* TheUnseen: The only thing we see of Big Louie is is right hand, which turns out to be a prop hand. He later twists it off and puts a meat cleaver in its place.[[note]]In the commentary, Al mentioned wanting a reveal scene where it turned out Big Louie was really Creator/MervGriffin.[[/note]]


Added DiffLines:

* UngratefulBastard: When George delivers to Channel 8 a package intended for R.J. Fletcher that ended up at his own station by mistake, Fletcher threatens to have the law on him for tampering with another person's mail, [[JerkassHasAPoint which he rightly points out is a federal offense]].

* CandidCameraPrank: One of the many parody shows mentioned in the movie, and an especially mean-spirited one. The short clip we see from the show is of the fat cameraman [[CrossesTheLineTwice tripping an old lady]] as she walks out of a store.

** A large, fat, very mean woman can toss two grown men 100 or so yards easily, karate students can crash though windows and fall 2 stories with no injury, and a very weird shop teacher treats a severed thumb and serious blood loss like a very mild annoyance.

** A large, fat, very mean woman can toss two grown men 100 or so yards easily, karate students can crash though windows and fall 2 stories with no injury, and a very weird shop teacher treats a severed thumb and serious blood loss like a very mild annoyance. Though in the film's defense, no one else treats that last bit as casually as the victim does.
