photos of both candidates reading their publication.

The Béla Fleck and the Flecktones album The Hidden Land features a song called "P'lod in the House." It was composed by Future Man, who mistakenly attributed P'lod to The National Enquirer while introducing the song in concert.
