* In ''[[Literature/TheRedVixenAdventures Captive of the Red Vixen]]'' Lord Rolas is punished after an escape attempt by having his diet reduced to [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nutraloaf "Prison Loaf"]].
--->'''Red Vixen:''' "[It] contains every bit of protein, vitamins and nutrients that a healthy adult needs for one day, and tastes like wet cardboard, or so I'm told."
--->(later)
--->'''Narration:''' As it turned out, the Red Vixen had been wrong about the prison loaf. Comparing it to wet cardboard was really a deep insult to the disposable packaging industry.

* Comparing anyone to the Westboro Baptist Church is literally an insult to everyone else. [[EveryoneHasStandards Jerry Falwell (who believed, like them, that gays caused 9/11) thought they went too far as well as the]] ''[[EveryoneHasStandards Ku Klux Klan]]''.

* In the book ''Elvenborn'' of ''Literature/TheHalfbloodChronicles'', Kyrtian and his bodyguard Gel are talking to the former’s mother via teleson (a magical device that works like Skype). Gel starts to refer to the rather unpleasant Lady Triana as a bitch before correcting himself out of deference to Lady Lydiell. She then says, “I wouldn’t call Triana a ‘bitch’, Gel. It’s a terrible insult to all female canines, which are, on the whole, rather nice creatures.”

** While reviewing ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', he noted how the first episode has a hover bike chase scene quite similar to the one found in ''Film/JudgeDredd''.
-->“Now, I would say this chase scene seems to copy the one from ''Judge Dredd'', but that would imply that people actually saw ''Judge Dredd''.”
:: :
However, he actually said he kind of enjoyed ''Judge Dredd'', so that may be just a jab on it flopping at the box office.

** In his review of Creator/MNightShyamalan's ''Film/TheLastAirbender'', he mocks the EvilOverlord's nonthreatening appearance:
-->It's like they grabbed a guy at the grocery store and dressed him up as [[Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian Biggus Dickus]]! Hell, ''Biggus Dickus'' is more intimidating than him! He at least is played by [[Creator/GrahamChapman an actor]] I know is dead, which kind of has the ghost value. It's more intimidating than this!

** Additionally, discussing ''Film/{{Ishtar}}'' on their Worst of ’87 special, Creator/GeneSiskel said, “I just saw ''Film/{{Road to}} Morocco'', and it is funnier than ''Ishtar'' — of course, that’s really, I guess, an insult to ''Road to Morocco''. Anything is funnier than ''Ishtar'' — except ''Film/LeonardPart6''.”

* Reviewer James Berardinelli on ''[[http://www.reelviews.net/movies/z/zombie.html Zombie! Vs. Mardi Gras]]'' (considered the worst movie he’s ever seen): “The film seems to have been [[JustForFun/XMeetsY inspired in equal parts by]] [[Film/LivingDeadSeries George Romero’s]] ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead1968'' and Creator/EdWood’s ''Film/Plan9FromOuterSpace''. The result is an embarrassment to both films. [[LampshadeHanging (When was the last time anything was described as]] [[DamnedByFaintPraise an embarrassment to Plan Nine??)]]”
