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.
Denser and Wackier: It's been called one of the craziest and least loved episodes of the series — edging out such former contenders as "Saddlesore Galatica," "Kill The Alligator and Run," and "Homer vs. Dignity."
Dude, Not Funny!: Many fans consider the treatment of the family by the townspeople to be this, and the excessive and heavy-handed anti-Republican satire.
Values Dissonance: This episode is more looked down upon now than it was back then now that Bush has left office and we've grown out of the over-patriotic attitudes of the early 2000s. Of course, back then it wasn't exactly liked because of how heavy-handed it was in the political department.
