* ArtisticLicensePharmacology: When Mordecai unwittingly sips Rocky's "space coffee", he immediately experiences dilated pupils and hallucinations. In real life, orally-administered hallucinogens take several minutes to absorb and produce hallucinations.

* ArtisticLicensePharmacology: When Mordecai unwittingly sips Rocky's "space coffee", he immediately experiences dilated pupils and hallucinations. In real life, orally-administered hallucinogens take several minutes to absorb and produce hallucinations. Also, Mordecai takes one sip of the "coffee" and immediately spits it out, meaning that he only swallowed a few drops of the liquid at best. Unless the liquid contained a ''massive'' amount of a hallucinogenic drug, Mordecai wouldn't have consumed enough of the active ingredient to experience effects.

** Asa Sweet is an overweight feline who wields a great deal of power in the St. Louis crime world. He's literally and figuratively a ''fat cat''.
** While inside Gracie's pool hall, Mordecai locates Gracie's hidden speakeasy when he noticed smoke escaping from behind a picture of two cabaret girls. The girls in the picture were literally and figuratively ''smoking hot''.

** Rocky reading labels on bottles in [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=39 this strip]] : no one in one's right mind would drink from a bottle labeled "disgusting brown gunk" or "rancid rat water". Either Rocky's French is indeed terrible and he's reading them wrong, or anyone who labeled these bottles couldn't care less.

** Rocky jokingly reading labels on whiskey bottles to Lackadaisy's patrons in [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=39 this strip]] : no one in one's right mind would drink from a bottle labeled the names he gives out are, respectively, "disgusting brown gunk" or "rancid rat water". Either Rocky's French Which, from the sound of it, is indeed terrible and he's reading them wrong, or anyone who labeled these bottles couldn't care less.what the booze tastes like.

* DesignatedHero: The Lackadaisy Gang gets this title, being the protagonists. But being, you know, bootleggers who stop at nothing to keep their struggling business afloat, they're not exactly paragons of all that is pure and good.

* TheAllegedCar: Rocky's car is in pretty rough shape, sporting several bullet holes, is prone to stalls due to a worn-out clutch, and the interior is a mess. Not surprising, considering Rocky's haphazard, reckless nature, and the fact that [[spoiler:the car doubles as his home.]]

* TheAllegedCar: Rocky's car (though technically it belongs to Lackadaisy, Rocky is the one primarily depicted driving it, [[spoiler:besides, he lives in it anyway]]) is in pretty rough shape, sporting several bullet holes, is prone to stalls due to a worn-out clutch, and the interior is a mess. Not surprising, considering Rocky's haphazard, reckless nature, and the fact that [[spoiler:the car doubles as his home.]]

* DysfunctionalFamily: Oh boy, where to begin...All is ''not'' well in the [=McMurray=]/Rickaby family. Even before Rocky took the blame for....[[NoodleIncident something]] so bad that it caused him to be kicked out of the only place he truly considered home, there were still plenty of issues besetting them. Rocky's mother died at some point from tuberculosis, and Rocky mentions that his father is "working on the railroad" which pretty much is another way of saying he's [[DisappearedDad out of the picture]] and is unable or doesn't care enough to return home and take care of his son, so Rocky's only real parental figure is his aunt Nina, a dour and oppressively devout Irish Catholic. On top of this is poor Calvin, Rocky's cousin and Nina's son, who, while at first seeming an earnest and timid kid just trying to get into the police force, has a rather...[[BewareTheNiceOnes violent]] side whenever he gets his hands on a [[GunNut gun,]] a trait that made him wash out of the police tryouts almost immediately. Still, despite all this, the family still seems to care about one another, with Nina allowing Rocky to hang out with Calvin and washing his clothes on request (if begrudgingly), showing that there is some silver lining behind all the trouble.
