* One episode of ''Thanks a Lot, Creator/MiltonJones!'' took this UpToEleven with a German countess whose name takes so long to recite that everyone falls asleep and, when they wake up the following morning, the host is ''still'' reciting it. It actually becomes a plot point at the end: trying to remember such a horrifically-long name has damaged her memory so much that she once [[spoiler:left her infant daughter in an Essex pub]] and forgot all about it.
