There is also HarsherInHindsight, where a scene that's already tragic becomes worse because of RealitySubtext or more recent canon. A joke about jumbo jets hitting skyscrapers published before 2001 will likely be a "Funny Aneurysm" Moment; a ''serious'' plotline about jumbo jets hitting skyscrapers that was published before 2001 is HarsherInHindsight. [[note]]A work set in New York simply featuring the World Trade Center, whether in establishing shots or as part of the plot, is not an example of either.[[/note]]

Compare TooSoon, when the moment ends up being censored or removed because of a tragedy; LifeImitatesArt; HarsherInHindsight, when the original moment is not necessarily funny or lighthearted, but becomes even less so in light of later events; HaveAGayOldTime, when an innocuous word takes a different meaning due to changes in common vocabulary; UnintentionalPeriodPiece, when a work was intended to be timeless but the era in which it was made is easily distinguishable due to later events.

This often has to do with a character or actor's death and is named for a line from the ''[[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]]'' episode "The Freshman" in which Buffy hopes that her mother will have a "''funny'' aneurysm" when she sees the cost of Buffy's college textbooks. Please see the FunnyAneurysmMoment/LiveActionTV page for the full example.

''Note: since all actors and creators are mortal, if someone mentions death or plays a character who dies, and then die themselves, that's not a "Funny Aneurysm" Moment unless there's some connection to the circumstances of the death.''

This is when a scene, joke, or offhand line that was originally meant to be funny or light-hearted makes the viewer cringe when it is seen in reruns due to the traumatic events in future episodes of a show or in [[RealitySubtext real life]]. When someone says that a bit of comedy has been "overtaken by events", this is the trope in play.
