I'm told that's not quite it either. Not a lot of people know it, but Figaro 
is the name of the childhood pet cat of a certain Megan (though it's likely 
she named it after the one from Pinocchio), who has a twin sister you may wish 
to guess the name of, and an uncle who's somewhat famous around these parts.
