* AluminumChristmasTrees: The Canyonero F-Series. Meet the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dodge_La_Femme Dodge La Femme]], a rare version of the first generation Dodge Lancer offered only in 1955 and 1956. Not only was it a trim level of a car explicitly marketed to women, the La Femme came with a lipstick case (which was inside of a purse that matched the car's interior), not unlike how the F-Series came with a lipstick applicator in the cigarette port.
* AsianBuckTeeth and AsianSpeekeeEngrish: Krusty's offensive Asian impression: "ME SO SOLLY!" is complete with him putting in fake teeth.

At a charity comedy show, Krusty discovers that his brand of humor is out of step with modern stand-up comedy. After announcing his retirement and going on a drunken bender, Krusty wakes up at the Simpsons household and, with the help of Bart Simpson and special guest star, Jay Leno, Krusty becomes an anti-establishment stand-up comic (''a la'' Creator/GeorgeCarlin, Denis Leary, Creator/DennisMiller, and Bill Hicks), but must choose between his ethics and selling out when an agent offers him the chance to be the spokesman for a new SUV called The Canyonero.
