* [=EMTs=] and paramedics fall under similar protections, and in some cases criminals who thought they were targeting police officers were horrified to discover they had accidentally attacked the [=EMTs=] who were there to help them. In some particularly rough areas they wear bulletproof vests with EMS clearly stamped on the front to avoid this sort of thing.

* Once again averted in ''[[Radio/TrueCapitalist True Capitalist Radio]]''. A broadcast of the show was interrupted when Ghost's dog, Templeton, chewed on the wires and electrocuted himself. While Templeton didn't receive any injuries, the trolls were sure to [[NeverLiveItDown exploit this]] so Ghost would have another thing to be upset about.

* Moon landing conspiracy theorists have fallen to the bottom of the conspiracy theory hierarchy in recent years, making the holdouts appear even more detached than the norm. One such theorist, Bart Sibrel, approached Buzz Aldrin and broached the subject. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wcrkxOgzhU Buzz... respectfully disagreed with his opinion.]] We mean [[MomentOfAwesome he punched the conspirator in the face]]. Mr. Sibrel tried to press charges and the judge dismissed the case after seeing the video, ruling it was self defense, and taking into account that Sibrel wasn't actually injured (just bruised and publically humiliated).

Although it was OK to say negative things about them at the time they were active, they have become completely sacred after the assassination of Music/JohnLennon. Nowadays, even saying that they're only "okay" will cause a massive backlash. That being said, insults directed towards John Lennon are acceptable as long as they have to do with his private life (such as the fact that he was such an abhorrent parent that its insulting to compare him to AbusiveParents and that he regularly beat his wife), saying that the band made a few bad albums and that the band is overrated.

overrated can also be done, but that is the limit.

* A lot of Soviet movies/animation get this treatment, accompanied by NostalgiaFilter. Don't even try to question the morals behind movies or consider them outdated. Also don't even try to suggest a possibillity, that a comedian funnier than Nikulin-Vitsyn-Margunov trio may exist, just don't.

Many regions love mocking them to death for being out of touch with society and for having no social life at all (such as the US and UK), but in other regions (such as Flanders) insulting them for those reasons is going to get you labeled as someone who is jealous at best and anti-social at worst. This is because in those regions high notes are seen as an important value and a guarantee for later success at life.

[[AC: Real Life}}:
* Dignitaries from many countries attended trhe state funeral of Emperoro Hirohito, Japan's wartime emperor, on February 24th 1989. Queen Elizabeth II of Britain made a diplomatic excuse as to why she could not attend, and deliberately sent her husband Prince Philip to represent Britain. Philip is known for his controversial remarks and non-politically-correct attitudes. He is also a veteran of [=WW2=} and is president of many ex-servicemens' associations, including one for survivors of Japanese prison camps. When the coffin of the Emperor passed the foreign dignitaries and many were bowing so far they were prostrating themselves, Philip very deliberately made the barest, most absolutely minimal, inclination of the head that could have been taken for a formal bow of respect. [[note]]his opinion that Hirohito was as much of a war criminal as many other Japanese leaders, and should have been hanged, is well known.[[/note]]. The Queen declining her invitation, and instead sending a husband known to despise the Japanese wartime generation, ''and'' that perfunctory disrespect to the deceased, caused a minor diplomatic rupture. But it was almost as if everything had been carefully thought out in advance to deliver an unmistakeable two-fingered gesture to the wartime Japanese leadership from the daughter of the wartime British King... the Japanese were insulted. The British laughed.
