* One ''Literature/WinnieThePooh'' story starts with Christopher Robin mentioning that he's seen a heffalump, which leads to Pooh and Piglet trying to catch one. The illustrations clearly shows them dreaming about [[spoiler: elephants]], although the narrative claims that neither Pooh nor Piglet has any idea what a heffalump looks like.

** ''Most'' of the "spoonerisms" attributed to Spooner are apocryphal, were said by someone else, or were invented. For example, there's no proof Spooner actually said "You've hissed all my mystery lectures and tasted two whole worms, and you will leave this college on the next town drain!" The only one he ''admitted'' to was saying the name of a hymn as "Kinkering Congs their titles take" instead of "Conquering Kings."
