* The pre-Election Day 2016 sketches, if you're a Hillary Clinton supporter, when it looked like the Clinton was going to win by a landslide.
* On that note, the "Never gonna be president now" meme that Creator/LinManuelMiranda referenced about UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump has become this, after Donald Trump unexpectedly won the election.

* 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.

* Season 15 Episode 14 has Fred Savage as a kid playing with a gun he took from his dad. Who just happened to be played by Phil Hartman. During the skit, Fred holds the gun to Phil and threatens to shoot him. Later on at the end. Kevin Nealon comes in to talk about gun safety. And, he startles Phil. Leading Phil to retort "Don't spook me like that. I almost blew your head off!" Not so funny, since that's basically what happened to Phil. Yeah...May be HarsherInHindsight.

* Creator/CarrieFisher, when she hosted in 1978, played [[Film/TheExorcist Linda Blair]] as Tom Snyder's guest on ''Tomorrow''. After discussing cocaine use she offers this prediction for her future, which eerily foreshadowed what would end up happening to Fisher herself.

* In a 2015 Weekend Update sketch, Creator/KateMcKinnon as Ruth Bader Ginsburg says that, while she's the oldest Supreme Court Justice, she's not the closest to death, mentioning that Antonin Scalia would go before her. Indeed, in February 2016, Scalia died of a heart attack.\

* When Phil Hartman came back to host for the second time (in season 22 -- the 1996-1997 season), he says in his monologue that he bought his family's affection with the money he makes from being on "NewsRadio" and "TheSimpsons." Apparently, it didn't work, when you consider what happened to Hartman a few months after he hosted.
