    • Especially considering the nature of the series — invoking that trope would be a little uncomfortable at best, and the target audience is most likely unfamiliar with that aspect of the mythological archetype.

  • Presumably a unicorn that did roll over for Virgin Power wouldn't have required grilling in the first place.
