* OverlyPrepreparedGag: He once flew nearly 8,000 miles to UsefulNotes/{{Dubai}}...just to verify that his site is {{banned|InChina}}, litter printouts of his website around the city to taunt the ban, and use a view of the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building at the time, to [[VisualPun make the tower look like it's]] [[GagPenis coming out from between his legs]].

* MurderousThighs: He claimed a benefit of bicycling was the ability to use his leg to crack the skulls of two kids at once.



* RiceBurner: He has a field day with them in [[http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=civic this article]]. He then points out that even if one does invest in an actual performance car rather than needless decorations for an economy car, the illegality of driving over 200 miles per hour on public roads [[ShaggyDogStory ultimately renders performance cars worthless too]]. May be HypocriticalHumor, as his own car, as shown in his hate mail section, is as "pimped out" as the wannabe-sports cars he rants about.

May be HypocriticalHumor, as He mocked their responses of accusing him of driving a lame car by posting a heavily photoshopped, pimped-out economy car. Of course, a lot of people actually believed that was his own car, as shown in his hate mail section, is as "pimped out" as the wannabe-sports cars he rants about.real car and accused him of being a hypocrite.

* NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: ''So'' averted. After the death of Creator/ChristopherReeve, Maddox updated his article about Reeve... by changing the title from "Christopher Reeve is an asshole" to "Christopher Reeve [[strike:is]] ''was'' an asshole."
** Averted a second time when bin Laden was assassinated, and he promptly declared that anyone posting depressing quotes about how they wouldn't wish death on anyone was being a wimp, and suggested celebrating instead.
** Even those celebrities he actually likes aren't entirely immune to this. His [[http://thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=abc_classy article on]] Creator/RobinWilliams' suicide, and ABC News' refusal to honor the family's wish for privacy that they themselves were reporting, ends with Maddox stating that every gracious thing anyone has ever said about Williams was true, "even though I still think Film/PatchAdams was shit and [[ChildHater had too many kids in it]]".

Maddox also appeared in an eighth season episode of Series/PennAndTellerBullshit about old people and the stereotypes about them. Maddox thought that old people sucked. In 2015, a full 5 years later, he fianlly made a video and article about his experience, only for PennJillette to apologize immediately on Twitter.

* DisproportionateRetribution: He once got an e-mail talking about how dull his site was. He responded by banning the person's ''entire ISP''... [[OhCrap with a message explaining that the banned individuals should send this dude an e-mail of gratitude.]]

* SlasherSmile: After reading hate mail criticizing him about his lack of smile, he has done something between this and the PsychoticSmirk at the end of many of his YouTube videos - despite his rather heated delivery, he retains quite a relaxed posture and attire. Many first-time viewers (and some even long-time fans) get surprised by this.

* AprilFoolsDay: He participates in it, often leaving a subtle hint that his temporarily-transformed website is a joke (such as putting "af" in the URL). One such prank he did was his [[Film/LooseChange Unfastened]] [[TakeThat Coins]] video, and another prank he did was [[http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=april_fools04 changing his page into a Xanga-style blog]]. Notably, the latter drew hate mail from people who [[SarcasmBlind thought he was for real]] and he [[http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=april_fools_you_morons really blew up at his fans about it]].
