Trivia

The title is based on the musical, and later movie, "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" by Stephen Sondheim and book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart (who later worked on the military sitcom M*A*S*H (1972)). The original Broadway production of "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" opened at the Alvin Theater on May 1, 1962, ran for 964 performances and won the 1963 Tony Awards for the Best Musical and Best Book.

Goofs

The reference to the British Prime Minister as "Sir" Winston is premature by as much as a decade. Churchill was invested as a Knight of the Garter on 14 June 1954 during his second premiership. He had been offered a spot in the elite organization when an opening appeared at war's end, but after the July 1945 parliamentary elections which brought Clement Atlee and a Labour government, Churchill declined King George VI's offer by saying that the British people had given him the "order of the boot".
