Added DiffLines:

* ''[[WebVideo/FilthyFrank The Filthy Frank Show]]'' goes out of its way to [[CrossesTheLineTwice deliberately]] make fun of a whole slew of different groups of people. Perhaps Frank himself summarized it best when he said, "Here on ''The Filthy Frank Show'', we support prejudice equality: everyone gets shit."

Added DiffLines:

* [[{{Magazine/Mad}} MAD Magazine]] had mocking commentary about any genre of movie, every political candidate, every philosophy, most celebrities, and even both sides of the Cold War (in the form of Spy vs. Spy). If there was a sacred cow to be found, they'd fire up the barbeque. In the process, the lawsuits they incurred by the targets they spoofed could fill a small law library in regards to speech and press freedoms in the USA.

* GeorgeCarlin, moreso in his early days than his later ones. If you exist, he makes fun of you. Woman, man, black, white, left, right, didn't matter. To him, you sucked or someone was making you up.

* [[SethMacFarlane The creator]] of ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' [[WordOfGod has stated]] that his goal is to offend everyone. The writers on ''Family Guy'', however, go much easier on certain targets than they do on [[AcceptableTargets others]].
** ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' is a better example, for example the main character and his daughter (who are right/left wing radicals respectively) are both depicted as [[NotSoDifferent complete hypocrites]].
** Interestingly enough, on one of the most reviled episodes "Not all Dogs go to Heaven", which insults religion, the episode seems offensive to atheists while trying to make people agree with them.

A number of people have called themselves equal-opportunity offenders when defending themselves from accusations of bias, bigotry, etc, and have had varying degrees of success. The less successful ones have helped make the phrase a tad controversial, if only by association.

association. One point raised against it, for example [[http://www.bluecorncomics.com/offender.htm here]], is that there are far more identifiable groups of humans than anyone could have time to offend. By selecting [[ChurchOfHappyology Scientologists]] or [[FieryRedhead redheads]] for mockery and overlooking plumbers or right-handed people, the show is being less than "equal". In response, one could argue that certain groupings are naturally associated with certain stereotypes to begin with and it's not the show's fault that those prior groupings, however arbitrary they may be, are the ones that come to our minds as the "sides" in question.
