* {{Jerkass}}: You can see why some consider season nine a turning point in Homer's characterization (and a reason behind the show's decline, besides the fact that the stories were getting more and more unrealistic and derivative). He [[DisproportionateRetribution cuts off his family's garbage service over a petty argument]] and runs for sanitation commissioner rather than apologize. Once he gets elected, he renders the entire town uninhabitable in a matter of months.

He also continuously make Ray's life a living hell by tossing lies (bringing children to his gingerbread house) and belittling him at every opportunity. When Homer wins, he laughs it all off to a fuming Ray that they were all lies and that they can keep being friends.

* GodzillaThreshold: Plan B, which the mayor speaks of in an ominous tone. There's so much garbage springing up from the ground in Springfield, that the only option to save the city is to move it five miles away.

* CryingIndian: Parodied. The Crying Indian is seen and does cry when he sees a can carelessly thrown at his feet, but another Indian appears next to him and tells him not to turn around and see the true horror that pollution has wrought on [[spoiler:the former location of]] Springfield. Unfortunately, the Crying Indian does turn around and screams, and the second one lectures, "I ''told'' you not to turn around."

* AbandonedMine: Homer's solution for solving the Springfield Sanitation Department's budget crisis is to allow other major U.S. cities to dump their unwanted garbage in one (located on the outskirts of the city) in exchange for money. [[spoiler: The plan backfires when the garbage starts erupting from the ground all over the town.]]

** In the opening scene, a saleswoman suggest that the proposed new holiday should be something religious, saying, "We had great penetration last spring with Christmas 2!" Christmas 2 was a holiday (falling on March 25) created by B.Z. to cash in on the success of Patch's Puce Pops in ''Film/SantaClausTheMovie''

* TakeThat: To the gift/greeting card industry for creating "Love Day" purely to boost revenue. Love Day bears a marked resemblance to Sweetest Day, a Valentine's Day-like manufactured holiday created in Cleveland in 1922.

In this, the 200th episode, Homer's {{jerkass}} antics gets the family's garbage collection cut off, and Marge writes an apology to the garbagemen on Homer's behalf. Incensed that Marge would do something like this, Homer takes on sanitation commissioner Ray Patterson (voiced by comedian, actor, and one of ''SaturdayNightLive'''s most frequent and memorable hosts, Creator/SteveMartin) in an upcoming election and wins his seat with a campaign that promises more than it can deliver.

* XMustNotWin: Shown to quite a detrimental level, since Homer's campaign is based largely on a spite war towards Patterson, he proves completely incompetent when he finally gets the job.
