** Lisa plays a didgeridoo at a store. Traditionally, girls and women are not (and never were) allowed to play the didgeridoo (although they were permitted to dance to it), as doing so is considered taboo in Aboriginal culture. This sparked quite a bit of controversy, and it did not help that Lisa is a white (well, okay, mustard-yellow) American girl with no connection to that culture.

* DisproportionateRetribution: A conversed trope due to InUniverse ValuesDissonance. While Bart had committed an embarrassing crime, it was minor enough that just saying he was sorry (with a hefty amount of faked sincerity) was enough (and maybe pay the bills)... even Homer (with his strangling RunningGag) thinks that performing a LiteralAssKicking of Bart's rear with a jackboot so huge that it covers the wearer's knee is too much (and gets angry Ambassador Conover because he decided not to inform the Simpsons of what the Australians wanted to do, because otherwise they would not have agreed to come... and this was the offer he gave after he mentioned that the U.S. government was willing to ''toss Bart in Federal Prison'' to appease the Australians).

* AssInAmbassador: U.S. Ambassador Evan Conover. In order to appease Australia, he offers nothing but DisproportionateRetribution for Bart's actions -- the fact that the "public apology" option would include Bart getting his ass kicked was something he "helpfully" decided not to mention in order to make the Simpsons accept it.

* {{Eagleland}}: Present and accounted for, although spoofed all the same (to give examples: Bart moons the Australians with "Don't Tread On Me" written on his butt, Homer sings about missing his country when he sees the embassy's anti-coriolis effect machine, and every machine that has "Made In The U.S.A." written on it that appears is AwesomeButImpractical).

Added DiffLines:

* TheNotSoHarmlessPunishment: Punishment for phone bill fraud: go to Australia and apologize. The U.S. Government "helpfully" decided not to tell the Simpsons that it would also include a LiteralAssKicking with a jackboot ''that bigger than Bart''.
