** Martin's scheme with the fake casino is mentioned by him to have been based on an episode of ''Series/SavedByTheBell'' (probably a fictional one). Of course, the fact that ''the exact same thing'' (people rioting when it's discovered that they didn't really win anything) happened on the ''Saved by the Bell'' episode didn't clued Martin about how the adults would react...

* MisBlamed: Everyone blames Skinner for the budget cutbacks because he's the one who has to make them, ignoring the schools ridiculously low budget, the goverments constant budget cuts and the adults of Springfield refusing even minor tax increases to actually keep the school running properly.

* ComicalOverreacting[=/=]DisproportionateRetribution: All the adults didn't take it well when Martin Prince revealed that the school casino was fake. To make it worse, Marin was forced to resign as class president while Skinner had to deal with the rental company whose equipment the adults trashed.

* CharityBall: The "casino" version (GoneHorriblyWrong because none of the adults cared to read the ads Martin had sent out well in advance and didn't know the casino didn't hand out money prizes--and [[{{Jerkass}} their reaction to finding this out (thanks to Homer getting angry when he found out)]] [[PowderKegCrowd was to erupt into a riot and smash everything]]) is what starts the whole plot.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: On a similar vein to GradeSchoolCEO being unrealistic, there is no real way whatsoever that Skinner's plan of using Lisa as the FallGuy for his corner cutting would fly in real life-school presidents ''cannot'' do anything regarding the manipulation of school funding (especially the removal of classes). Of course, [[CrapsackWorld Springfield]] runs on the RuleOfFunny.
