* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: In one comic, when Gunther's Uncle Junie died, Gunther said that his uncle's last wish was if the family had to remember him with tears, it would be better to just forget about him.
** Diane [[ParentalObliviousness never seems to make the connection]] between this sad fact and [[NeverMyFault her son's reluctance]] to shop with her.

* BizarroEpisode: Every year for Kwanzaa, the strip runs a two-week-long StoryArc that involves new, made-up characters doing absolutely ridiculous things that resemble African folktales, with little concern for anything other than being awesomely over-the-top, often toeing the line between RuleOfCool and an outright MindScrew. Past arcs have included [[http://joshreads.com/images/07/01/i070102curtis.jpg a golden, telepathic otter and a magic sandal]] and [[http://joshreads.com/images/0601/i060109curtis.jpg bat-winged bears]], among others. Consensus among fans (or at least among TheComicsCurmudgeon and his followers) is that these are among his best works; he even considers the otter "still the gold standard."
** They actully ''do'' tie it into the strip, but always in the same way: It always turns out to be [[spoiler:a book Curtis was reading.]]

* CriticalResearchFailure: One story has a butcher that used to be a Disney animator who was laid off. The reason for said layoff was ''Pixar'', which if you know anything about how Disney and Pixar work, is completely untrue.

* CriticalResearchFailure: One relatively recent story arc (about a year ago) has a butcher that used to be a Disney animator who was laid off. The reason for said layoff was ''Pixar'', which if you know anything about how Disney and Pixar work, is completely untrue.

* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents, GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Subverted on both counts in a series of strips where Curtis and Barry find an unmarked videotape belonging to their parents. It is implied in one panel that [[spoiler: it's a sex tape.]] However, it turns out that it's [[spoiler: an old episode of SoulTrain that their parents appeared on, which also serves as the "how they met" story for Diane and Greg.]] After watching the tape, Curtis and Barry have a newfound respect for their parents, i.e. that their parents actually did something "cool" in their eyes.
