I didn't see this mentioned in this thread, but it's a tradition to bang
pots and pans during an eclipse in some cultures.

rubyo' (politician) -- from Marco Rubio

I'm a bit surprised at how obvious and specific this one is. So maybe the
apparent similarity is a red herring. While I've heard MO express views on
potentially sensitive subjects like politics and religion in person, I
don't think I've previously encountered anything in the vocabulary which
has even hinted at his views on these subjects.

wu'tIbIS (superstition) -- to exhibit woo?

The TV channel TBS was known as the "Superstation".

I don't want to spoil this one, but I'll give a hint: it's a (yet another)
Beatles reference.
