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 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", this is the trope in play.

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]].

In a Creator/RogerEbert Movie Glossary column, he defines 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.

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 traumatic events in future editions of a work or in [[RealitySubtext real life]]. When someone says that a bit of comedy has been "overtaken by events", this is the trope in play.

Or, if you prefer, it's the moment when [[BuffySpeak the funny]] drops down dead. A "funny aneurysm" is an oxymoron since having an aneurysm isn't funny.[[note]]An aneurysm is an area on the wall of a blood vessel, that balloons with blood, and can lead to death.[[/note]]

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 made before 2001 set in New York simply featuring the World Trade Center, whether in establishing shots or as part of the plot but not involving their destruction, is not an example of either.[[/note]]

If this is done ''intentionally'', this trope becomes a CerebusRetcon.

Or, if you prefer, it's the moment when [[BuffySpeak the funny]] drops down dead. A "funny aneurysm" is an oxymoron since having an aneurysm isn't funny; it's both and neither.[[note]]An aneurysm is a weakened blood vessel in the brain that balloons with blood, which creates pressure on brain tissue and also risks rupture, causing neurological dysfunctions.[[/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.
