* '''Plotted A Good Waste''': Dan is the story's HateSink and he's supposed to be detestable but just funny enough that his presence in the work is tolerable (so as not to turn into TheScrappy). He's meant to be perceived as cruel and evil.

** The fall is hilarious at first, but then Bob doesn't get up. Dan is then racked with guilt over his prank while Bob spends several days in a coma, followed by months of recovery and physiotherapy.
** Alternative: Dan is a diagnosed Sociopath and is savvy enough to do actions when its comically appropriate. Soon Bob and others find this out and seek to have him institutionalized.

Added DiffLines:

** [[MonsterClown Dan]] invokes several comedic sociopathy tropes that both [[DissonantSerenity run counter to the setting's established tone]] and avert ToonPhysics. [[RealityEnsues The result]] is [[NightmareFuel horrifying]] and the [[DudeNotFunny failed comedy only makes it sicker]].


Added DiffLines:

** [[BreatherEpisode It's still hilarious]], giving the audience a brief release of tension [[MoodWhiplash before something even worse happens]].
