* At the Council of Constance (141223), one of the Cardinals had corrected an error of Emperor Sigismund's Latin grammar, to which he replied: "Ego sum rex romanis et supra grammaticam" ([[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem I am the king of the Romans and above grammar]])[[note]]Double irony, because it's also wrong, the correct Latin expression should have been "Ego sum rex Romanorum..." and so on. Then again, [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem refer to his comment]].[[/note]]. * Oscar Wilde was famously condemned as a homosexual after he sued the Marquess of Queensberry for libel. The Marquess had written on a calling card, "For Oscar Wilde, posing as a Somdomite." Wilde officially was responding to the fact that sodomy was a crime, but the odds are that Wilde, being Oscar freaking Wilde, was more offended by the misspelling than being called the equivalent of a fag.

* Was the cause of a mystery in one ''Encyclopedia Brown'' story. A young Lothario dictated a love note to his crush's little sister. Unfortunately, because he didn't tell her the ''punctuation'', she added it in herself, turning the romantic line "I can't stop thinking you're the prettiest girl in the world" into "I can't. Stop thinking you're the prettiest girl in the world." He gets a fist to the gut due to this.

* Naturally, shows up often in the ''ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum'' stories. Upon seeing a CaptainObvious title that promised a particularly gory mission, one agent said, "Is it bad that my first response to that was '[[ComicallyMissingThePoint That needs an Oxford comma]]'?"
