%%Since all actors and creators are mortal, if someone mentions death or plays a character who dies, and then die themselves, that's not a "Funny Aneurysm" Moment unless there's some connection to the circumstances of the death which was originally played for laughs.

%%While it is cringeworthy today, the World Trade Center appearing in a work made prior to 9/11 is not an example of this unless there is some sort of reference of the towers being attacked.

* In "Homer Defined", Magic Johnson "pulls a Homer" when he slips on a wet spot during a breakaway, loses control of the ball which goes off the referee's head and into the basket. He ends up in the adoring arms of four cheerleaders. Less than a month after the episode aired, Johnson announced he was HIV positive, which he got from sleeping around with many women.

* A scene in the 1999 episode "Monty Can't Buy Me Love" depicting billionaire Arthur Fortune knocking out Muhammad Ali was already in rather bad taste, given that Ali was by then quite significantly crippled by Parkinson's disease (this was just a few years after his emotional, shaky lighting of the 1996 Olympic torch). The gag became even more uncomfortable in the years that followed, as Ali became ever-more frail before eventually dying from septic shock on June 3, 2016.
