* TaxonomicTermConfusion: There is an appearance by "six different phyla of giant insects". Insects, whatever their size, are a single ''class'' of phylum Arthropoda -- and you would think Harvard students would know that. On the other hand, [[HardOnSoftScience Harvard writing students.]]

* SaidBookism: PlayedForLaughs, like pretty much everything else. -->Spam gagged, and his arm went limp. "Die," he suggested.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: When it was originally written in 1969, this book was just a straightforward parody with no particular theme, full of modern pop culture references (much like the parody-movies of today); but to modern readers, "Bored of the Rings" could easily be described as "a '60s retelling of 'Lord of the Rings.'"

* MrAltDisney: Serutan, with his Dicky Dragon amusement park and merchandise. At one point in the past, Goodgulf was his business partner, but their relationship soured due to Serutan becoming more greedy (at least, [[UnreliableExpositor according to Goodgulf]]).
