* On an episode of ''FibberMcGeeAndMolly'' from March 20th, 1945 where Fibber is trying to fix the radio, Molly says "I hope you fix it in time for Roosevelt's next inauguration!" UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt died 23 days later.

* After the Columbia space shuttle broke up during re-entry, one of the items recovered in the debris field was [[http://www.nasa.gov/columbia/media/Media_Resources_Archives.html the videotape that was being recorded in the cabin as they were re-entering]] (this was standard procedure on shuttle flights). The final critical minutes were missing (presumably because the outer layers of the tape on the take-up reel were damaged), but fifteen minutes into the recording, as the glow of the plasma caused by atmospheric re-entry becomes visible through the cabin windows and lights up the interior, Pilot Willie McCool says, "This is amazing, it's really getting fairly bright out there", and Commander Rick Husband jokes, "Yeah, you definitely don't want to be outside now"... A few minutes later they were.

** The part ''Enchanted Tiki Room Under New Management'' where Iago is charred by the tiki gods is slightly uncomfortable with a fire damaging the attraction in 2011. Though it could be HiilariousInHindsight for those who [[ReplacementScrappy hated that rendition and preferred the original.]]

-->'''John'': Isn't it weird how that became a scandalous thing? That was just some boring shit I had to do on weekends. But now it's like saying, "I was a French maid for a period of time."

* A minor one. In ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'', Calvin discusses how gross sliced lunch meat is (such as saying the skin is plastic) and that apples are dyed and waxed to enhance their appearance, but you're basically eating a candle. Apples are actually waxed with "food grade shellac" (which is the stuff found on some insect carapaces)... but instead of it being for appearance it's to help preservation.

* A Federal Express ad with Steve Irwin dying of a snake bite because they used the wrong service, gets darker when considering the causes surrounding Irwin's death.

* Ride/DisneyThemeParks
** A popular joke on the ''Jungle Cruise'' has the skippers advising parents "Watch your children, or the crocodiles will". In June 2016, a two-year-old boy was dragged into a lagoon and drowned by an alligator near Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and the cruise skippers were told to never use the joke again.
** ''Universe of Energy'' at Epcot was once sponsored by Exxon, and while it discussed clean energy at length, it also ended with a long celebration of Exxon and their oil tankers. This...didn't go over well after a certain incident in Alaska, and the show was changed...
** ...into a new show that might as well be renamed "I Love Fossil Fuels". It was probably [[HarsherInHindsight unfunny]] to start with, but people were apparently ''leaving the theater'' after the gas crisis and the show plays even worse now. As of yet, there are no stated plans to change anything.

* Prior to the 2000 U.S. Presidential Election, Dave Barry wrote a column talking about the election results, with blanks left for the winner. The joke was supposed to be that he couldn't be bothered to stay up late on election night to find out the results and asked the editor to fill it in later. However, due to the Florida recount controversy, the election ended up not being decided until over a month later.

* In February 1959, Music/WaylonJennings lost a coin-flip to Music/BuddyHolly and was forced to take a bus to Minnesota whereas Buddy took a plane. Before leaving, Holly joked "Well, I hope your ol' bus freezes up.", to which Jennings joked, "Well, I hope your ol' plane crashes." Tragically, the plane did crash, killing Holly and everybody else aboard. [[PartingWordsRegret Jennings was haunted by those words for the rest of his life]].
