The inverse of this, where something in real life or more recent canon retroactively makes a lighthearted moment ''funnier'', is HilariousInHindsight. Depending on how dark your sense of humor is (particularly your attitudes towards BlackComedy and GallowsHumor), a "Funny Aneurysm" Moment could [[ActuallyPrettyFunny actually be funny]] in a twisted way.

A "funny aneurysm" moment is when a scene, joke, or offhand line that was originally meant to be funny or lighthearted becomes cringeworthy due to the unfortunate and/or traumatic events in future installments/episodes of a work or in [[RealitySubtext real life]]. When someone says that a bit of comedy has been "overtaken by events", it is this that is in play.

''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 which was originally PlayedForLaughs.''

In addition, an unfortunate moment or event that temporary occurs in real life can be considered a "funny aneurysm" moment if a work contains some kind of reference of the event beforehand.''

In a Creator/RogerEbert Movie Glossary column, he defined the (related) [[RealitySubtext Pentimento Paradigm]]: "Pentimento is when images from an old painting seep through and become visible in a newer picture that has been painted over the old. Thus the relation is when what we know about a filmmaker or actor seeps into our perception of his film work. Example: Any old Rock Hudson movie now that his private life is no longer private. Being aware of the reality behind the fiction may add to the complexity of the drama (Taylor and Burton in ''Theatre/WhosAfraidOfVirginiaWoolf'') or distract from its intentions (Woody and Mia in ''Film/HusbandsAndWives'')." The Rock Hudson and ''Husbands and Wives'' examples are definitely "Funny Aneurysm" Moments.

There is also HarsherInHindsight, where a scene that's already tragic becomes even worse due to RealitySubtext or more recent canon. A joke about jumbo jets hitting skyscrapers in works made prior to the attacks at the World Trade Center in New York, New York on September 11, 2001 will likely be a "Funny Aneurysm" Moment; a serious plotline about jumbo jets hitting skyscrapers in works made prior to the attacks is HarsherInHindsight.[[note]]While it is cringeworthy today, the World Trade Center appearing in a work made prior to the attacks is not an example of this unless there is some sort of reference of the towers being attacked.[[/note]]

Contrast HilariousInHindsight, HeartwarmingInHindsight. Not be confused with SugarWiki/FunnyMoments - which is essentially the opposite, unless a recent event turns it into this.

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