* CruelAndUnusualDeath: The punch line to Martin Mull's version of the joke. Three religious missionaries run afoul of an aboriginal tribe and are given a choice of "Death" or "The Aristocrats". The first two choose The Aristocrats, which consists of the men of the tribe brutally violating them in every sexual way imaginable. The third guy, having witnessed the utter horror of The Aristocrats twice now opts for death. The chief says "very well, you shall be put to death... But first, The Aristocrats!"

Added DiffLines:

** In fairness, the unedited version of Saget's rendition of the joke is available on the internet and shows that he wasn't corpsing as much as he appeared to be; they just left in the corpsing because those are the funniest bits.


'''Nobody''' should confuse this film with ''Disney/TheAristocats''. Several comedians in the documentary note the hazard of accidentally saying "The Aristocats" instead of the actual punchline.

Added DiffLines:

* FreudianSlip: As noted in the lead, saying "Aristocats" as in the Disney movie screws up everything.
-->"What do you call yourself?" "The Aristocats." Oh, no - the "Aristocrats!" So people would think that was part of the joke, that the guy himself got the name wrong, and people would be saying, "Why did he say 'cats' and then 'crats?'" He didn't. I just had a problem. Which was more absurd.


* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/RodneyDangerfield and Creator/BuddyHackett were both originally going to have scenes, but had to opt out due to health issues. Both of them passed away before the film's release.


* DontExplainTheJoke: ''Completely'' inverted. The whole purpose of the movie is to explain it. Due to the simple foundation of the joke and the tremendous amount of adlibbing and embellishing involved making each telling different, the joke is ''not'' killed in the explanation. Creator/GilbertGottfried breaks the joke down a bit to examine why it's funny:
