Wily Wren

One day building inspectors declared that the ceiling of Christopher Wren's Windsor Town Hall was supported by an inadequate number of pillars.

Wren's solution? The architect obligingly installed four additional pillars -- none of which in fact touched the ceiling.

[The inspectors were fooled by the faux pillars, which can be seen to this day.]
