* SuckECheeses: Corny's Family-Style Restaurant in Book 7. Greg has a traumatic experience trying to rescue Manny from the indoor playground, and the serving staff and overall chaos easily makes up for the lack of animatronic robots and video games. Remember, anyone who comes in wearing a tie clearly isn't having ''fun'' and ''will'' get it snipped off.

Corny's Family-Style Restaurant in Book 7. ''The Third Wheel.''

** Old-Timey Ice Cream Parlor in ''Old School,'' where Rodrick gets a job dressing as the restaurant's creepy mascot, Old-Timey Tobias. He doesn't enjoy it.

**Greg explains in one book that his Dad isn't so stupid. Don't forget about Frew. But for the most part, unless Greg says they aren't stupid, most of the characters in the series can be interpreted as such.
