* GoodIsNotNice

to:

* GoodIsNotNiceGoodIsNotNice: He dreams of a better society, but is not very tactful about it.
* HatesEveryoneEqually: Huey seems to hate everyone and everything. In the comics, he once tried to write a book about people he hated, seeing as he was so good at hating. But he didn't include UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden, because as he explains, "He's so EASY to hate. I'm trying to challenge the reader to expand his or her hate horizons." He did however, include Lucy from ''ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}}'', because of "[[RunningGag the whole pulling-the-football-away thing]]."



* NoSenseOfHumor: Beyond his sarcasm, he really doesn't seem to have an interest in comedy. A {{running gag}} in the comic has Caesar either [[http://hueyfreemanonlyspeaksthetruth.tumblr.com/image/61910144892 pointing it out]], [[http://hueyfreemanonlyspeaksthetruth.tumblr.com/image/53708237802 failing to tell him a joke]], or trying and failing to get him to say something funny. One mini-arc even has him trying to teach Huey to tell "[[YourMom your momma]]" jokes, with disastrous results.

** In "The Red Ball", Huey has no choice but to accept Wuncler's offer to become the captain of the Woodcrest kickball team and recruit other players, as Wuncler betted most of the real estate in Woodcrest (including the Freeman house) to his business rival Long-Dou from Wushung, China.
