**Though the origin of the term "break a leg" actually comes from wishing the actor performs so well, the audience will rush the stage in admiration and in the ruckus the actor's leg would get broken. It apparently made sense when they came up with the idea.

* The way some Germans dance around words connected to the 1933-1945 era of their history . Helmut Schmidt (a former chancellor) once spoke of "Adolf Nazi", many times allusions are made in the vein of "Das hatten wir schon mal" (we've had that before), though this may also be attempts to invoke GodwinsLaw without invoking GodwinsLaw. Just ask any German how many synonyms for various Nazi terms they can come up with... There's 1933-45, the NS-time, the darkest era of German history, the third Reich, the thousand year Reich, the dozen year Reich and many other terms of various euphemistic or even humorous sound. Even seemingly innocuous words like "Volk" (people, cognate of "folk") were suspect during a time and oft-replaced by "Bevölkerung" (population).

* In ''WebOriginal/ElsewhereUniversity'', the Scottish Play actually takes a backseat compared to Theatre/AMidsummerNightsDream, which is referred to as "Their Play". It's not that it offends [[TheFairFolk the Gentry]] - as far as They're concerned [[EldritchAbomination the Royals]] are far too different for it to risk catching Their attention - but it's more the fact that, despite no one ever ''planning'' to put it on, it always ends up happening every few years. Everyone always tells the Theatre majors that it was their best play yet, but none of those involved ever seem to remember exactly what happened.
