* In one ''ECComics'' story, a bigamist has a wife who bowls competitively, and another who golfs on a tournament level. He sends each of them a pair of shoes for their sport, but he puts them in the wrong boxes, so the bowling wife gets the golfing shoes and vice versa. He might have been able to laugh this off, if they [[ContrivedCoincidence hadn't been sharing a hotel room due to both reservations being made under his name]].
