* "Lost in Myspace" features Strickland Propane getting [[WereStillRelevantDammit a MySpace]] [[DeaderThanDisco page for the company.]] While it comes across as dated for 2008 (and a sign that the show writers are trying to stay hip and relevant, even though it's years past that), many Southern and Western towns in the U.S. like Arlen in real life are a bit behind the times and would embrace trends like MySpace after everyone else has moved on to the next thing.

Also at the time fox owned MySpace.

* Hank clearly looks more like his mother than his father. So then why does his Japanese half-brother look like him when they have different mothers that don't look anything alike?

* A bit of Fridge ''Humor'': the magic/occult group that Bobby joins in one episode calls themselves "the Coven of Artemis." Artemis is the Greek goddess of the hunt, the moon, and wild places--pretty fitting for some group of wannabe druids. She's also the goddess of chastity, which is ''also'' fitting since, frankly, most of the guys in the group are probably virgins.

Added a section to fridge logic explaining why George W. Bush would campaign in Texas to answer a troper's question on the page.
Added DiffLines:
**Candidates actually do campaign in their home states fairly often. Sure, it's not as high profile as say Iowa, New Hampshire, or Florida but it makes for a good media appearance and is often done after going to fundraisers where candidates can easily draw in half a million dollars from the very people that got them elected to statewide office in the first place. So in 2000, George W. Bush being the former governor of Texas and all, it's very likely that he was simply fundraising and decided to make a nice media appearance to hype up his political base.

* How is it that Hank is aware of this one bank teller who's "in-between genders" [[PingPongNaivete yet is oblivious to Peggy's friend, Carolyn being a drag queen?]] Likely because the teller had a large build and masculine features combined with feminine dress, hair, and makeup while Carolyn was much smaller and had boyish/girlish features and therefore was less masculine looking while her biological male form can be construed as just a baby faced guy.

* The episode where Luanne and Peggy accidentally joined a sorority (really a front for a cult) ends with Hank and co. having a large barbecue to snap the recruits out of the weeks worth of brainwashing. [[KarmaHoudini And we didn't see the recruiter caught for her actions]]. What if the recruiter found a new place to set up shop? And what about the poor women that were sent to rot in some farm making jams?

* Dale Gribble's middle name is Alvin, meaning that he shares his [[ChipAndDale first name]] and [[AlvinAndTheChipmunks middle name]] with two different cartoon chimpmunks. This could be a StealthPun on why he's so nutty.

** It's possible he got the job later down the line. If this is the case, it explains why Hank and his buddies got out of trouble on many occasions. He did say something about being an electrician in an early episode.
