" "In popular culture" in popular culture" in popular culture[edit]

Great, i came here to make a joke about the idea of an article about the use of "in popular culture" in popular culture. surprise, we have a subsection on this. now, if we can find evidence in popular culture that this recursive meme itself is being spread, we can have a further subsection with the title of this comment. anyone for infinite recursivity? Oh, its in here already...well, that's actually really cool.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 02:11, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

In Popular Culture[edit]

This article needs an In Popular Culture section. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.91.201.209 (talk) 21:37, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

yes, since it already has this section, i agree it needs this section, otherwise the section would no longer exist, and the emptiness therein would become a black hole eating up all of WP:)Mercurywoodrose (talk) 07:19, 28 May 2010 (UTC)
I've renamed this section to "Intertextuality", lifting a prominent word from the contents of section - it's maybe a bit oblique, so if anyone has a better suggestion ("self-reference"?), feel free to change it. Calling the section about self-reference "[Popular culture] in popular culture" seems needlessly confusing to the reader, and I assume it's just there because of the Xkcd gag. --McGeddon (talk) 09:42, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

Anonymous user here--I just noticed that, out of the first ten references, about half a dozen are to Christian POV web sites, though the information attributed is general and not POV. Surely there are better (academic, non-biased) sources from which to draw a characterization of popular culture. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.163.4.60 (talk) 16:09, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

I really think someone ought to put in a bit about the xkcd cartoon about this. If no one objects, I could work on it, but if someone is better at this stuff, feel free. It's at: http://xkcd.com/446/. Bigroryg (talk) 23:36, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
Hi, please see the previous discussions on this in the talk archives (e.g. #29) – there's long consensus it doesn't belong here. Thanks, Bigroryg. –Whitehorse1 00:42, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Literature section[edit]

I don't understand why this section was in the article. It was totally unreferenced and seems to be about propaganda. I've deleted it. Feel free to add it back if you can find some references Bhny (talk) 14:28, 12 April 2012 (UTC)
