I don't know if it's intentional or not, but I find it ironic that the description text doesn't actually say what the trope is, rather it gives a made up example. The list of alternative titles at the bottom of the page are a lot better at explaining what the trope is about, but not enough for me to feel confident giving an explanation in the main text.

Ah, that's an Example as a Thesis situation.

There are a couple of references to the "giving directions by where things used to be/by now-demolished landmarks" variant, which is not mentioned in the main text. Should it be re-added, or the examples changed?

just a random comment here, but that totally isn't the way to get to Scarborough fair. You have to go up Columbus Ravine and then turn left so you can cross coach park. Then you eat too many sickly hotdogs, lose £10 on rides assembled by people with facial tattoos, and are quite sick afterwards.
