* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Krusty, as usual. Not only does he sells horrifyingly unhealthy food, he personally staples together leftover burgers so they can be sold again and when the documentary man that took the challenge to eat nothing for Krusty food for several days (a la "Film/SuperSizeMe") apparently drops dead from the obesity, Krusty ''[[TheSecretOfLongPorkPies picks him up with a forklift to grind him up for hamburger meat]]''. He only manages to grind the man's arm before he wakes up, though... and then sells him the resulting hamburger. [[IAmAHumanitarian At least he liked the taste]].

* TapOnTheHead: Subverted. Homer's concussion leads to several really bad side-effects MadeOfIron or not, including hallucinations (thankfully, the imaginary Cain turns out to be pretty helpful) and blood oozing from his eyeballs. Being a complete idiot is the reason Homer takes the medically-mandated time off (wherein he should be resting extensively) as vacation time to go out "to work" and scheme a way to woo his wife. Even Marge is horrified when Homer eventually tells her.
