Heh. Yes indeed. :)
Which reminds me of one of the best quick-take jokes ever. In an episode of The Simpsons in 1998 as their plane takes off for a vacation in Japan...
Marge, trying to be encouraging: "Japan will be fun! You liked Rashomon."
Homer, still grumpy: "That's not how I remember it."
For the uninitiated, here's an article on Rashomon (after you've read it, come back and see why it's relevant here). For the seriously uninitiated, here's an article on some of the unusually scholarly jokes in The Simpsons. And for those who can't spell TV, here's an article on the longest running American primetime scripted television series.
