* Website/YouTube's captioning device (which is originally used for deaf people) qualifies when it has such word salad gems as "[[LegendsOfTheHiddenTemple I have a six-year-old and that may be headed for trouble]]", "[[Creator/AbbottAndCostello Fuck my sex life]]", "[[Anime/YuGiOh I designed this virtual stadium myself in prison]]", "[[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic Let me show you who's going to lose a lot of pot]]", "[[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd It's like you've given up on election day]]", and "[[Anime/SonicX My brain, you know it going to die]]" being around. These captions are considered SugarWiki/FunnyMoments, even if the video shown is supposed to be serious and/or not funny. It's even more hilarious when you find shows and video games that are mainly meant for a younger audience and they find naughty words like "[[VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn Sexy]]", "[[DonaldDuck Vaginally]]", "[[DonaldDuck S]][[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames h]][[KenanAndKel i]][[VideoGame/MarioParty t]]", "[[VideoGame/MarioParty Genitals]]", "[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Fuck]]", "[[VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry Cock]]", "[[Creator/{{Disney}} Asshole]]", and "[[{{Pokemon}} Faggot]]".

To show that Website/YouTube's captioning system has ''indeed'' left a mark on the Internet, one needs to look no further than ''[[EnsembleDarkhorse/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic "Steven]] [[Memes/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Magnet"]]'', a FanNickname given to a purple sea serpent that appeared in one episode ''because'' of the line given out during one of his scenes, ''and became his canon name''.

* Similarly, Eric "The Eel" Moussambani, a swimmer from Equatorial Guinea, qualified for the 2000 Summer Olympics through a wildcard draw designed to encourage developing countries lacking expensive training facilities to compete. He had never even seen a 50 metre pool before competing, having only taken up swimming eight months beforehand and having previously having trained in a 20 metre pool. In his qualifying heat, his two opponents were disqualified for jumping the gun, leaving Moussambani to compete on his own. He [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2teSx5xiRk&feature=related set the national record for Equatorial Guinea]] despite taking over a minute over the world record.
** Thing is, the swimming community considers people like Eric real heros, and not in a condescending way or in the way this trope calls them - his time WASN'T a failure. His time still is faster than could be done by well over 90% of the world's population, and it takes an enormous amount of work to do something like that from a place with NO support whatsoever. Unlike other "farcical" competitors, Eric and those like him in the past 4 Olympics don't qualify for this meme, because just competing like that is closer to MundaneMadeAwesome ; you'll notice the audience in the stands are cheering their hearts out, and it's not fake. More to the point: the coaches of the Men's USA and Australian teams lodged a formal complaint against the Australian news commentators shown (who were rebroadcast here in the USA), calling their commentary, quote "undignified, crass, mean-spirited, and unprofessional" unquote. In other words, DudeNotFunny.

** They openly admit during ''[[VideoGame/SonicBoom Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric]]'' that they ended up gleefully looking forward to the next time they get to play the [[ChristmasRushed clearly rushed]] and [[ObviousBeta barely cobbled together]] "glitch that is occasionally a game."

They also fondly mention in later reviews that the game was "the gift that kept on giving" and even considering to go back and do a second playthrough without using the [[GoodBadBugs Knuckles Jump]] to skip 80% of the game.

* In 2009, a privately-commissioned statue of Creator/LucilleBall was erected in her home town of Celoron, New York. The statue, which was created by local artist and depicts Ball as her famous character from ''Series/ILoveLucy'', quickly became notorious [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/sites/default/files/2015/04/lucille_ball_statue_a_l.jpg when local residents noticed it looked more like Frankenstein's monster than the famous comedian.]] Dubbed "Scary Lucy", the residents petitioned to have it taken down, but it became an internet sensation soon after. In 2016, a new statue by a different artist was erected in its place, this one looking much more like Lucy and members of the human race in general.

* Wrestling/MickFoley deliberately went for this while wrestling as Dude Love in order to separate the gimmick from his other personae (the sadistic Cactus Jack and the psychotic Mankind). It wasn't the first time he had done this. During his "anti-extreme" gimmick in Wrestling/{{ECW}} (a promotion that prided itself on high-quality, high-risk wrestling), Mick (as Cactus Jack) reduced his entire moveset to one move: a headlock. Thus, his matches would consist of nothing but ten straight minutes of assorted headlocks, gaining ''[[CheapHeat incredible]]'' [[CheapHeat heat]] from the quality-hungry ECW fans.

** Nowadays, Wrestling/LuchaUnderground ''[[InvokedTrope deliberately]]'' goes for a similar vibe to Wrestling Society X, and is somewhere between this and SoCoolItsAwesome depending on who you ask.

* The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statue_of_Lenin,_Seattle Lenin Statue of Freemont Washington]] is subject to this. Due to a convoluted sequence of events and the lack of a buyer, the revolutionary Communist propaganda statue ended up being installed in a neighbourhood in Seattle, in [[WhyWereBummedCommunismFell 1995]]. Locals dress it up with Christmas lights every holiday season, or dress it in drag for Pride Week.

*** For that matter, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2Aar_AHwpA The Great War]] needs to be mentioned as a continuation of the angle. Broken Matt and Brother Nero reconcile and team up to take on Decay (Crazzy Steve & Abyss) for the Tag Team Championship. Among other highlights, we get Reby Sky performing the Broken Hardyz theme (with Brother Nero on vocals!), Broken Matt's drone spraying Rosemary with poison mist, Matt Hardy spouting gibberish and throwing fire to ignite [[ICallItVera Janice (Abyss's 2x4 with nails sticking out)]], a "fan" challenging Abyss, only for Rosemary to [[CurbstompBattle kick the fan's ass in short order]], and Brother Nero [[SplitPersonality turning into several of his other previous personas]], as well as [[VisualPun attacking Crazzy Steve by smashing pumpkins into him.]]

* In ''Assignment2'', we read excerpts from main character Stanley Brown's novels, which are titled ''Lance MHS and His Adventures in Bigface's Castle Boat (With His Awesome Bass)'' and ''The Gift Horse Who Saved''. Both are ridiculously stupid, almost on MyImmortal levels. But without the eye-gouging spelling atrocities. A sample:
