* Trump's ability to horrify extends as far as South Sudan, it seems. When the Quartz website reported that Kiir's government, who has been accused by the UN of war crimes, torture, sexual violence, extrajudicial killings and the recruitment of child soldiers, was reported as endorsing Trump's candidacy for US President in 2016, a spokesperson for South Sudanís foreign ministry told Quartz: There is no truth to [the story regarding support for Trump] whatsoever.

* George V of the United Kingdom: "I may be uninspiring, but I'll be damned if I'm an alien!" in response to Creator/HGWells' remark that the British royal house of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (in addition to being a mouthful) was "uninspiring and alien." George V changed the name of the House to UsefulNotes/TheHouseOfWindsor, which it remains to this day. Considering how [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne relations were with Germany at the time]], he picked the right part to complain about.

This very popular comedy trope finds its way into TV shows and movies of almost every genre.

After being given a LongList [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech of their flaws]] [[ListOfTransgressions and transgressions]], a character responds by selecting one of the flaws, and saying "I am not (flaw)!", as if to imply that all the other flaws were all spot-on. For maximum comedic effect, offense is taken to the [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking mildest one in the list]], or the offendee has to ask the offender to repeat the one he's offended by ("Hey, I am NOT a... um, what was that last one again?") which insinuates that all of them may be accurate. Frequently, they'll be [[JustifiedTrope entirely justified]]. Despite the name, the character doesn't always pick the ''last'' one. If their BerserkButton comes up, it's going to offend them more than any other insult. Often used sarcastically with [[LovableRogue affable 'scoundrel' characters]], and a staple of the DeadpanSnarker. Sometimes refuting the most easily refuted charge can discredit the whole string for an in story audience.

This can also be used for character exposition. The dragon may not care about being called a brute or a sadist, but be offended by being called a wimp.

A variation on this is for the character to claim that the string of insults is a half-truth, letting the viewer try to decide which parts are true or not. Occasionally inverted with a bullying character playing the JerkWithAHeartOfJerk card and "apologizing" for an insult in a way that degrades the insultee(s) more. For example, calling an entire group of people "pigs" and then saying: [[TakeThat "I'm sorry. I hope I didn't offend any pigs."]] Or calling someone "ugly" and, when an apology is demanded, saying: "Okay, I'm sorry you're ugly."
