* WritersCannotDoMath: The ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}'' parody, "Ghost-Dusters," (''MAD'' #253) featured the characters explaining the $10,000 charge for capturing the parody's equivalent of Slimer. The individual prices actually totaled $11,000. A reader wrote in and the magazine had to admit its error.

* SingleMomStripper: One strip showed two teenage boys looking at porn online, and one of them says, "Isn't that your mom?" The other boy thinks his friend is joking, until he realizes it ''is'' his mom. He runs home and asks her how could she do such a thing; she smirks and says "I made enough money in ten minutes to afford one of those Sega Dreamcasts you've been bitching about." The boy's attitude changes ''quickly'' and he offers to do chores around the house to let her keep working.

** ''Superduperman'' mocks the TwoPersonLoveTriangle by insisting that "Nice Guy" obsession with being loved for their "true selves" is inherently pathetic. As Lois Pain tells Clark Bent when he finally reveals his identity, "Once a creep, always a creep."
