Greyfriars Churchyard in Edinburgh is a favourite place for prostitutes to take their clients*, hence the famous street cry "Dae ye fancy some Greyfriars Boaby?" During a visit to the city in 1961 Walt Disney overheard this cry and asked his guide what it meant. Not wanting to upset the man who had given the world such family classics as Snow White and Sleeping Beauty (Disney's rabid anti-Semitism was not common knowledge at this time) his quick-thinking guide came up, on the spot, with a heartwarming tale of a faithful dog refusing to leave its master's grave. Disney loved the story and turned it into a film, and ever since then Edinburgh Council has had to pretend it's a true story dating back to the 19th century. The statue at the end of George IV Bridge was secretly installed one night and the public were informed that it had been, er, away for cleaning.

 

*Apparently.
