* EveryoneHasStandards: Ned Flanders is, simply speaking, one of the strongest examples of MoralGuardians on the show, and a man who has enforced morally wholesome and "safe" entertainment to his children to the point that other people think there's something wrong with them. Even ''he'' thinks that the mural's design is TastesLikeDiabetes overkill.

* InstantlyProvenWrong: Jack assures Marge that he wasn't the one that set the mural on fire (and he's convincing enough that Marge tries to buy him time to run away--and at the time the audience may also believe him). The ten seconds she bought him were all that he needed for him to set ''Skinner's car'' on fire.

* TheBore: More evidence that Skinner aims to take anything fun out of being in school because he has no idea of what interests kids--he gets on Jack's case because he dislikes the original (that has both PantheraAwesome and BrawnHilda, and makes everybody else who sees it feel ecstatic) and he says it's because it's "too exciting and improper" for a school (his own suggestion definitely would fit better on a kindergarden, if one feels generous), he switches food around in the weekly lunch plan because he thinks kids are getting too excited when they get it on Thursdays ''and'' he completely kills a joke about the Superintendent on the unveiling because he says it wrongly and tries to recover by explaining it.



* {{Hypocrite}}: Skinner. On top of everything else he does during the episode that he refuses to take any faults about, he casually mentions that Jack's attempt to burn the school would have failed ''because it's full of asbestos''.

* NeverMyFault: When the overly cutesy school mural is met with an overwhelmingly negative reception, Skinner pins the blame entirely on Jack, even though he was the one who forced Jack to paint it in the first place (and over the more heroic-looking mural he made first).

He also puts the blame on his botched joke on the unveiling act on the writer (the writer, that is on the crowd and is a professional, just says that a better comedian would have salvaged it).
