* {{Pirates}} are often depicted with peglegs or hooks, though this may be more to reinforce their [[{{Badass}} badassery]] than villainy.

* In one episode of ''[[Radio/TrueCapitalist True Capitalist Radio]]'', Ghost considers dwarfism "a punishment from God", and that people with it are held in such indifference that if he murdered one, the cops wouldn't care. When he saw the chatroom's reaction to this, [[JustJokingJustification he downplayed his statements as a joke]], as though he didn't understand the implications of what he just said. For long-time listeners, this was simply another reason to {{troll}} him.

Some of these targets are no longer popular. In some cases, [[DecadeDissonance times have changed]], and what was funny in 1935 simply is not funny now. More importantly perhaps, changed economic and political circumstances have transformed some previously-despised target groups into valuable demographics that it is unwise to antagonise. Some feel, particularly those who would prefer to go on picking on these Once Acceptable Targets, that these changes can be "blamed" on PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad. BlackComedy will laugh at Once Acceptable Targets as much as possible with the express purpose of causing a hostile reaction.

To be more precise, common soldiers were often the butt of jokes in the UK and other parts of Europe during the 17-19th century period, compared to dogs, had jokes made about "selling themselves for a shilling" being uneducated, etc. The trend was in decline for a long time but was killed off fairly conclusively by the world wars, when [[AcceptableInevitableTargets practically everyone was either in the military or was close to someone who was]].

In addition, post-VietnamWar veterans in the United States were derided by war protesters for fighting in the war (although nowhere near as much as many of the pro-war people would have you believe), and were shunned by the older generation for "losing" the war. Nowadays, even with the unpopularity of the Iraq War, which opponents endeavor to emphasize the blame on the politicians who gave the original orders to the military in the first place, the American public at large has been consistent with its support and gratitude of combat troops, and most Vietnam veterans are getting the recognition they deserve. The transition to an all-volunteer and high-tech military, with which many people enlist to further their educations, also did away with old presumptions that soldiers weren't all that smart.
