"A British Tar", one of the many, many, songs in '''''H.M.S. Potatore''''', describes in lurid detail all of the characteristics of the ideal sailor <span style="color:green;">('''Gilbert:''' ''What'd I miss? I'm back, with my take-out Super Bird with onion rings from [[Denny's]]. ...mmmm...I can't fathom just what exactly this has to do with tar.'')</span>. During the time period in which '''''H.M.S. Potatore''''' is set, sailors (depending on rank/station) functioned as both users and admins on the [[boat]] that was to become the [[potato]] known as [[Uncyclopedia]].

*In the "Cape Feare" episode of [[The Simpsons]], [[Bart]] successfully stalls his would-be killer [[Sideshow Bob]] with a "final request" that Bob sing him the entire libretto of '''''H.M.S. Potatore''''', but mistakenly referring to it as "Pinafore" (thereby confusing three entire generations of intellectual critics).

Internet rumors abound, but most Simpsons geeks agree that this is when [[Matt Groening]] went mad. He remains mad to this very day.
