Awesome: Boy's Life
- Cory jamming a broomstick down Old Mose's throat, for one.
- The calm and slow Mr. Lightfoot disabling a goddamn bomb while Mr. Moulry complains and insults him all the way, and then scaring the daylights out of him by imitating an explosion. That second part doubles as a Crowning Moment of Funny.
- Pretty much the entirety of "High Noon in Zephyr".
- For most of the book Cory and his friends are picked on by a couple of bullies. Then they go too far and get both their asses handed to them for it by one of Cory's friends.
