It has the sort of weirdness that The Simpsons had at their peak -- before the show became a giant celebrity cameo fest.
Ken Jeong had some nice moments this episode incidentally. Toned down his usual shouting and the "Looooooser" drive-by was nicely timed.
And in this episode, Jeong was dialed back. I'm not in the camp that says Jeong isn't funny. I just think his delivery comes off as downright desperate at times. Obviously his routine is about anger. But, from a comedic standpoint, that seething sort of Sideshow Bob anger is a lot funnier than the over-the-top Angry Dad humor. (I'm stuffing this post with Simpsons jokes. Can we get a Poochie joke before its over? OH WOW! I think that was a Poochie joke! Or, dare I say, a metajoke.)

The thing that is really funny about Community is that the writers seem to have a list of things they flat-out hate and intend to tear to shreds.
Some of the funniest moments on Community so far have been brutal deconstructions of things the writers hate, such as the episode tearing apart Dead Poets Society.
