* Given that it makes fun about world history and often focuses on WorldWarII, the entire idea of "Axis Powers Hetalia" might fall under that. Making fun about the deadliest war in history normally would be BlackComedy at best, but having World War II presented as China beating up the entire Axis with a wok is just plain ridiculous.

** In their promotional campaign months before the release, Creator/{{Funimation}} showed exactly why their dub of ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'' was given a TV-MA rating. This immediately had the side effect of the fandom becoming a BrokenBase over the altered dialogue.
*** To clarify for those not familiar with the series: the protagonists are ThoseWackyNazis, the characters are merciless cultural stereotypes, and the whole show basically reads like World War II if World War II were a wildly inappropriate reality show. [[RefugeInAudacity And it's hilarious]].
-->'''[[NationsAsPeople China]]''': We're not allowed to have Christmas trees in our country because they're flammable. It kind of sucks.
-->'''Italy''': Heh, [[DoubleEntendre just like the girls]].

* A series of Pop-Tarts commercials have really pushed the boundary by portraying the Pop-tarts as sentinet people always being hunted by humans and animals out to gobble them up. Worse is the Pop-tarts always lose, an especially weird one has a baby pop-tart eaten by a nurse as its parents ''watch''.

** All of "Best Disease Ever" from the title onward, concluding with hypothetical Alcoholics Anonymous member Richie K in Norm's cheerful deadpan.
--> One time I was under the influence of the demon rum, and I started punching my newborn in the face. I kinda looked down on my fist and it was all bloody with, uh, I don't know what it was. It was either from my knuckles or my son's ''skull''.

* ''Fanfic/TheLastWar'' goes so over the top in its [[RonTheDeathEater portrayal of Ron]] as the Potterverse's answer to [[EastEnders Trevor Morgan]] that it becomes a total farce very quickly. Even before the [[Series/TheATeam A-Team]] show up.

* Jimmy Carr has based his entire stand-up career on crossing the line twice, thrice, quarce, whilst using as many rude words as possible. Needless to say, you either love [[LoveItOrHateIt love him or hate him]].

* Jimmy Carr has based his entire stand-up career on crossing the line twice, thrice, quarce, whilst using as many rude words as possible. Needless to say, you either love [[LoveItOrHateIt love him or hate him]]. A radio host once asked him if there are any lines he's unwilling to cross. Jimmy said he leaves that up to the audience: if he tries out a new joke and [[DudeNotFunny nobody laughs]], then evidently that one is going too far. If the audience does laugh, however, then obviously the joke must be funny, so he'll keep using it.

Added DiffLines:

* The game ''Public Assistance: Why Bother Working for a Living?'' is a parody of the American welfare/government assistance program where the object of the game is to stay on welfare as long as possible to make easy money (and even do illegal things on the side like prostitution, having illegitimate children, and selling drugs) whereas doing things people do a daily basis like working a 9-5 job and paying bills is considered a detriment to the player's success and such areas on the board are actually called "Worker's Burden" to simulate the burden of making income.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', Klara haltingly describes to Karolina and Molly how her parents forced her to marry an old drunk who forces her to go out and take dangerous jobs to earn money that he wastes on booze, and then trails off as she mentions how he also forces her into "[[MaritalRapeLicense marital duties]]". Molly... doesn't quite grasp the euphemism.
