* BloodhoundGang's ''I Hope You Die'' describes how its subject flips some guy the bird, and as a result ends up killing dozens of people in an accident and ends up molested by his psycho roommate in jail. Yeah...

* A notable double subversion of this trope is in the 1998 film ''Film/TheFaculty'', in which one of the main characters cooks up and sells unnamed "drugs", which prove to be crucial to foiling the alien scheme, as the drug's desiccant properties make them lethal to the water-dependent aliens and the humans they've possessed. In this case, the drug dealer not only survives, but also saves the day and gets the girl. Of course, the "drugs" [[spoiler:turn out to be ordinary caffeine pills ground up into powder]]. So a reversion to the trope because the "drug dealer" is really conning the people who want to do drugs, which makes it okay because they're getting what ''they'' deserve..

** When Jill buys a new sports car without Tim's help she forbids him to even touch it after he gives her a hard time for it. That doesn't stop him from hot-wiring it and taking it for a cruise. Of course he gets stuck in traffic and a news crew covering the traffic jam gets a shot of The Toolman that prints on the front page of the Metro section the next day.
** Similarly, when Tim gets a little too friendly (doesn't go beyond 'flirtation', but he later admits that the subconscious desire was probably there) with a female mechanic he hires to work on Brad's Mustang, a Red Light Camera catches him with her in the passenger seat and his hand suspiciously across her chest. Bonus points for the ticket arriving on their anniversary.

* Website/GoAnimate videos, especially the "Grounded" videos, will nail the victims with this trope hard. This is more noticeable in videos involving WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer as, no matter what she's done, if she isn't in the vicinity of grown ups when she does something bad, there will be news reports saying what happened, who did it, and in great detail.
