* ''Series/{{SCTV}}'''s famous [=CCCP1=]-Russian Television episode, in which the show is "taken over" by a Soviet broadcast, includes several sketches deriding Uzbeks, like a PSA about them being "the weak link in the great chain of socialism", a warning against giving them matches and the famous line "Uzbeks drank my battery fluid!" At the time race relations in the USSR were pretty peaceful and if any Russians saw that episode then they probably found the suggestion that Russians hate Uzbeks as something completely farcical. [[TheNewRussia Nowadays]], it does not seem that unrealistic, since Uzbekistan is one of the largest sources of illegal immigrants to Russia, and people from Central Asia are now the primary targets of hate crimes committed by Russian Neo-Nazi thugs.

* During ''Creator/JeffDunham'''s All Over the Map tour/special in 2014, Malaysia "asked" Jeff not to use Achmed the Dead Terrorist, one of his most popular characters. To get around this, he instead used "Joques, the Dead French Terrorist". Given the terrorist bombings in Paris in 2015 and onwards, this has become a lot more.... Awkward.

* In 1990, Brazilian magazine ''Casseta Popular'' (whose members would be part of the comedy group Casseta & Planeta) did a satirical analysis of each team/country on the upcoming FIFAWorldCup. Yugoslavia's one said there was no joke to be told as it was an unremarkable and "meh" country. [[UsefulNotes/TheYugoslavWars One year later...]]

* [[http://www.theonion.com/article/penn-state-players-all-worried-theyre-going-to-be--21120 An article]] from ''TheOnion'' in August 2011 about Joe Paterno ended with the sentiment that without Penn State, Joe Paterno would probably die. Paterno was fired as the head coach at Penn State in November 2011 due to the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal. Two months later, Paterno died.

* In Creator/ChrisRock's 2008 stand-up show ''Kill the Messenger'', he criticizes John [=McCain=] for always saying that he is a war hero for being a POW, saying "I don't want to vote for nobody that got captured, I want to vote for the motherfucker that got away". In 2015, UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump got in hot water for dissing [=McCain=]'s claims and saying that he likes "people who weren't captured".

* One of the articles from ''TheOnion'' from 2011 about Joe Paterno ended with the sentiment that without Penn State football, Joe Paterno would probably die. If you've been following the Penn State sex scandal at all, you know how this one ends. For those who don't (either out of ignorance or having better things to do with their time), here's what happened: Very shortly after being dismissed as the head coach at Penn State due to the Sandusky scandal, Joe Paterno died.

** The final sketch on the season 19 finale hosted by Heather Locklear where PhilHartman, in his last episode as a cast member, sings a lullaby to Chris Farley. It was meant to be sweet and signal the end of the season, but with both Farley and Hartman dead (within 6 months of each other!), it's now too depressing to watch.

* After ''Series/TheChasersWarOnEverything'' was pulled for two weeks following a particularly offensive sketch, the next show they aired showed them doing good things for the community, including: Closing Scientology down for good, getting rid of all the Andre Rieu [=CDs=] in the world, and ''Taking Kyle Sandilands off the air permanently''. Four days later, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyle_Sandilands#Lie_detector_radio_segment this happens]], although, most Australians would argue that this doesn't count, as Mr. Sandilands really is an asshole.
