* DudeNotFunny: Once everyone realised they weren't Nazi propaganda, this was the general reaction to the Nazi radio broadcasts...



* ValuesDissonance: The plot of ''Thank You Jeeves'' is dominated by Wooster "blacking up" with boot polish, and the terrified reactions of various staff to the "nigger devil".
** Then, of course, there were those monologues on the radio courtesy of ThoseWackyNazis...

* DudeNotFunny: While not the "enemy propaganda" his radio broadcasts were purported to be, a Britain suffering through the Blitz was in no mood for light-hearted farce about Wodehouse's Nazi captors.
** Well, yes and no. Most Englishmen never ''heard'' the broadcasts or saw transcripts of them until after the war. They had to rely on the Ministry of Information's characterization of the broadcasts, and their justifiable anger proceeded from false information. Many Britons (''e.g.'', Creator/DorothyLSayers) were dubious even at the time.
