YMMV / Cyanide & Happiness

  • Acceptable Targets: Homophobes. Very hilariously as well.
  • Alternative Character Interpretation:
    • One comment on Youtube suggests The Adventures of Lunk skit represents the reaction when you play an RPG for hours on end, Die, then realize your save was hours ago, and have to replay everything.
    • In the animated short "Last Words", is the son a trans man, does his Mother have alzheimer, or is she just a troll?
  • Anvilicious: This strip manages to be that and the usual horrible C&H wrongness at the same time. Turns out the real monster is bad parenting.
  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Even though this is a gag-a-day comic, the series of strips starting with here and ending here surely count. They're nonsensical even by the standards of the comic, the art and humor are very out of place, and they are never revisited afterwards.
  • Broken Base:
    • The Depressing Comic Weeks. Are they a nice change of pace, or do they not belong in an otherwise humorous and goofy webcomic?
    • Season Too requiring a paid subscription to Seeso hasn't sat well with some fans, while others see it as Explosm deserving to make money off the series.
    • Joking Hazard, Explosm's attempt at making a card game. Some thought it was great. Others thought it was a cheap knockoff of Cards Against Humanity and that the requested Kickstarter amount was ludicrous for such a game.
  • Critical Research Failure: In "Rudy It's a Bitch Ass Life", Rudy's gravestone reveals that he was born in 1950, yet he's able to attend a desegregated Kindergarten with no apparent problems at all.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Almost the entire premise of the strip. This is probably the finest example though.
  • Discredited Meme: Did you hurt my dick?
  • Ear Worm:
    • The music used for the ending credits on the animated shorts.
    • The theme in Junk Mail.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Two big ones: Zombie Jesus, and the Purple-Shirted Eye stabber. The Conga Man is a good contender too.
    • And now the Barbershop Quartet!
    • El Reverso has become one in the show.
    • Star-Spangled Bastard qualifies as well.
  • Memetic Mutation: CONGA!
    • The clip of the king clapping in Episode 11 of the show has become fairly popular, to the point of him becoming Explosm's favicon. Someone even made a 1-hour version of it!
    • "Fucking soul-sucking bitch" from "The Punishment" has been commented in every video thereafter.
  • Narm: This strip from a Depressing Comic Week would have been a lot more effective at being, well, depressing, had there been no dialogue in the last panel, which instead comes off as Wangst.
  • Nausea Fuel: The plate of dicks in "Le Telepathé". The YouTube version has it blurred out, but those watching it on Vessel aren't so lucky.
