I'm fine with the separation between serious and humorous examples.
That said... I don't get the need for Bear Trap Bed
. It seems like an unnecessary subtrope of Murphy's Bed
, just one specific variant that isn't sufficiently distinct in any practical sense.
I can REALLY understand confusion about Murphy's Bed
. The name makes no sense without knowledge of Murphy's Law
, which isn't linked anywhere on the page, and the quote has nothing to do with Murphy's Bed
, but everything to do with a Murphy Bed. Personally, I think it should be changed to Deadly Bed
or some much name. Being too close to an existing phrase (but unrelated to it) is just confusing.
