** [[http://www.grudge-match.com/History/popstars.shtml The Circus Maximus of the Pop Stars]] is absolutely pouring with Britney Spears hate, as well as the claim that all boy bands are the result of an attempt to clone Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio which went horribly, horribly wrong, and mention of the "obviously homosexual [Justin] Timberlake."

** Episode 7 of the same series has a sniper round loaded for ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' RuleThirtyFour and the FurryFandom, courtesy of [[EvenEvilHasStandards Zorin's disgust]] with having to use an illusion of the titular mascot with [[GagPenis a foot-long erection]] to create the opening she needed.

** ''Fate of the Furious'' breaks, and later ''[[UpToEleven kills]]'', the sins counter.



** In their sin of [[TakeThatMe themselves]] they (while showing the tweets) point out that they've pissed off ''Creator/RianJohnson'' and ''Damon Lindelof, but that ''Creator/DaneCook'' and ''Creator/KevinSmith'' are "on their side". Then count this as a sin.

** Bryson has also been known to direct these at other things when he felt like it. For example, he once remarked that the horse playing Series/MrEd apparently "wrote most of his own material".

* In the days after deadly shootings in Colorado Springs and San Bernadino, the ''[[UsefulNotes/AmericanNewspapers New York Daily News]]'' spent the next few days devoting its front covers to venting its frustrations about GOP lawmakers who won't do anything about gun control and the National Rifle Association for its apparent stranglehold over Congress, going as far as to label NRA vice president Wayne [=LaPierre=] a terrorist. These covers received criticism from gun rights advocates, conservatives, and those who felt they simply [[DudeNotFunny went too far]]. In response, the December 7, 2015 edition had [[https://twitter.com/NYDailyNews/status/673691056207175682 this]] as its cover cover.

* Early in the 2017 [[UsefulNotes/CollegiateAmericanFootball college football]] season, Oklahoma convincingly defeated Ohio State in a battle of top-5 teams on Ohio State's home field. Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield celebrated by planting an OU flag in the middle of OSU's midfield logo. The "Take That!" came a few weeks later, after Iowa State scored a stunning upset at Oklahoma (the Cyclones' first win in Norman since 1990). Cyclones defensive back Evrett Edwards planted Iowa's state flag in the middle of OU's logo. Bonus points: [[http://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/sports/football/2017/10/07/iowa-state-flag-plant-gives-mayfield-oklahoma-taste-their-own-medicine-following-upset/743040001/ This story]] from Iowa's main newspaper, ''The Des Moines Register'', flat-out invokes this trope.
