A running joke is the main character's mother barbecuing whole animals, such as snakes and alligator babies, for dinner. Seems to be all props

The main character has a noticeable stutter as his only confirmed disability. His obsession with water comes from being told his dad died of thirst in the desert during a war, and seems to be a trauma response rather than a autism-specific special interest.

In a flashback, we see a man supposedly having a "nervous breakdown" -- he is talking on a phone that isn't connected, suffering obvious delusions, and (for some reason) wearing high heels.

The football players make fun of the Waterboy, call him a 'moron', ridicule his mental capacities, etc. The R word is used inappropriately.

One joke involves the main character being sheltered and not understanding innuendo, making it sound like he is talking about having sex with his mother by accident
