(Sadly, the archives of the page have been purged by the moderators)

* When an attack by Boris and Natasha lands [[RockyAndBullwinkle Rocky the Flying Squirrel]] in the hospital, the doctor diagnoses him with a contusion of the cranium. Bullwinkle launches into an anguished revenge campaign upon hearing the severity of the diagnosis, not realizing that in layman's terms, Rocky has a bump on the head.
