* AmbiguousSyntax: In Episode 153, while discussing Image's upcoming ''Shirtless Bear Fighter'', they get into a riff about whether it's the bear or the fighter who's shirtless, and if the former, does this mean the bear isn't ''normally'' shirtless? Because if the Shirtless Bear Fighter is going to fight Franchise/WinnieThePooh, WesternAnimation/TheHairBearBunch and ''WesternAnimation/{{Talespin}}'' Balloo, then he's a ''dick''.

* HypocriticalHumor: In the middle of their 2012 awards episode - in which the winners are announced by Belfast Nick Lowe, Australian GailSimone, Glaswegian Jim Lee, Received Pronunciation Creator/BrianMichaelBendis, Midlands ([[OohMeAccentsSlipping mostly]]) Creator/GeoffJohns, Cockney Frank Cho (of course), [[UpToEleven French]] Creator/AlanMoore, and Welsh Creator/StanLee - Al criticises the way Bendis writes [[Comicbook/XMen Emma Frost]], because you can't just take someone with an established accent and give them another accent at random.

* BritishAccents: They're both Scottish. There's also Al's impression of Cockney Frank Cho, which has branched out into giving other American comic creators arbitrary regional accents. (Making Cho a cockney wasn't entirely arbitrary; it drives home the [[MostCommonSuperpower main theme]] of his work by making him sound like a stereotyped sleazy PageThreeStunna photographer.)

* TheFireflyEffect: They often comment on the tendency for no-one to buy less conventional DC and Marvel books, even when they're highly acclaimed and recommended, because they're only going to get cancelled, because no-one buys the less conventional books...

* StraightManAndWiseGuy: While Paul makes jokes, there's a tendency for Al to go off on bizarre flights of fancy and Paul to stoically wait for him to finish and say something like "Okay. Back in the real world..."

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Parodied. At the end of one podcast, Al announced that ''TOHOTOH'' was being retired and replaced with a new, totally original concept ... which turned out to be ''Who's Who in Who's Who in the DCUniverse''.

* WordSaladTitle: "House to Astonish" looks like the names of two comics were dropped in a blender. Which is precisely the case: it comes from a proposed ComicBook/AmalgamUniverse title by Creator/MarkWaid that would have combined ''ComicBook/HouseOfMystery'' and ''TalesToAstonish''.
