** That whole trailer is tongue-in-cheek done to perfection; one specific moment has Hitchcock talk about chicken eggs, and how he won't go into "which came first" because he prefers not to deal with "controversial subjects." Right.

* When talking about making offerings to the birds:
-->'''Peisthetaerus''': Is a goat being slain for King Zeus, there is a King-Bird, the wren, to whom the sacrifice of a male gnat is due before Zeus himself even.\\
'''Euelpides''': This notion of an immolated gnat delights me!

Added DiffLines:

There are two completely unrelated stories, from different eras, by this name.

[[AC:The Aristophanes play]]
* The hilariously OTT bogus soothsayer (whose oracle is all about what to give the first soothsayer who comes to Cloudcuckooland), and how Peisthetaerus sorts him out.

[[AC:The Hitchcock film]]
