Obscure references

The titles of the past two posts have a couple of obscure references, although one is less obscure than the other (at least to me; I have this feeling that no one under 30 has any idea who Steve Martin is).

I have no idea what you are talking about

This is a clip from TV Carnage (I think it is Casual Fridays) that has a cop with a very thick Canadian accent saying the line in question that's repeated a few times throughout the video. The creators of TV Carnage are Canadian themselves (with significant accents), but even they make fun of how strong his accent is.

The new CPI numbers are here! The new CPI numbers are here!

This is a reference to The Jerk:


I also made a couple of references to the theme song from the LEGO movie (NGDP is awesome), but that is not very obscure. It's hard to jazz this stuff up sometimes.

Also, try to avoid the use of dollar signs as they interfere with my setup of mathjax. I left it set up that way because I think this is funny for an economics blog. You can use € or £ instead.
