* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Olenna Tyrell. And ''how''. This is how she got her nickname, the Queen of Thorns. She always says ''exactly'' what she thinks. Or at least projects this image. A reputation for brutal honesty makes it all the more easy to get away with lying.

* The "Old people conspiracy" sketch in the French satirical show ''Groland'' describes how old people pass the time by being as annoying as possible to youngsters (taking a lot of time in lines, occupying lifts, ...) in a very well organised way.

* Pat Cooper is in his 80s and refuses to hold back. He spent 22 years appearing on HowardStern and did not hesitate to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8V_xjCVpD80 ''explode'']] on him when he felt slighted. On a subsequent [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtdmduuYw8Q appearance]] on OpieAndAnthony he spent an entire hour slagging on Stern and several other targets. The hosts noted that they are likely the last professional connection he hasn't alienated and that it will only be a matter of time before he blows up on them as well.

** The scene was also adapted into a Polish advertisement for an insurance company. An older couple tank their car at a gas station, when a jeep full of rowdy teenagers pulls up. After several aggressive and provocative gestures towards the elders, one of the teenagers shouts "Gotta have flair, gramps!" The old man then rams his car into the jeep, before telling the shocked kid "Gotta have flair and money, sonny boy."

* Jack Donaghy's mother Colleen in ''[[Series/ThirtyRock 30 Rock]]'' once provoked a Buddhist monk into throwing a battery at her. She was such an overbearing, nagging harridan that Jack delayed calling an ambulance when he discovered she'd had a stroke. Though the implication was that she had always been that way and had not mellowed with age.

-->'''Edmure Tully''': ''[regarding Walder Frey]'' A few barbed words and some unseemly gloating. From ''him'', that's courtesy. I half-expected the old weasel to piss in our wine and make us praise the vintage.
