Added DiffLines:

* EveryoneHasStandards: The premise of the episode is that even Springfield is too smart for the army.
* FailedASpotCheck: The over the top American Army ad is bad enough, but their use of the RUSSIAN song [[EpicFail "Arise, Russian People"]] is this. Even those that don't speak Russian would catch on to hearing the word "Russkie", but apparently, the Army is too dumb for that.


Added DiffLines:

** Jason Vorhees is one of the people the helicopter shoots in the terribly done army ad.


Added DiffLines:

* TotallyRadical: The army recruitment strategy is this for young teens and kids, although it fails to impress teens.

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: Homer tries to lure applicants to the army by offering them the chance to kill people. Anyone who did this in real life would be discharged on the spot.

** Cletus's Christmas card the previous December is a parody of one of the many infamous photos from the Abu Ghraib prison scandal.
** Homer leads a small remote controlled helicopter into a room full of explosives, locking it in. The chopper lights a match to see in the dark, and is then blown up. The screen that the Colonel is watching the entire thing on switches off the camera, and up comes the ThatsAllFolks VanityPlate from LooneyTunes.



* ThatsAllFolks: Seen at the end of the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' chase parody.
