* AdamWesting: StephenHawking plays himself as an egotistical, handicapped, badass genius with a souped-up wheelchair.

* SpecialGuest: StephenHawking, whose appearance on this show (and later ''Futurama'') has made him more famous than his studies. How ironic, considering the episode makes fun of intellectualism vs. anti-intellectualism and how people seem to love lowbrow entertainment more than highbrow entertainment.

* WithUsOrAgainstUs: In the climax, it's the smart people (MENSA and StephenHawking) vs. the dumb people, who make up the majority of Springfield. During the riot, Carl says, "Let's make litter out of these literati!" Lenny suspiciously remarks, "That's too clever, you're one of ''them''!" and punches him.

* TakeThat: Professor Frink's refers to the phenomenon of an intellectual joke being funny to one person out of a million as "The DennisMiller Ratio."

* AdamWesting: StephenHawking plays himself as an egotistical, handicapped, badass genius with a souped-up wheelchair. Note while he gives his I.Q as 280, in real-life tests have put Hawking at 160, still gifted, at the same level as Einstein and moreso than the majority of people in real life.

* ArtisticLicense: The "real" Stephen Hawking couldn't "talk" as fast as he does here if his life depended on it; it takes him about five minutes or so to input a complete sentence into his synthesizer.

While he gives his I.Q as 280, in real-life tests have put Hawking at 160 which is below Comic-Book Guy's (self-professed) I.Q, though Hawking is still gifted at the same level as Einstein and moreso than the majority of people in real life.

* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: Rainier Wolfcastle dubs himself the gross-out contest's winner "for being seen with you freaks." Naturally, the participants don't take this well, and it helps spark the riot.

* {{Jerkass}}: Marge to Lisa during the stupidity contest. Lisa is clearly unhappy being there, and when Marge asks if anyone forced her to go, Lisa reminds Marge that she did. Marge then tells her no one's stopping her from leaving, but the second Lisa gets up Marge grabs her and says she's not going anyway.

* BaitAndSwitch: Barney at the gross-out contest. He goes onstage, drinks a whole six-pack of Duff, and burps. The audience cheers and he gets scored pretty high for it, but that wasn't what he wanted to do. He was apparently going to juggle chickens, before getting shooed offstage. Ironically, he probably got a better score than if he ''had'' juggled chickens.
