** A lesser known example from the "Not Ready for Prime Time" era is in a sketch known as "Least-Loved Bedtime Stories." Michael O'Donoghue narrates a story called "The Little Engine that Died," where he says "I think I can...I Think I Can...HEARTATTACK...OHMYGODTHEPAIN!" In 1994, "Mr. Mike" woke up, felt what was thought to be a severe migraine headache, and screamed "OH MY GOD" in pain and later died from cerebral hemorrhage. Michael O'Donoghue was an SNL writer known for his sadistic humor and his frequent migraines, making this death a literal "funny aneurysm moment" ''and'' a KarmicDeath.

* ''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.
