YMMV: Wife Swap

  • Dude, Not Funny!: Christopher Childs' episode has this in spades. You can normally enjoy the Bigot vs. Bigot combat, whereas he's just plain psycho.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • "Bacon is good for me!", and every other line by "King Curtis".
    • Richard Heene's son, the "Balloon Boy".
  • Moral Event Horizon: Anything Christopher Childs does.
  • The Scrappy: Christopher Childs.
  • Snark Bait: Many a wiseass has quipped "But exactly how far does the wife-swapping go?" Unlike the famous "keys-in-a-bowl" parties held by some adventurous neighborhoods, the TV swapping never even goes as far as sharing the same bed.
  • Strawman Has a Point: On occasion.
  • Tear Jerker: Christopher Childs successfully brainwashing his daughter Columbia into ditching her dreams of becoming a successful woman in favor of being a servant to her future husband. Kim (the replacement wife)'s reaction to this is also quite upsetting.
  • The Woobie: The children of Christopher Childs.
