* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Kid when he plays ''VideoGame/SimCity''. Not surprising given the fact that he put barbed wire around the city so no-one can leave it, uses the bodies of citizens killed in riots to measure the radioactivity levels of the leaks from the town's nuclear reactor and raised taxes to 100% to pay for the police he needs to oppress the population. Not surprisingly, when asked what the biggest problem is, 100% of the people say "The mayor!"
** His own sister thinks this the most disturbing thing he's ever done in a video game, and asks him to go back to the UltraSuperDeathGoreFestChainsawer3000.
