An Adendum

It has been pointed out to me that the reference in The Adams Family to Medea may well have been a reference, and, in fact, now that it's been pointed out, I believe it is quite likely that it was a reference, to the Medea of Greek literature, who killed her children. This makes the joke significantly funnier in that respect. Having said that, the rest of the dissection still stands.
