The creators are using the tactic of [[SelfDeprecation self-deprecatingly]] pointing out their own flaws themselves, thus depriving critics and opponents of their ammunition. The Website/TurkeyCityLexicon refers to this flavor of Lampshade Hanging as a "Signal from Fred", and reminds the author that if your characters are complaining about how stupid the latest plot development is, maybe your subconscious is trying to tell you something.

Once again, LampshadeHanging is when attention is drawn to something that is so strange it threatens to break the WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief. LeaningOnTheFourthWall is for things which make sense in the story but also has a second meaning outside of the story. '''Try not to get these confused'''
