* CloudCuckooLand: The place Howard and Vince live in is supposed to be London, but instead of British currency they use euros, all people everywhere go on bizarre rants without police interference, animals attempt to get busy with humans and no one finds it odd, time travel is as simple as hailing a taxi, and strange, immortal Cockney green witches inhabit the streets.

* EveryoneIsBi: Minor characters often mistake Vince for a woman, hit on him, and never seem put off upon the revelation that he's a man. Howard's female crush in season one showed interest in Vince, and later ended up with a female panda (whom Vince had been involved with earlier). The Hitcher doesn't seem to care about the gender of the people he assaults. Vince shows [[AmbiguouslyBi tendencies]] of this, himself, and his brain cell definitely is. Howard's hero-worship obsessions (Simon McFarnaby, Jurgen Haabermaster) often have a shade of desperate unsubtle crush to them, and Howard himself is occasionally the target of amorous male characters-- Old Gregg is the most notable example. Bob Fossil explicitly has a crush on Dixon Bainbridge, pervs on both Vince and Howard on occasion, and apparently had a summer fling with Bollo, but also sometimes references having a wife to take care of.

* AttractiveBentGender: Vince proudly claims this status. His fashion sense is glam and androgynous, he wear makeup more often than not, he's frequently mistaken for a woman. Sometimes he's considered attractive, while other times he's called Howard's ugly wife. He doesn't seem to mind; quite the contrary, he takes pride in it.



* BitheWay: Vince's brain cell nonchalantly mentions it to Howard



* HeterosexualLifePartners: Howard and Vince. They're basically Bert and Ernie for the new millennium.



* TooKinkyToTorture: Bob Fossil.



* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist: Both Howard and Vince - as endearing as they are, Howard's stuffiness and Vince's shallowness are significant.
