** Speaking of the dead parrot sketch, Cleese has said they made sure to use an animal that "everyone hates," as otherwise the audience would feel sorry for it.

** Eric Idle's character in "The Architect Sketch" presents a model of a high-rise apartment that catches fire mid-speech. The planners approve it anyway. A hilarious show of ineptitude? Maybe. But in the wake of the Grenfell disaster...

** Eric Idle's character in "The Architect Sketch" presents a model of a high-rise apartment that catches fire as he's presenting it. Hilariously inept? Maybe less so after the Grenfell disaster...

* CrossesTheLineTwice: Many times, most notably with two sketches involving cannibalism. The BBC only agreed to air the infamous "Undertaker" sketch was if the audience stormed the stage at the end.

**
The BBC only agreed "Sam Peckinpah's ''Salad Days''" sketch, which takes LudicrousGibs to air even more ludicrous levels. Unsurprisingly, given it contains [[HighPressureBlood (literal) fountains of gore]] resulting from people getting dismembered, being impaled on tennis rackets and having their hands ripped off by a piano keyboard cover closing on them, it generated large numbers of complaints.
** "Undertakers Sketch",
the infamous "Undertaker" final sketch of series 2, also pushes the envelope of tastelessness in classic Creator/GrahamChapman style. The sketch features a discussion between an undertaker and a customer of how to dispose of the latter's mother's corpse, to the sounds of an increasingly vocal shocked and disgusted audience, who storm the stage after the notorious final line.
-->'''Undertaker''': Look, we'll eat your mum. Then, if you feel a bit guilty about it afterwards, we can dig a grave and you can throw up into it.
** The thing that clinched the sketch as this trope is that the invasion of the stage
was if itself ''arranged'' to get this sketch past the BBC censor, who felt that only the implicit apology of the apparent audience revolt would make it acceptable. It's also noticeable in the film that only about 50% of the audience stormed had been enlisted to boo and invade the stage stage- the rest are clearly seen laughing.
** "Undertakers Sketch" was mentioned by John Cleese during Chapman's eulogy, which itself massively pushes the bounds of taste in homage to Chapman, who Cleese described during it as the "prince of bad taste".
-->'''Cleese''': Graham Chapman, co-author of the 'Parrot Sketch,' is no more. He has ceased to be, bereft of life, he rests in peace, he has kicked the bucket, hopped the twig, bit the dust, snuffed it, breathed his last, and gone to meet the Great Head of Light Entertainment in the sky. And I guess that we're all thinking how sad it is that a man of such talent, of such capability for kindness, for such unusual intelligence, a man who could overcome his alcoholism with such truly admirable single-mindedness, should now so suddenly be spirited away
at the end.age of only forty-eight before he'd achieved many of the things in which he was capable, and before he'd had enough fun. Well, I feel that I should say: nonsense. Good riddance to him, the freeloading bastard, I hope he fries. And the reason I feel I should say this is he would never forgive me if I didn't. If I threw away this glorious opportunity to shock you all on his behalf. Anything, for him, except mindless good taste.
