**** Becoming a Texas Ranger requires 36 hours of college or 3 years of military service, plus 8 years in law enforcement (service as an MP does not count), and finally, a job at Texas Department of Public Safety with a rank of at least Trooper II. So Boomhauer would've had to have been a Ranger from the start. But it does seem like a last minute added detail, so any puzzling behavior is likely due to inconsistent writing.



I know that King of the Hill generally doesn't have much in the way of continuity, but how come he went from being fired (and selling steaks) to living in the school?

[[WMG: Pilot/Social Services]]

* (Moved here from Fridge Logic) How come Social Services were called when Bobby got a black eye but not when he was forced to live in a dog house?
** One, Bobby was living there voluntarily. Two, the social worker (Anthony Page) was sent back to Los Angeles after he screwed up the child abuse investigation by not talking to the Little League coach (who is friends with Page's boss) to see if the black eye was from an accident during the game[[note]]though Page was brought back on the episode "Junkie Business" as the social worker for the drug addict who tried to claim disability so he can work at Strickland Propane[[/note]].
** And three, Hank and Peggy repeatedly begged Bobby to move back into the house.

[[WMG: Why does Boomhauer stay friends with Hank?]]
* Hank repeatedly teases him and yells at him (Especially in the firefighting episode), at one point he even exiled Boomhauer from the group because Luanne was living with him and.... okay, this is just RuleOfThree.



* I think it isn't so much ''that'' Ashes are in the toilet as it is how ''much'' Ashes are flushed down the toilet ''at once''.

[[WMG: Hate crime against Irish?]]

Seriously how can anyone be able to get Peggy fired as a cheerleading coach for doing a hate crime against ''white'' people? White people are highly AcceptableTargets - and being Irish isn't good enough to get the label removed.

** It can also hit people pretty early. There was a 5th grader who was 5'11" - the height you would expect of a ''high school senior'' and his voice already started dropping. The next tallest person (me) at the time was 5' EVEN.



*** Or Bobby's girlfriend hooked up with the fourth kid from the first Straight Arrow episode.

** The doctors are also total [[WhatAnIdiot Idiots]]. '''You'd expect''': They would fit him for prosthetics. '''Instead''': They ''sew his feet to his knees''. He somehow survives this grafting (in 1940s technology).

In "''Serves Me Right for giving General George S Patton the Bathroom Key''" the bar owner is sick of veterans having their ashes flushed down the Patton toilet because it keeps clogging it. How would ''ashes'' clog a toilet? Wouldn't they just dissolve in the water?

Why's everyone so bent out of shape over someone who they think is racist? Arlen is a mid-to-small town in Texas with a population that seems to be about 90% white. I can understand the minister-lady (Because she's from like, what, Minnesota or Wisconsin, one of those two) but why everyone else? Towns like Arlen are, in RealLife, ''notoriously'' racist - so a lot of people would realistically legit not care whether or not somebody's racist. Are they just falling to PeerPressure?

* Because it's pretty mild, and more people who made those pages seemed to forget that those shows were ''[[AnimationAgeGhetto intended for adults]]'', thus a lot harder to get the crap past the Radar.

* My thought-- either the censors were squeamish about the word "rectal", or Bill's condition was such an advanced case that it defied logic or naming (how severe does such a condition have to be that it becomes fatal? The doctor may have been surprised Bill is still alive!))
