* AcidRefluxNightmare: Which leads to a row with his wife, and the next time he dreams of [[FreudWasRight Freud]] [[AnAesop who tells him]] not to eat heavy food before sleeping. Too late!

* FreudWasRight: Whenever he puts on his gloves, his wife say "Freud!", implying: He puts on gloves because he subconsciously plans to murder her, and doesn't want to leave evidence. However, when he ''doesn't'' put on his gloves, she also says "Freud!", because [[MortonsFork he only wants to prove subconsciously that he's beyond suspicion.]]

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Or Ephraim Kishon in this case, his popularity in Germany arguably outshone the one in any of his home countries (Hungary or Israel). Noteworthy especially considering the past between Jews and Germany when he became a renowned writer.

* DontCallMeSir: Kishon dreams of meeting the late Austrian emperor Franz Joseph, is struck with awe and stutters, searching for the correct title. The anointed one replies: "No need for this nonsense. Call me Franzl."

* DontCallMeSir: After visiting Austria, in which people are depicted as being completely obsessed with titles (with even the most common everyday nobody insisting on being called the "Dr. Prof. Duke Baron Von ____ The Numbered") Kishon dreams of meeting the late Austrian emperor Franz Joseph, is struck with awe and stutters, searching for the correct title. The anointed one replies: "No need for this nonsense. Call me Franzl."

* TheBigRottenApple: After talking disparagingly about NYC in an interview, Kishon becomes very popular with NY-haters from all over America, and makes a comedy tour based on this trope. Where he makes jokes like "The average Texan midget is three inches taller than the average New York giant!" Subverted at the end, when he develops a different attitude.

* TakeThatAudience: Somewhat indirectly in the story about the Red Lights of Amsterdam, where he tries to find the famous prostitute quarter but talking in a roundabout way to the locals literally gets him nowhere. In the end he gets desperate: "Where are the whores? Where?" "Kanalstraat."[[note]]The generic Dutch sounding name should be a hint Kishon is trolling.[[/note]] The stinger follows: "Now you know. Sometimes it pays reading an overlong story to the end." implying the reader had the same morbid curiosity.
