Compare KlingonScientistsGetNoRespect, where the target does a valuable job for their PlanetOfHats, but gets no respect because they don't wear the standard hat.

It's also worth noting that in general, most countries have a particular part or nearby country that they mock. For instance, the French usually mock the Americans, while United States locals love to mock the French. The English, Canadians, Australians, and New Zealanders each persist in claiming that the other country [[BestialityIsDepraved has a tradition of sodomizing sheep]], as well as overall national bigotry. There's no particular reason for this, other than thousands of years of wars. And, of course, the fact that the sheep are apparently sluts. The sheep thing shows up between the Scottish, Welsh, and northern English and in Italy between continental Italians and Sardinians, too. When in doubt, of course, one can always go for the Russians, who are still depicted as shadowy villains (often puppet masters using some "uncivilized barbarians" as lackeys) despite the Cold War having ended decades ago.

Political correctness is usually stringently observed on television; crossing the wrong (i.e. powerful or popular) minority group can result in anything up to cancellation. But while a show will be very cautious not to offend powerful and/or popular groups, such as (non-effeminate) homosexuals, blacks, Jews, and the (non-mentally) disabled, there are some groups which have no such standards of protection: namely the powerless and/or ''un-''popular-- ironically, the groups to whom political correctness ''should'' most reasonably apply. (As the late Molly Ivins wrote, "Satire is traditionally the weapon of the powerless against the powerful. I only aim at the powerful. When satire is aimed at the powerless, it is not only cruel -- it's vulgar.")
