** The scientist who lives in Skullcrusher Mountain is downright friendly to his kidnapped "girlfriend", he just has no idea how to go about it. Scarface is likewise "a sweetheart".



* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: the eponymous Creepy Doll's crimes against the narrator include sleeping in the narrator's bed, moving around when the narrator isn't looking, and ... asking if he really needs that much honey in his tea.
* ArtisticLicenseHistory: played with in "Ikea": the narrator things Sweden was founded by [[UsefulNotes/NorseMythology Thor]], and that Ikea was one of the first things to be created in the country, along with Vikings and longboats.



* FauxAffablyEvil: the scientist in "Skullcrusher Mountain" has his affable facade slip when reminds the girl that "this mountain is covered with wolves".

Added DiffLines:

* UnreliableNarrator: implied in "Creepy Doll", when the last verse reveals that "the bag of big-city money" is still sitting in the house. Was the narrator actually plagued by a creepy talking doll, or was he just nuts?

** Not to mention the half-pony, half-monkey monster from "Skullcrusher Mountain". The only descriptions we get of it are "I used too many monkeys" and "I ruined a pony", and judging by the fact that the unnamed love interest won't stop screaming, it's probably exactly as horrific as it sounds.
