Added DiffLines:

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: So far, this is the only game in the franchise to receive an E rating, despite the fact that the only thing really separating it from the other LighterAndSofter games in the series as far as kid friendliness goes is loosely adhering to GoshDangItToHeck. As such, there's plenty of content that could be considered objectionable for a game that's apparently meant for all ages.
** As always, the use and glorification of alcohol is an integral part of the game's setting, and is even used in a number of puzzles.
** The words "Hell" and "damn" are both used without restraint, though they are meant to be literal (Hell as in the place, damn as in actual damnation) in all cases.
** Two of the exchanges that are used during this game's insult battle are very transparent, very raunchy [[StealthInsult Stealth Insults]].
