-->"Miss Granger," Professor Quirrell said gravely, "it can be dangerous to give people compliments like that when they have not been truly earned. The recipient might feel bashful and undeserving and want to do something worthy of your praise..."

* In ''Literature/AtlasShrugged'', a liberal reporter who doesn't like the way he operates his bank, calls banker Michael Mulligan by the supposzed slur of "Midas Mulligan" because of Mulliugan's ability to make money on his bank's investments - as opposed to making investments for socially worthy purposes which might not be profitable - and the nickname sticks to him. Mulligan likes it so much he has his name legally changed to Midas Mulligan.

* In 2012, Papa Johns and texbook distributor Chegg sponsored a "VHS-Storytelling Contest", promising a concert by ''Creator/TaylorSwift'' to the winner. Some [[{{Troll}} wise-guy group of Swift-haters]] on the website 4Chan pulled a stunt that hijacked the contest, awarding the prize to the Horace Man School for the Deaf, a daycare center for hearing impaired children, the insinuation being only kids who couldn't hear could appreciate her music. When the prank was uncovered, the School had to be disqualified due to fraudulent voting, but Swift got the last laugh and then some, because the rather public incident earned the school $50,000 worth of donations from fans, $10,000 of it from Swift herself.

* Combined with adding insult to injury, after former House Speaker John Boehner told Ted Cruz off on the air, calling him "Lucifer in the flesh", a representative for the Satanic Temple took offense. [[http://www.aol.com/article/2016/04/30/satanists-want-nothing-to-do-with-ted-cruz-even-if-he-is-lucif/21368272/#confab-comment-29325088 They certainly want nothing to do with Cruz either.]]
