Tropes:
* BigApplesauce
* DrinkOrder: Jameson's.
** The Vodka [=McGovern=]: Vodka, the juice of a freshly squeezed orange, topped with soda water.
* DualMeaningChorus: In the song "We Reserve The Right To Refuse Service To You," the narrator is denied entrance to a cafe with the title words, as he looks like a Communist and a Jew.
** In the next verse, the rabbi at the synagogue tells him that because he doesn't have a ticket and tie, "We reserve the right to refuse services to you."
** The next verse takes a more serious anti-war tone as the narrator wishes he could refuse military service to U.S. troops in South Asia.
** Finally, the narrator fears that when he tries to get into heaven, he'll be told, "Our quota's filled for this year / On singing Texas Jews, / We reserve the right to refuse service to you."
** The same goes for "They Ain't Makin' Jews Like Jesus Anymore", which starts off with an anti-semite accosting Kinky in a bar with the title phrase, and ends with Kinky punching him out with the words
-->They ain't makin' Jews like Jesus anymore
-->We don't turn the other cheek like we done before
-->You could hear that honky holler as he hit the hardwood floor
-->Lord, they ain't makin' Jews like Jesus anymore!
* FiveManBand: The Kinkster, [=McGovern=], Rambam, Ratso, and Stephanie [=DuPont=].
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: Friedman smokes cigars. Often.
* IrishmanAndAJew: Kinky and [=McGovern=]
* OurProductSucks: Friedman's campaign slogans for his 2006 campaign for Texas governor included "Why The Hell Not?" and "How Hard Could It Be?"
* RefugeInAudacity: In the mid-90s, he was invited to the White House and handed a Cuban cigar to BillClinton right in front of a bunch of reporters with the words "Don't think of it as supporting their economy, think of it as burning their crops."
* ThirdPersonPerson: Friedman is known for referring to himself in the third person, though it's tongue-in-cheek on his part.
