* At the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner, Seth Meyers joked that OsamaBinLaden was hosting a talk show on C-SPAN. The next day, Obama announced Bin Laden's death. This one was arguably HilariousInHindsight for most people.

* Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini's tragic second defense of his WBA lightweight title against Korean boxer Duk Koo Kim at Caesar's Palace in 1982: After 13 punishing rounds, the camera cuts to the little-known South Korean challenger in his corner and commentator Tim Ryan says "This is the challenger, Duk-koo Kim. You may not have heard of him before. You will remember him today, win or lose." A few seconds later, Mancini hit Kim with a right hook, knocking Kim to the ground and, at that point unknown to anyone, causing a massive subdural hematoma. As the Kim struggled to rise, referee Richard Green declared Mancini the winner by TKO. Unaware of Kim's condition, Mancini celebrated with his corner and the cameras for several long minutes, before commending Kim's "tremendous chin" in the post-match interview. Four days later, Kim died at Desert Springs Hospital, and both Kim and Mancini became infamous.
