Early's Trucker Hats[]

  • "Shoot First, Ask Questions Never!"




  • Several chickens are seen in the beginning of the episode, one chicken (called "Dickie" by Early) is too weak to lift weights, didn't wear a belt, and then died when its breasts and organs fell out, an another is a dead hen named "Jessie", and others are malnourished and over-watered from Early's hose. Rusty thought he had to bulk up some chickens, but that would take six to eight weeks to do.
    • Oddly, Dan Halen claims their "weightlifting bird is powerful and strong."
  • This episode reveals that Early has his own mobile home on his own house. Granny controls the mobile's home steering wheel, it has its own fake cannon, and the same mobile home has a large mermaid statue roped onto the sails, a tire is seen, and the confederate flag is part of the mobile home's large flag roped onto the home. The mobile home even has its own pirate flag, and small wooden boat down below. The mobile home is most likely a pirate ship.
    • Granny mentions "oh, we'll be ready when Katina gets up here." She is most likely a referring to a person or Hurricane Katrina, the latter is a hurricane that flooded the New Orleans in the year 2005.

  • Both the chicken and Early's DNA were used for the mutant chickens, from a machine. Mutant chickens were also made from chicken wings, celery sticks and ranch dipping from their anus.
    • Both were even taped together.

  • In the background of the jailcell, you can see a small heart.
  • The month Whermber is mentioned by Early when he mentions that he has been voting against teaching sex in school, though it isn't a real month.
  • Rusty puts a roil baton in Sheriff's mouth since he affected by tumors from the mutant chickens. Also Early throws a plate with small broccoli on it which breaks into pieces, with some small pieces of the broken plate and small broccoli visible.
  • In one of Rusty's hallucinations, the nursing home from "This Show Is Called Squidbillies", "School Days, Fool Days" and "Asses to Ashes, Sluts to Dust" makes an actually appearance in the background. The chipmunk also puts leaves on Russell's head.
