Sometimes they also tend to be portrayed as corrupt businessmen that are paid to brainwash the masses with all kinds of pro-governmental propaganda. This portrayal is often seen in... [[{{Irony}} political propaganda works]].

* ''PennAndTellerBullshit'' dedicated an episode to subverting this trope, showing that many prostitutes are just doing a job like anyone else, albeit one that's illegal in most jurisdictions. Though they played the Men in the Sex Industry part (see below) straight by not even acknowledging that they exist.

* "Franchise/JurassicPark" by Music/{{Weird Al|Yankovic}} (parody of "[=MacArthur=] Park") has the lyric: ''"A huge tyrannosaurs ate our lawyer, well I suppose that proves they're really not all bad."''

Though [[WordOfGod Weird Al]] has stated it's left to the listener's interpretation whether it's the lawyer or the tyrannosaurus that's "not all bad."

* There's been a rising trend in the number of comedians who refuse to accept any negative criticism, often blaming it on Political Correctness (if they're male), [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-things-that-make-doing-comedy-nightmare-women/ sexism]] (if they're female) or [[http://thenewdaily.com.au/entertainment/2016/02/15/lawrence-mooneys-viral-twitter-attack/ shoddy journalism]] (either gender).
** The 2007 documentary ''Heckler'' was produced by comedian Jamie Kennedy as retaliation for all the negative reviews and heckles he kept receiving. It gained notoriety for showing that maybe his [[DesignatedVillain designated villains]] had a point. In the doco's defense, there were several interviews with entertainers who were much more professional in their response to negative feedback.

Despite being the reason for any profession's continuation, and blamed for everything involving students (Hello, Parents!). Don't even start with the jokes involving sex or pedophilia. Despite TruthInTelevision and RealLife aspects, not all teachers enjoy, want, or desire extracurricular activities with their students, even if they are in the HotForTeacher or HotLibrarian category. Other insults include becoming a teacher "for the great holidays" and nothing else, digs about the wages (most common in US based shows), and running the gamut from alcoholic to depressive to passive-aggressive to [[HippieTeacher pleasant but useless]]. The reasoning behind teachers as acceptable targets could probably be put down to familiarity - almost everyone in countries where education is mandatory has met a teacher at some point. Not many of us can claim that a marine biologist was nasty to us, but most people had a teacher that they didn't like.

* Two auto mechanics try to stiff Stanley in ''Film/TheMask'', making him sign an unpriced bill and making a bet on whether they can trick him into paying for an imaginary engine part ''while he's in earshot''. They later get their humiliating comeuppance by the Mask. (A similar situation appears in the original, much more violent [[ComicBook/TheMask omic]], although the mechanics ended up brutally killed instead.)

** Though a lot of Phoenix's bad attitude towards prosecutors in the second game is related more to [[spoiler:Edgeworth's disappearance at the end of the first game, which Phoenix considered a personal betrayal]] than any actual antagonism towards the profession. He doesn't express any such thoughts in the first game or the ones after ''Justice For All''.

* ''{{Daria}}'' shows several teacher stereotypes.
* There also is the stereotype of drama, music or other fine arts teachers as being washed up performers who can't get work anywhere else (see ''TheSteveHarveyShow''). This can be TruthInTelevision. It may be easier to keep a job as a teacher (at least until recently) than to keep a job as an actor or artist.

* Averted by ''PushingDaisies'' when the team run into a mime. He initially attempts to describe his own murder through pure mime, but is told not to, quickly complies, and isn't portrayed as very annoying at all. In fact, Chuck asks "can you do trapped in a glass box, because I love that."
