** Famous circus animals? Just Jumbo the Elephant (and when it comes to ''fictional'' circus animals, Mrs. Jumbo and Disney/{{Dumbo}}). Old Joe the Dromedary is only known indirectly, as the model for the camel on the Camel Cigarettes pack...and eventually for the most controversial advertising mascot in history, Joe Camel.

And now that most circuses have phased out animal acts, probably the only place kids today can be expected to see them is on a Barnum's Animals cookie box.

** Clowns? Pretty much just Emmett Kelly. (Bozo, Clarabelle, etc. don't count because they weren't actually circus clowns.)

** Magicians? Harry Houdini (never mind that he was an escape artist, not a magician). Maybe David Copperfield and Siegfried and Roy if you're lucky.
* Did Creator/OscarWilde write more plays than ''TheImportanceOfBeingEarnest''? He did, and some are as hilarious as this one, and he also wrote a tragedy in one act, but it's just that Earnest is such a funny and MeaningfulName...
* There are only three French playwrights : Corneille, Racine and Molière - who all lived in the same century. Also, Corneille only ever wrote ''Le Cid'' ; never mind that it is fairly atypical compared to the rest of his work.

** ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'': "Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?", in which case 'wherefore' will be taken to mean 'where'.

** ''Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet'': "Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?", in which case 'wherefore' will be taken (mis)taken to mean 'where'.'where' and not 'why'. Don't assume the audience knows about the DownerEnding, though.
