* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Many people complain about how bad the episode is, but few know that [[UpToEleven it could have been worse]]: the original ending had Homer Simpson throwing ''pig's blood'' at the crowd while wailing, "Merry Christmas! God help me!" [[GainaxEnding Then, the scene flashes forward to the future, where an elderly Homer tells a group of future children that, because of him, Christmas is now celebrated with pig's blood being thrown at people.]]

** FridgeBrilliance: Probably race, since Carl is black and, for all of Burns' contempt for anyone who's not as rich as he is, viewers have never seen Mr. Burns be racist or sexist[[note]](barring that time he fired Marge for being married and lustfully growled at her when he said, "You don't have to sue me to get my pants off." Even then, he apologized after Homer demands so)[[/note]]. This was probably the writer's way of saying, "Mr. Burns may be a twisted, loveless billionaire, but he prefers to make everyone regardless of race and/or gender feel bad instead of just single out one."

* DesignatedHero: Homer is presented heroically for not taking Mr Burnís money to throw fish guts on orphan children. The problem with this is that he still willingly allowed Burns to take over the float anyway which isnít much better.
** Bart doesn't realise his 'cheating' is actually genuinely studying.
