The comic is centered around family man Patrick a.k.a. Pondus and his best friend, former layabout Joachim "Jokke" Jacobsen. They both obsess about [[TheFACup the English football league]], classic rock (especially the [[Music/{{ACDC}} hard]] [[{{KISS}} kind]]) and beer. In the early years, the strip usually centered around Pondus' and Jokke's bar discussions as well as Jokke's adventures in womanizing (which, half the time, [[AmusingInjuries got him smashed to a pulp]] by [[NightmareFuel grotesquely]] [[{{gonk}} ugly women]], and the other half, [[TheCasanova got him in bed with them]]). But ever since Jokke got into a steady job and [[spoiler: (for a while)]] a steady relationship, the strip is becoming more and more [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters ensemble-oriented]].

* NamesTheSame: PlayedForLaughs when Pondus gave Jocke a subtle DamnedByFaintPraise moment because of his lousy guitar skills (and horrible singing). Pondus claimed he was the spitting image of ''Paul Stanley'' (the lead singer of Music/{{Kiss}}). Øverli intervened himself to explain that Pondus actually had referred to "Paul Stanley, the pig farmer from Idaho" - apparently a devil in the pig raising business, but with zero musical skills.

** He also makes it pretty darn clear that he doesn't like {{U2}}. [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark Not to the point where Bono is revealed to literally be the world's greatest turd]], but still.

Added DiffLines:

* DeFictionalization: In-universe. The names Tito and Balthazar first appeared when Kevin pulled a prank on his father during a telephone call. Pondus was absent, and his son claimed that he was in the bath with "Tito and Balthazar". Later on, the two homosexuals actually moved in next door.

* InformedDeformity: Hugo is sometimes described as being particularly ugly, but he really doesn't look much different from the other males in the comic (except that he's a little fatter).

* BannedInChina: In a way. The strip has been found "unfit" for an American audience. The "ugly ladies" are a mite ''too'' ugly.

* TheBeautifulGame: The most SeriousBusiness of them all. On more than one occasion, Pondus has seriously questioned why any other sports than football even exists.
