* DudeNotFunny: The joke about Pittsburgh didn't really sit well with the residents of Pittsburgh.
** In a 2005 strip, Bucky whacks Satchel in the back of the head with a TV remote so hard it causes him to cry, all over a piece of cheese. Although Satchel is often the victim of Bucky's brutality, and Bucky has made Satchel cry before (and over insignificant things), many, many fans felt this was an absolute low point for the comic.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Mac Manc Mcmanx is a pretty darn cool and [[FunnyForeigner funny]] character. He speaks in all sorts of brit lingo and apparently squats in Rob's house.
** It certainly doesn't hurt matters that he's not a JerkAss like Bucky is.
* HilariousInHindsight: Bucky doctored one of Satchel's ''WheresWaldo'' books by changing it to ''Where's [[OsamaBinLaden Osama?]]''. At the end, a bunch of American troops find him, and presumably kill him, prompting Rob to say "you can't sell this to kids". In 2011...
* MisaimedFandom: PETA fans don't seem to realize that the strip doesn't exactly cheer for the organization.
* {{Padding}}: The newer strips tend to draw their jokes out to ridiculous lengths, often to the point where it's same subject several weeks later and has pretty much devolved into rephrasing the same punchline as many times as possible.
* TheWoobie: Satchel, who is almost always being abused by Bucky, both verbally and physically.
** Also Bucky's cousin Mac Manc Mcmanx counts. His girlfriend got in a huge fight with him, he got a teacup/plate embedded in his skull, he was detained by airport security and mistaken as a terrorist, no one can understand his dialect except Bucky and above all, he's an UglyCute. Awww......someone give him a hug already!
