* KarmicMisfire: The 2010 bit "ComicStrip/{{Popeye}} the Savior Man" featured Anthony, Jimmy, and, to a much lesser extent, Patrice O'Neal, making jokes about Popeye as Jesus. Patrice even said during the bit that he didn't want to get involved because of the subject matter. Guess which of the three would suffer from and die of a stroke the following year?

And it's not like Anthony and Jimmy haven't had problems of their own since that bit.[[/note]]

* ThoseWackyNazis: Anthony has expressed his affinity for Nazi memorabilia, but he'll be quick to retort that he's "a fan of [[WorldWarII the era]]".

* HumiliationConga: For Opie following the breakup of ''Opie with Jim Norton'' in October 2016. First, following a disastrous attempt at renegotiating his contract, he loses his coveted morning spot to Jim and his former intern Sam Roberts much to his frustration. Then in January '17, Sirius XM renames the channel from ''Opie Radio'' to ''Faction Talk''. The following months see's the popularity and viewership of his afternoon show noticeably decline leading to stunts like Opie ambushing and filming one of his crew members in the bathroom. Not long after that, one of his producers calls him out and voices his frustrations with Opie's hypocritical behavior on the air. Finally in July 2017, following word that the crew member (who has mental issues) who was filmed in the bathroom had complained about the incident to HR, Sirius XM has officially confirmed that they had terminated their contract with Opie. So within the span of less than a year Opie lost his show, his channel and his maybe job. Ouch.
