* An odd use: in ''Literature/{{Matilda}}'' by Creator/RoaldDahl, the evil schoolmistress Agatha Trunchbull hates pigtails and punishes all who wear them. A girl protests that her mother likes her pigtails. Trunchbull responds "yer mum's a twit!" Then she grabs the girls by the pigtails and throws her over a fence. [[FridgeBrilliance When you think about it]], it makes perfect sense that a woman who hates ''everything'' about children would of course hate a childish hairstyle like pigtails.
