I love the piece of trivia, but I agree with triviawayne. Typically, FJ gives you the more obscure fact(s) and makes you connect the dots to something the audience is more likely to have heard of. For instance:
Spoiler
The Pushkin Museum holds the "Red Vineyards near Arles", the only painting this artist ever sold during his lifetime.

When you write it that way, it's a pretty solid clue. It has the Arles TOM, it has Pushkin to distract and punish you if you don't think about the whole clue, and it's a fun fact. It's also much more gettable for the at-home audience, which is a key part of the equation. People like to know the answers and feel good about it. There's a reason nobody tunes in to watch the NAQT championships...

Just my 2 cents....

Here's a real one from 1990 (episode 1245) that seems to have a pretty massive loophole:

ANCIENT TIMES: This city didn't exist at the time of the Trojan War so Paris couldn't have abducted Helen from there

They obviously wanted Sparta, but there are countless answers that technically fit the clue. For example: NYC, Sydney, Juneau, Toronto, and the list goes on and on and on...

Given that there is little evidence the Trojan War even happened...
