* ExtracurricularEnthusiast: So-and-So explains that the "Priggity Prizom" is the name of this year's prom, and adds, with a deranged look, "I was on every committee ever." This fits well with the preppy overachiever stereotype she personifies.

* FourGirlEnsemble: Cheerleader is the pretty one, So-and-So is the smart one, What's Her Face is the tomboy, and The Ugly One is the naive one. The roles are blurred a bit, since What's Her Face tends to have more common sense than So-and-So.

* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: So-and-So's real name is Kristen, and the other three might be named Virginia, Joy, and Jennifer, but beyond that, their real names aren't even mentioned outside of the original email, and they're usually treated as if their nicknames were their only names: "Yes, Mrs. So-and-So... erson."

* OutOfCharacterMoment: While So-and-So and The Ugly One stayed relatively as they always were when Cheerleader died in Issue 9, What's Her Face took advantage of not having to be the sensible one anymore and [[TooDumbToLive ate a heaping bowl of "Staple Sauce".]] This, unsurprisingly, killed her.

** The first few Issues [[RandomEventsPlot are collections of random scenes with no real plot structure]]. Later issues, while still heavy on the randomness, have defined plots.



* RandomEventsPlot: It's always been there, but [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness the first two or three issues in particular]], which are much more focused on random and absurd humor rather than parody like the later ones are.
