|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.|
- Acceptable Inevitable Targets: Both teens and adults are lampooned from the opposite perspective.
- Ensemble Darkhorse: Pierce!
- Harsher in Hindsight: One of the earliest strips is Jeremy musing on how his generation didn't have the life changing events his parents' did (such as the Kennedy assassination and the moon landing). This was before 9/11.
- We're Still Relevant, Dammit: Some think that the creators are still able to perfectly capture teenage and parent life without feeling like you're watching a rerun from a really old sitcom, despite the fact that the comic began in 1997 and that the creators haven't raised a teenager in quite a while. Others think the strip is a printed slurry of lazy, decades-old stereotypes and a 60-something man's Oedipal Complex.
