--->'''Tim:''' Is it awesome... when you can't hold your newborn baby boy in your arms? Did you feed and dress yourself this morning? I didn't. I met a man on the bus today. I shook his hand. [[TouchOfDeath He'll never see his family again.]] [[SarcasmMode I guess it's pretty awesome.]] This line was considered so horrific in its implications that it was eventually cut out and replaced by a shorter version that skips straight to the phone gag below. You have to wonder exactly what the thinking was when they decided that portraying an innocent family man with a FateWorseThanDeath was a good way to sell rainbow-themed candy.

* One [[ValuesDissonance classical interpretation]] of the Medusa myth was that rather than being punishing her for sleeping with Poseidon, Athena was "protecting" her after he [[DoubleStandardRapeDivineOnMortal raped]] the gorgeous Medusa; by making her hideous and giving her the power to turn ogling men to stone, nobody would ever take advantage of her again (shades of DefiledForever). Or maybe Athena just took [[JackassGenie a sick pleasure in doling out a really twisted kind of protection.]]

** That's not the worst of it. Muslim tradition is somewhat sexist, so the standards are likely substantially higher for women to get into paradise than men. These Muslim martyrs promised virgin women? ''[[FridgeHorror What if]] [[WholesomeCrossdresser they aren't]]''?

* One of the [[OlderThanFeudalism earliest]] examples is the {{Greek myth|ology}} of King Midas. Everything he touched turned to gold. When he tried eating and drinking, he discovered the downside. (This also qualifies as NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished and BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor, as his golden touch was a wish granted by the god Dionysius as a reward for the hospitality Midas had shown to his friend and tutor Silenus. In Dionysius' defense he did try to warn him what a stupid wish it was.)

** Parodied in a Skittles commercial, in which an old man has the power to turn everything he touches into Skittles. His coworker thinks this is awesome. He is harshly corrected.
