* {{Jerkass}}: Most of the "behind the scenes" sketches portray Mark Webb as one, like in one instance guilt-tripping David into wearing a shirt that makes him look gay, simply to claim he's not homophobic after making some homophobic remarks some time before, and bluntly dismissing an upset Mitchell's concerns that this would ruin any future attempts at romance.

* GoMadFromTheRevelation: The fine people at "[=TheHorrorTheHorror.Com=]" help those with anxiety problems by consolidating all their various worries into one twenty-four hour burst of existential terror.



* InsistentTerminology: The Swedish euthanasia clinic workers don't see it as committing assisted suicide, they see it as "quitting while you're ahead".
