** Simple. ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' simply doesn't sound threatening and appears to involve music in some way

* Does it seem to anyone else that Amend doesn't really like video games, at least in the early years? During the debates between Andy and Jason, Andy's refusal to buy a new system is presented as the reasonable and mature sentiment (even at the end of the arc in which Jason wants a Super NES, in which Andy seems to think that the new system is just a ploy by Nintendo to sell more consoles), and the only times she comes off as hypocritical is when she actually plays the games themselves. When arguing with Andy about why she doesn't want to buy a system, Jason points out that it's too late to avoid him getting addicted to video games. At the end of the "Mortal Kombat" arc, Jason makes a speech about how childhood's too short to be wasted playing video games- he doesn't mean it, but the fact that he believes that it's a display of maturity that will enable him to get the game back seems to suggest that he believes this on some level. Even as late as the "Christmas Carol" parody arc, Marcus calls his clinging to video game controllers "selfish," even if that's not the advice he has to offer Jason. While the Foxes, spcially Jason, often take their hobbies to excesses, this seems to b the only case in which Amend is commenting on the hobby itself.

** Given her reaction to some of Jason's video games ("Why isn't Franchise/DonkeyKong wearing any pants?!"), it's entirely possible that Jason has kept the true nature of the series from her, much like when he convinced his dad the the "M" on video games stood for "Mild". She has demonstrated in the past that she has very few overlapping interests with Jason, so it's not likely that she would read the books and is probably unaware that ''AGameOfThrones'' is based on them, if she watches that at all.

** For that matter, it's interesting Jason likes a show partly known for its strong sexual content at all, given Jason's age (he's 10) and his traditional strongly negative attitude toward anything remotely "mushy." Such a show would seem better liked by (16-year-old/girl-obsessed) Peter.

** Not just ASOIF. One strip implied that Peter and Paige rented ''Film/PulpFiction'' and let Jason and Marcus watch it, and another had Jason working on his website when Marcus came in with a huge stack of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' [=VHSs=] and asked Jason if he wanted them uploaded in any particular order. (Keep in mind that when Peter wanted to watch the same show on the [=MomVo=], it told him "Fat chance. You're going to watch ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nova_(TV_series) Nova]]''".)
