* InnocentlyInsensitive: During his rant about people who are against [[Creator/JodieWhittaker a woman]] being cast as [[Series/DoctorWho the Thirteenth Doctor]], Adam remarks that he's happy as long as she's "healthy, has ten fingers, ten toes and [[BizarreAlienBiology two hearts]]". The audience reacts uncomfortably, leading him to say "[[ComicallyMissingThePoint Why are you grumpy at that?! She's got two hearts!]]" He only realizes after he's done ranting that ''The Last Leg'' is ''maybe'' not the best show to say things like "I hope she has ten fingers and ten toes".



--> '''Josh:''' There was quite a lot of articles about The Last Leg last week, because Alex had interviewed the Deputy Prime Minister, and there was one in The Telegraph. It was all this stuff about Nick Clegg, and then - out of nowhere, no context - just a paragraph that said, "[[{{ItMakesSenseInContext}} And then the Deputy Prime Minister got a melon and threw it at the disabled Alex Brooker, who cut it with a blade on his leg]]." People must have been reading that going, "What the fuck is going on? What kind of TV show are they making?"

* PrecisionFStrike: Guests are often asked what they think of one of the subjects of the week, and tend to give long and detailed answers. Sometimes even the tamer guests manage to brilliantly underline the conclusions of their rants with a well placed F-Bomb, for example Creator/DavidMitchell [[https://youtu.be/m2q-Csk-ktc?t=3m10s when talking about tax evasion]] and Creator/BrianCox [[https://youtu.be/fLp0bwDMJ28?t=3m49s when talking about physics]].

* UnexpectedCharacter: InUniverse example; when Adam announced at the end of an episode that next week's guest would be former US Vice President Al Gore, he was clearly genuinely astonished and quite seriously said that he was sure Gore had no idea what kind of show he was going on.
