[[AC:{{Anime}} and {{Manga}}]] * In Creator/{{CLAMP}}'s ''Manga/{{Wish}}'' manga, Angels are running around terrified of what God thinks of their romantic entanglements. Turns out God isn't as Smitey as characterized. [[AC:{{Literature}}]] * Most decidedly '''not''' PlayedForLaughs in Creator/GuyDeMaupassant's short story "Literature/TheNecklace": A woman borrows her friend's diamond necklace for a fancy dress party, only to lose it and buy a new one, using loaned money that takes her a decade to pay back. Near the end of the story, she runs into her friend (whom she hasn't seen since the party) and reveals the truth. The friend, tears welling up in her eyes, reveals that her necklace was merely "paste" (costume jewelery), and didn't cost a fraction of the replacement's price tag. [[AC:WesternAnimation]]
