Anyone else have their key moment references fall flat due to underexposure to quality pop culture?

I've had multiple occasions of having the perfect reference to make...

If only I thought anyone other than me had ever played that game.

Over... and AGAIN!

As the only real nerd at my job? Almost daily.

Sometimes I'll just make the reference anyway and just let everyone think I'm nuts.

For the most part I think I was the guy who failed the check to get the reference; the rest of the group had a bit more overlap for these things than I did (for example, having not read LotR until about 2001, at which point I was already in college).

We did have multiple instances of a GM (still including me) trying to be coy with a "subtle" pop culture reference and doing too good of a job of it so that in the end said GM would break down and tell us because it was no fun having no one notice. XD

Happened to me once as DM with a villain based of Baal from Stargate SG-1. I figured at least one person would work the same path of logic. Took the guys three sessions to figure out the deception and nearly killed themselves accidentally in the process.

Nowadays I've learned to keep more obscure references on the sidelines rather than major plot points.

It was kind of annoying seeing a buddy's LFG reference mistaken for an MLP reference by a GM, who reacted... negatively.
I also didn't fully get the significance of whether a character screamed "ORAORAORA" or "MUDAMUDAMUDA" when in melee, but at least I understood that both were Jojo references.

When I make references, I go out of my way to keep them subtle. If anyone else recognizes that I used the Dazzlings from Rainbow Rocks as a group of Slaaneshi Daemonettes, I expect they'll have the good sense to giggle and not explain it to people who'd react with anger.

"For Pony!"

Is it bad that I immediately and completely understood exactly what reference could have been legitimately LFG but mistaken for MLP?

I can't do any quotes or references to it because no one I know watches Anime. (granted I suppose there are many different types of nerds but seriously. no one in my school has ever watched an Anime and if they have they purge it from their mind so as to not be seen as a nerd)

I spent two years working in a Home Depot. This event was nearly a daily occurrence. Only job I ever worked where I was the smartest guy in the room on a daily basis. I didn't even realize it until someone else pointed it out. To this day, I get a warm and fuzzy feeling when I know I'm not the smartest guy in the room.

However, I have read the book.

"I Don't Often Use This Sentence"

Honestly, I find the movie far superior.

It weaves the obnoxious tangents about the fictional author's childhood into the story more naturally, with the only major downside being that Humperdink isn't the absurdly muscular, rides-four-horses-bareback-at-a-time outdoorsman he is in the book.

Aaaand now I can't unthink of humperdink looking like Yatzee's image macro for the "glorious PC master race" when he does a zero punctuation video...

The lesser known tale is of the great nosed beast of Grimweld, which terrorized small villages without mercy. This beast was fortunately, only 2 feet tall and only ever killed a small child, whom nobody liked anyway as he was always picking at his scabs, which is gross.

The beast was nonetheless prized and hunted, with a bonus for the eradication of the long nosed species. Many tried, but small size comes with light feet, and the pinocchious beast escaped every time.

Finally, a champion from a faraway town known as Nosa Village swore to kill the beast and collect the money, for his family ate only brown bread and that stuff is shit. He talked to the locals, and discovered that the only other member of the Nasalus Proboscus species was an aged mother hiding in the mountains where the younger beast dwelled (It's not clear why the villagers didn't tell anyone else where the beasts lived. It's assumed that most hunters skimmed the text when talking to the villagers, as they didn't want a dumb side-quest that involved gathering potatoes).

So the hunter set off into the mountains, clad head to toe in camouflaged leather (This is the same as regular camouflage, but much sexier). He tracked the young beast for several weeks, finally cornering it in a gully. The snotty monster attempted to impale the hunter on it's nose, but the hunter had brought one of those nasal spray things, and jammed it firmly up the beast's anus ("Why not it's nose?" you may ask. The ways of the hunter are mysterious and smelly, we do not question his methods). As it lay there dying and breathing surprisingly easy, the hunter looked upon his reward money, and saw that it was good.

But an arrow appeared at his feet with a message! He grabbed the message, wary of what it might contain.

White Bread, now $4.99

The hunter was anguished, for the beast's reward money now only gave him enough white bread for 3 weeks instead of a month! He realized what had to be done, he had to destroy this foul and sniffly species, for his newborn child needed those carbohydrates!

It took months for him to find the cave in which the mother rested. As he entered, he saw the look of snotty futility on her face and almost broke. But he steeled himself, lifted his blade over her head, and in respect for this noble, mucus-snorting creature, spoke for the first time in many months.

"My name is Sinus of Nosa Village. You fathered my kill. Prepare to be pierced."

Huh. Last princess bride reference we had was "dragons of unusual size? I don't think they really exist."
