* TrueArtIsAngsty: [[invoked]] Uh-huh! Stephan Pastis knows it! One set of episodes makes a {{Parody}} out of ''MisterRogersNeighborhood'', with Rat as Mister Rogers. First the trolley to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe comes in, carrying the beer bottles that Rat likes so much. Then at the NOMB, Rat witnesses a Muslim terrorist puppet named Jihad Jerry pump King Friday XIII full of lead, and then tell Queen Sara Saturday to wear a burka, despite Rat urging Jerry to be as democratic as possible. Finally, Rat appears wearing a burka himself, explaining that JJ has taken over the show, but things will stay the same...only for a mooing camel to appear in place of the trolley, which Rat makes sell oil at ridiculous prices. Pastis is just that kind of guy!

** Averted once; Rat was playing the role of a pied piper, luring stupid people out to a lake to drown them. Obviously, the crocs were dumb enough to do this, but once Rat began to gloat about it, one of the crocs angrily pointed out "We can sweem."

* ExpressLaneLimit: [[http://www.gocomics.com/pearlsbeforeswine/2004/10/17 Taken to its logical conclusion]] when Rat flips out on a customer for coming through the express lane with a box of 575 corn flakes.
-->'''Pig:''' And the manager ''fired'' you?\\
'''Rat:''' Yeah, and I was like, "Duuude, I did ''not'' write the rules", and he's like, "Dude, that is ''not'' how the 'ten items or less' lane works."
