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.

Tastes Like Diabetes: In an elaborate example of Jack's numerous Take Thats, after reading a radio critic's lament about how comedy of the day relied too heavily on insults, Jack invited said critic to his show (which was being broadcast from Palm Springs that day), and showed him just how awful comedy would be if there were no insults.
Done again in a Recycled Script television episode with the lamentation coming from the reverend Billy Graham.
