* Back in 1999, ''Webcomic/PennyArcade'' published a [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/1999/11/03/ strip]] about ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'', which [[ReverseFunnyAneurysm became funnier]] with each year of the game's [[{{vaporware}} famously long]] development (which, back then, had only been over two years.) Almost a decade later, its developer [[http://www.shacknews.com/laryn.x?story=58519 shut down]].

* [[http://www.bugmartini.com/comic/bucket-list/ This comic]] of ''Bug Martini'' talked about attacking Paris; it became a lot less funny in 2015 after the Chariie Hebdo shootings that January and even less funny after the much deadlier attacks ten months later.

* [[http://brawlinthefamily.keenspot.com/2013/09/24/513-smash-voters-ice-climbers/ This]] ''Webcomic/BrawlInTheFamily'' comic, doubly so, because not only did the Ice Climbers end up getting cut from Smash for Wii U/3DS, Snake, the other character in this comic, did as well.

To make matters worse, the author comments below the comic mentions the possibility of the 3DS not being able to handle the Ice Climbers, which ended up being the reason they got cut: the 3DS just doesn't have the power to keep up with four sets of Ice Climbers at once without serious lag or framerate drops.

* An ''IrregularWebcomic'' strip involved a character who is [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed obviously not Steve Irwin]] not dying from a fatal snakebite because [[DeathTakesAHoliday Death was on strike]]. It had the annotation, "Oh come on. You all knew Steve wouldn't die."

* ''{{Megatokyo}}'' has [[http://www.megatokyo.com/strip/51 this]] fairly early strip depicting what would happen if Fred worked without Rodney, or vice-versa. Two years later, Rodney stopped contributing to the comic; the old joke strip turned out to be, in many ways, pretty accurate. * ''[[OneOverZero 1/0]]'' declared "war" on another webcomic on September 11th of 2000. * ''LeftoverSoup'': The CrimeOfSelfDefense storyline was ''in progress'' when George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin. * The [[http://www.lefthandedtoons.com/361/ 21 November 2008 Left-Handed Toons (by right-handed people)]] subverted this trope by undercutting the punchline ''the day it was posted''.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' manages to create an Aneurysm Moment ''retroactively'' with the punch line of [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0548.html this]] strip. The aneurysm doesn't come until you remember (or read, if you hadn't already) the StartOfDarkness prequel in which you realize just [[MoralEventHorizon how low]] Xykon can go (and how painfully aware Redcloak is of it).

* [[http://www.asofterworld.com/index.php?id=483 This strip]] of ''ASofterWorld'' illustrates what seems like a rather improbable idea of what causes terrorists to be terrorists.

In Part Two, [[spoiler:after we’ve found out that that [[AllJustADream everything in Part One was essentially a reality show,]] it’s revealed that the actor who played Jake is actually a [[WordofGod “straight douche”]] who won an Emmy Award for his portrayal of Jake. The commentary on [[http://rosalarian.com/yume/?p=1383 this page]] suggests that he primarily won the award because of the (mis)perception that it’s a huge challenge for a straight actor to play a gay character.]] * In Webcomic/{{Misfile}}, after having a year of her life erased (the year during which she gained admission to Harvard, no less), Emily is told to "Enjoy all the extra time you've got." It took on a whole new meaning once you realize that without the misfile, [[spoiler:Emily would've died in the same car accident that sent Molly to the hospital.]]
