* SpannerInTheWorks: Krusty Burger's Olympic promotion centres around printing game cards for different events. If America wins a gold medal in the event printed on the game card, participants can redeem the card for a free Krusty Burger. However, the cards are rigged in that they'e only for events that Communists never lose in. Krusty is initially happy with the idea...at least until he learns that the Soviets have decided to boycott the games. His accountant then calculates that Krusty himself personally stands to lose '''$44 million dollars''' on the promotion.

* AluminumChristmasTrees: Modern audiences (at least the ones who weren't around when it really happened) might not realize that the Krusty Burger Olympic promotion and the subsequent backfiring due to the Soviet boycotting of the Games ''was'' based on a real UsefulNotes/McDonalds promotion that had the same results.

* MortonsFork: Related to the above point; you can tell [[MonsterClown a clown is scary]] when it makes a little kid ''not'' want to go home.
-->'''Bart''': ''(already homesick and not getting on well with the IncrediblyLameFun-having Flanders kids)'' I want to go home. ''(looks out the window and sees the clown bed; becomes terrified)'' No I don't!

* OffModel: Sideshow Bob has Sideshow Mel's hair color (greenish-blue) in the commercial for the Krusty Burger giveaway. While it can be handwaved that it's a wig or he had to dye his hair for the show, it actually contradicts with the season one episodes (up until "Krusty Gets Busted") where Sideshow Bob had his own hair (red) and the writers on the DVD commentary point out that Sideshow Bob's hair being greenish-blue instead of red was a coloring mistake.

* ExactWords: Krusty Burger is the "official ''meat-flavored sandwich''" of the Olympics. Note that there's nothing in there about it actually being made of meat.
