Examples you could use in order to better explain your programming language inheritance and OOP syntax instead of using cars, animals, and shapes.
  • Cats, as defined by how important they were as plot devices (the cat from The Matrix would inherit from ImportantCat, whereas the cat from Boondock Saints would inherit from DeadCat)
  • Batman (primarily as a way to describe situations in which a child has no parents)
  • Presidents of the United States (Nixon vs Cheney vs Garfield)
  • Zombies (Walking Dead vs World War Z vs Zombieland)
  • Zombie Presidents of the United States
  • Children in television shows, as grouped by whether they actually did cause their parents' separation
  • Radioactive attack squirrels bent on global hegemony, beamed down to Earth from the mirror universe USS Enterprise
  • George Carlins by decade
  • Cocaine
  • Metropolises, cities, towns, villages, and Detroits
