    • Ty-d-bol

      When fry floats in the pond on a leaf, he calls himself the Ty-d-bol and says that he owns a yacht and that everybody poops on him. This is a reference to actor Dan Resin who in the 70's played a yachtsman in the Ty-d-bol commercials. Dan Resin died a week and a half before this episode aired.

    • At the protest, one of the creatures which claims to not have evolved is a flying spaghetti monster. This is a creature which has been "praised" by the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. It refers to their claim that a flying spaghetti monster is as plausible a theory of an omnipotent creator as a Judea Christian God. The spaghetti monster has been referenced by the TV show South Park, and by prominent atheist and evolutionist, Richard Dawkins.
