* In the web video [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2t_H0jYNZiY Esther with Hot Chicks]], comedian Esther Povitsky interviewed model Cailin Russo:
-->'''Esther''': Cailin, how can I be hot like you?
-->'''Cailin''': [''Pauses, stares at Esther as if stuck for an answer''] Uuuum, well...everyone is hot, you know, everyone is beautiful in their own way, and it's really just the inner beauty that--
-->'''Esther''': How does it feel knowing that you're so pretty that no-one cares what you say?

* ''Theatre/HarryPotterAndTheCursedChild'': Harry [[spoiler:transfigured as Voldemort]] tells [[spoiler:Voldemort's daughter Delphi]] that he although he sees certain similarities to Bellatrix in her face, she hasn't inherited the best of her. It's difficult to tell whether this is a stealth insult toward [[spoiler:Delphi]] or Bellatrix.

* ''VideoGame/PunchOut'' on ''{{Wii}}'' which [[AffectionateParody Affectionately Parodies]] the nationality of every boxer in the game, jabs at Japan this way with Piston Hondo. He's shown to be the most stereotypical Japanese super-warrior who trains by catching swords and ''outrunning bullet trains'', yet he's merely the lowest ranked boxer of the 2nd circuit who can't defeat the lumberjack who trains by [[CanadaEh chopping down trees and guzzling maple syrup.]]

* Doubly subverted by Music/MikeOldfield in Amarok. Richard Branson had been demanding that Oldfield created a hit in the same vein of Tubular Bells, much to his annoyance. He therefore made a [[EpicRocking sixty-minute whopper]] which could not easily sampled into a radio-friendly version. More to the point of the trope, at a certain moment one may hear a strident keyboard type a message in Morse code which spells "F-U-C-K O-F-F R-B".

* An unusual example from Music/MikeOldfield: his relationship with Virgin Records went sour after Richard Branson repeatedly demanded that he wrote a new hit, a la Tubular Bells. This lead him to create Amarok, an album with a single [[EpicRocking sixty-minute whopper]] intentionally designed so no samples could be easily edited. And more to the point of this trope, one may hear at a certain moment a dissonant but subtle keyboard typing "FUCK OFF RB" in Morse code.

-->'''Bitsy''': ''[laughs]''
-->'''Betsy''': [[LampshadeHanging Why you laughin', Bits? He just said we stink!]]

* Used in [[http://megatokyo.com/index.php?strip_id=234 this]] ''WebComic/{{Megatokyo}}'' strip, when Seraphim insults Asmodeus by saying "My partner's far sexier than you are", and he's still smiling because he thinks he's still up there. Little to his knowledge, the partner is [[BaldursGate Boo]].

* While you'd be [[BlatantLies hard pressed]] to find insults in ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus]]'', the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxXW6tfl2Y0 "Oscar Wilde Sketch"]] was comprised of Wilde and others lampooning the king, claiming it to be a quote of one of the others. Each one miraculously manages to turn them into compliments, though only the king seems oblivious.
