** In "Obsessed", he makes a jab at Whole Foods for their food being too expensive. After he hypothetically runs out of money, he says he'll put the rest of his groceries on his Amazon wish list. Amazon would later purchase Whole Foods in June of 2017, possibly making Jim's joke a reality in the future.

** Throughout his specials, Jim will comment on how crazy having kids is. In ''Beyond the Pale'' and ''King Baby'', he mentions having two and three kids respectively. It gets funnier when you listen to ''Mr. Universe'' where he says having a fourth child is like "you're drowning and someone hands you a baby" and finally in ''Obsessed'' he announces he and his wife had a '''fifth''' child.
-->"I don't know what happened! Ten years ago I couldn't even get a date and now my apartment is literally crawling with babies!"

** ''Cinco'' has a few jokes about tumors. Shortly before the album version was released, his wife Jeannie was discovered to have a large brain tumor, which was luckily benign and able to be completely removed.

* GrowingTheBeard: ''Doing My Time'' marked a major step forward for Jim. Though most of the material was originally featured on previous albums, the presentation and performance have been sharpened and honed to a significant degree.

* FridgeBrilliance: In the Extenze bit that ends Mr. Universe, Jim says he could never buy Extenze because he wouldn't want to dispute that charge on his credit card. He then plays the hypothetical role of a customer calling in because his penis is still really tiny. According to American Greed, this is actually how Extenze made the bulk of its money back when it was owned by Longitude. If you wanted to dispute a charge, you'd have to go through a lengthy process to "prove" that the product didn't work. Some of this process was measuring your penis and reporting the results. Most people just canceled their subscription...
