* ExecutiveMeddling: Mike Snider revealed in his now-defunct blog that his first approved piece for the magazine, a parody of "A More Humane Mikado", was greatly altered by the editors, who felt that ''Theatre/TheMikado'' would be too unfamiliar to readers. As a result, the parody barely scanned to the song at all.

While it was done in order to not infringe on the character's image, [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a5/LB%26SCR_E2_class.jpg this is actually how a real life Billington E2 tank engine's running plate is built.]]
