*** Oddly inverted in the Halloween 2012 comic, where Billy declares he wants to go out as "Tactical Sergeant Tarkus from the [[VideoGame/DawnOfWar Blood Ravens]] 4th Company in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''." Even for 40k fans that's a ridiculously obscure reference, and 40k itself is almost completely unknown outside of geek culture.

** In the mid-'80s when the Chrysler minivans first came out, the family traded their generic station wagon in for one. For the rest of TheEighties, Keane drew it with authentic 1984-86 Plymouth Voyager styling cues; since then it's slowly morphed back into a generic wagon.

* ValuesDissonance: A lot of the humour in parodies like Dysfunctional Family Circus comes from the fact that the original strips can often be read as promoting traditionalist values to the point of being retrograde. For example, [[http://www.joshreads.com/images/0407/famcirc040724.jpg this]] strip's meaning is (Hopefully) that the two statements are one and the same.

* TearJerker: Even the online comics snark community found the tribute to Thel Keane (who recently passed away) to be rather touching.

* MsFanservice: Thel. In some of the older OOP book collections, check out some of the two-piece bikinis and tight fighting clothes she wears.
