These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: The Comics Curmudgeon
Acceptable Targets: Of course, the long-runners which make up the bulk of the blog's grist and for some reason Petting Zoo People (mostly due to the evident threat the overthrowing of humans by animals with sapience proves to Josh).
Josh only ever discussed Mallard Fillmore on the blog once, to note the irony of a comic discussing rum-free eggnog running right when the strip's author was arrested for his second DUI. The insane frenzy of political bickering in the comments section led to him vowing never to do it again. A few years later, he completely banned all discussion of that strip on the site due to the trend of every comment about Mallard Fillmore spawning flame wars.
Politics in general is very touchy and generally frowned upon, with warnings to take such things elsewhere. This Family Circus comic from October 2008 touched off a major firestorm even though the comic itself wasn't about politics - it just happened to have Dolly dressed up as Sarah Palin for Halloween, and Josh made a remark about it since nothing else in Family Circus ever seems remotely topical. It's one of the few times that Josh has created a new topic thread to excoriate the offenders for their bad behavior.
Memetic Mutation: "More zippers, mule!" a line from Apartment 3-G, has spread to other blogs.
