* In Manning Cole's ''A Toast to Tomorrow'' one of ex-secret agent Tommy Hambledon's subordinates in the Berlin police force brings in a fellow ex-agent on suspicion of having started the Reichstag fire. The other man gives his name as "Johann Schaffer" during questioning and once they're alone together, Hambledon comments "Next time you are asked for your name, think up a nice one, don't just read one off an advertisement calendar on the wall. It arouses suspicion in the most credulous breast."

* A series of advertisements for the Vauxhall Astra featured the irascible executive JD (Nigel Hawthorne) and his put-upon subordinate Percy Atkins. In one advertisement, Atkins realised to his horror that the hitchhiking teenagers he'd picked up were JD's children, who'd heard all about Atkins from their father but had never seen him. Since they were behind a lorry of sheep at the time, he quickly gave his name as Ramsbottom.
