Just go with it.[[note]]For the record, there's no particular significance to the year 1023 in RealLife. The special presumably selected it for the sake of the "ten-to-three" pun.[[/note]]

* SapientCetaceans: Big Ben, a whale with a giant clock on his tail, sent by Father Time to help Rudolph.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: Gee, where even to begin? Dinosaurs are included in the year one million BC, 1023 has the aesthetics of TheHighMiddleAges instead of TheLowMiddleAges, and the Americans of 1776 hold Fourth of July parades every day when they should still be fighting their war for independence.[[note]]If you really want to nitpick the 1776 island, you could also point out that the Declaration of Independence was actually signed on July 2nd and that the Betsy Ross flag wasn't adopted until 1777.[[/note]] Oh, and 4,000 BC predates Egyptian civilization, let alone the Pyramids. Really, it would be easier to point the things that ''were'' historically accurate.

* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: This is how Sir 1023 talks. Being from the early 11th century, he should be speaking Old English, but if we raise that point, he'd have to question [[EternalEnglish how O.M. knows English at all]].
