* HiddenDepths: Barney Gumble, town drunk extreme, is capable of making a tear-jerking and highly artistic documentary of the misery his life has become. [[HypocriticalHumor When he discovers that the first prize is a truckful of Duff beer, he begs for it to be given to him intravenously]].


Added DiffLines:

** Barney knows perfectly well that he's a hopeless alcoholic and creates a documentary that acknowledges it, and he swears on stage on his acceptance speech that he will quit drinking. When he discovers that the first prize is a literal truckful of Duff beer, he yells for it to be given to him intravenously.

** Skinner once said that the Earth revolves around the Sun (regular school science). He's almost burnt at the stake for it (and Heaven only knows what Grandpa Simpson did to the man who took a picture of the event, thinking that he had stolen his soul).

Added DiffLines:

* EvenEvilHasStandards: At the beginning of the episode, Major Quimby explains how backwards the town is, and he's utterly disgusted (although what breaks the camel's back for him is that a ''porn film award'' has backed down from taking place on Springfield).


Added DiffLines:

* PersecutedIntellectuals: While Major Quimby explains how bad the city of Springfield has become, he puts a recording of a time when Principal Skinner was almost burnt at the stake for the "sacrilegious crime" of saying that the Earth goes around the Sun.

* CausticCritic[=/=]CompassionateCritic: Jay Sherman. The former when criticizing big budget movies as usual, and when seeing some of the independent films. ("This is not America's funniest home videos", after watching the movie about Moleman getting hit in the groin). However, he honestly enjoyed Barney's moving film about his alcoholism, and was annoyed when Homer and two other judges voted for Moleman, and Burns' movie respectively.
