Sex & Nudity

    • Kiki hands Bartleby a bag of cash to pay for her tuition and blankly says, "I'm done fishing singles out of my G-string. I'm in college now." This opens the door for characters to repeatedly ogle her and her female friends in various states of undress. She also becomes prime fodder for repeated sexual innuendo.
    • A student searching for his inner passion in woodworking, creates fertility-god-like statues with enormous phalli.
    • Sherman is forced to dress in sexually humiliating costumes. For example, he wears a hotdog costume and must stand in the student commons imploring people to ask him about his wiener.
    • Uncle Ben, the only adult depicted as really knowing anything, uses harsh sexual language and spouts references to body parts and sexual organs to illustrate to students how society is abusing them and turning them into "pimps and pussies".
    • Bartleby tends to attack his enemies with "jokes" about their sexual actions. For example, he accuses a bully of sexual harassment, a frat boy of being gay and his high school vice principal of masturbating.
    • Girls are shown in low-cut shirts, short skirts, micro bikinis, and body paint.
    • A male student, dressed in nothing but underwear, is shown unconscious on a pool float with three bikini-clad girls after an all-night party.
    • A man sings and jumps around in Speedo-type trunks.
    • A well-attended class "teaches" guys "how to" eyeball curvaceous girls in the pool.
