* FunnyAneurysmMoment: One strip featured a croc disappointed that Steve Irwin's head has never been bitten off, published just a few months before Irwin's real death from a stingray attack. Also, a fat joke about Ted Kennedy became much less funny after his death.

* OffendingTheCreatorsOwn: One early Sunday strip featured Pig eating in an absolutely ''filthy'' Greek restaurant where the staff spoke broken English. Greeks and Greek-Americans were not happy. Pastis is himself Greek-American.
--> '''Restaurant owner''': Yasou, pig...Georgios, he drop you gyro behind stove, but ees okay, becose Yanni can reach with mop...
** To give more details, when the strip was reprinted in a treasury, Pastis added this comment:
---> '''Pastis''': This June 9th strip was my first experience with reader outrage. I thought that I could get away with it [[NWordPrivileges because I was Greek]]. That was not the case. Greeks everywhere complained. While I wouldn't do it again, I still maintain that everyone [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad is just a wee bit too sensitive these days]].

** That said, though, Andrews McMeel, who publishes the book collections, have put out a few child-friendly "Pearls" books (a selection of kid-appropriate strips) through its "AMP! Comics For Kids" banner.

* CreatorsPet: Rat has a few shades of this.
** To be sure, Rat is...[[LoveToHate "liked"]], and to note, Pastis has stated that Rat is his [[AuthorAvatar evil alter-ego]] and he often lets Rat say things he ''wishes'' he could. So, a possibly Justified version.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: The character of Alphonse the Porcupine revolves around pretending to attempt suicide to get attention.

* EnsembleDarkHorse: Da Crocs. Also, Orca. Ironically, Pastis decided to kill him off when he thought he was unpopular. By the time he realized Orca ''was'' popular, it was too late. Nonetheless, the character made one more appearance in an arc about baseball, with the usual explanation that he "un-died". Although, immediately afterwards, Rat states "[[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments I had to kick Orca off our team, because technically, he's dead.]]" But then Orca returned once more in 2013 by devouring the killer dolphins.

** OsamaBinLaden staying with the cast of ''ComicStrip/TheFamilyCircus'' became even funnier when it turned out that bin Laden was indeed hiding in plain sight.
