Arson Murder And Jaywalking: New Media
  • College Humor:
    • In an episode of Bleep Bloop, the 'Phantom of the Office' pays a visit and lists his favorite games as follows "Let me see, hoop stick, drown the cat, drown the rat, hobble the goat, and frogger, frogger was hard!"
    • In the "The Problems with Jeggings Continues" sketch, Mr. S lists off innappropriate articles of clothing that will not be allowed in class, such as "NO cellophane hoodies, NO bra cardiagns, NO U-Neck T-shirts, NO Hollister CLOTHES!"
  • This Meme has the main character reading up the demands of the kidnapper, but the thing that bothers him the most is the spelling errors.
  • The Salvation War: The commander of the sub that nuked Tel Aviv finally wakes up in Hell and is informed of the charges against him: " Captain Alex Ben-Shoshan, commanding officer of the Israeli Navy Submarine Tekuma. You are charged with crimes against humanity, treason against the human race, one hundred and fifty three thousand, six hundred and twenty counts of murder in the first degree and failing to complete your navigation logs."
  • Zero Punctuation on Batman: Arkham Asylum: "I could go on about how the combat flows, and how the atmosphere is solid, and how the highlights for me were the Scarecrow sections where Batman's perceptions of reality askew in favor of a nightmareish and respectively delusional glimpse into the darkest pretenses of his soul, and how jumping on people is cool"
    • From a recap on Wet: "Which played like mixing every bad idea from the past ten years in a blender then drinking it from a puch fashioned from a hollowed out ballsack. Soundtrack was good, though."
    • From his review of Saints Row IV, complaining about Australian censorship of the game: "Wouldn't want people to mimic irresponsible behavior like shooting fire out of their bare hands, or leaping twelve stories into the air, or going into politics."
  • Likes: Blood, death, knives, psycos' [sic], pointy objects, Green Day, and... staying up all night.
  • One possible XK-class end-of-the-world scenario from the SCP Foundation involves the proposed SCP-001 (the guardian to the Garden of Eden) moving, confluent with the breaching of the "Infinite Devil Machine" SCP-995, the opening of the hellish door SCP-616 and the activation of SCP-098... which is apparently a bunch of safe-ish crustaceans. It has been theorised, however, that the last one is a cover-up for something so horrifying that not even the usual deluge of [DATA EXPUNGED] and blacked-out text allows it to be safely mentioned.
    • SCP-048 is a number which was retired from the catalog and no longer assigned due to misfortunes befalling every item it was assigned to. It mentions that personel working with items assigned the number "have had a 50% higher rate of turnover due to death, dismemberment, and disciplinary action."
  • Songun Blog, which is a parody of North Korean propaganda practices claims America is "filled with unemployment, foreclosures, crime, drugs, prostitution, murder and jaywalking."
  • Parodied in part one of The Claire Floogin Movie.
  • This list of "Ghetto Names".
  • There exists a website called kids-in-mind.com which gives detailed ratings on any possibly objectionable material in films. Anything that could (ir)rationally be called offensive is listed. Take for instance, Law Abiding Citizen, a film that scored a 9/10 in violence thanks to people being dismembered, blown up, incinerated, poisoned, suffocated, raped, and stabbed. The icing on the violence cake? "Two men eat food using their fingers."
    • One of only four examples listed for Sex and Nudity was "A man and his wife kiss in several scenes." possibly not knowing that married couples do that sometimes.
  • In Open Blue, the Axifloan Coalition lists various crimes that various Pirate Lords and ladies are wanted for. While some have pretty serious lists throughout, others... not so much. From v4's Pirate Lord list: Pirate Lady Lucille Prideux's list ends with "Theft in general" while Captain Van Wijk's ends with "Blasphemy" (which is pretty light compared to his other crimes). The real cake takers, however, are Captain Garth, with "Unlicensed operation of a menagerie", and Captain Ingrid, with "Insulting Admiral Flota Vladimir Ilyavich Tokarev, HERO OF THE TRIBES".
  • The Angry Video Game Nerd spent 30 seconds solid insulting TMNT on the NES with some of the most vile profanities in the history of the English language, concluding with: "It fucking sucks, it sucking fucks, it fucking blows, it's a piece of shit... and I don't like it."
    • He did it again with Deadly Towers: "This game is a chicken-licking-finger-fucking son of a bitch! This game is ball-cider! The Assholians bow down to this piece of shit! In other words, the game sucks."
  • Something Awful's review of Grand Theft Auto IV in the style of Jack Thompson notes a (fake) scene where the player carjacks and stabs a family driving to church, then notes that the in-game vehicles have no turn signals.
  • Protectors of the Plot Continuum: PPCers often start out the chargelist with things like grammar and spelling errors, move on to bigger charges like "disrupting the fabric of reality", and end with things like "having a stupid name", "pissing off PPC agents", etc. An example is Acacia's addendum in This Mission. Another had a character charged with rape, child abuse, and "having an annoyingly complicated house to navigate".
  • From part one of the Werewolf Prevention Guide, "You may remember me from such videos as Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse, Protecting you and your family from Vampires & Advanced Billiards Tutorial."
  • In one episode of Atop the Fourth Wall, Linkara rattles off a list of evil robots, which includes The Terminator and Robbie The Robot.
  • When the Cornette Face from Botchamania became an Ascended Meme, a short video was made describing it's purpose. It pulls this trope twice.
    First debuting in Botchamania 84, the Cornette Face has been used to summarize the emotions brought on by insane booking decisions, complete disregard of basic wrestling principles, and late WCW Kevin Nash matches. The bad wrestling featured alongside the Cornette Face is made to look worse than it already is, as it appears that the footage has shocked Cornette to the point where he cannot even move. He is powerless to move. He is powerless to rant. He is powerless to spit on Eric Bischoff's windshield.
    • It also dips into this in video 121. "Blind Ref?! Deaf Ref?! Stupid Ref?! Mullet Ref?! FUCK THIS COMPANY!"
  • Many people on Current Events say there is a special place in Hell for child molesters, murderers, and people who upload multi-part files to Rapidshare.
  • Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog:
    Dr. Horrible All the cash! All the fame! And social change!
    • Also
    Penny(after noticing Billy isn't listening to her) Our goal is to get these people off the streets and into job training so they can build rockets and go to the moon and become florists...
  • The Nostalgia Chick's review of top movie villains included captions listing the various characters' prosecutable crimes. Amid such offenses as "Treason", "Manslaughter", "Conspiracy to Genocide" and the like are occasional mentions of "Littering" (discarding a bone from dinner) or "Animal Cruelty" (squashing bugs).
  • On the Something Awful forum thread that started The Slender Man Mythos someone made this comment:
    Thanks to this thread I now hate trees, windows, and tall people.
  • In the College Humor video Duck Hunt: Behind the Scenes, the dog describes formula RD-601 (used to punish players who cheat the games) as such:
    Duck Hunt Dog: It's a mixture of crystal meth, jet fuel and Pixie Sticks.
  • From the maker of Charlie The Unicorn, Llamas with Hats:
    Paul: Carl, I watched you fire a harpoon into the captain's face!
    Carl: That sounds dangerous!
    Paul: You were headbutting children off the side of the ship!
    Carl: That, uh, that must have been horrifying to watch.
    Paul: And then you started making out with the ice sculptures!
    Carl: Thank God that the children weren't on board to see it!
    • With the fourth episode the openings themselves become an example. The first begins with Paul finding a dead human in their house, the second with Carl sinking a cruise-ship, the third with Carl overthrowing a South-American Goverment, and in the fourth... He drags mud all over the carpet. It Got Worse.
    • Sort of a reverse example, from another of his videos, "Ferrets", in which two ferrets are talking in a valley. The one on the left, Harold exclaims how sad he is, so the other one on the right insists that whenever he's feeling down, he sings about things that make him happy. He then breaks into song, and starts listing off happy things to make Harold happy. The first things he sings are okay, like "the feel of a dollar bill", but the song quickly gets dark, when he starts singing about "the fresh smell of blood", and "touching Harold inappropriately while he sleeps".
  • Wikipedia is pretty rife with this:
    • According to her Wikipedia page, after Boudica's husband died, his will was ignored. The kingdom was annexed as if conquered, Boudica was flogged and her daughters raped, and Roman financiers called in their loans.
    • On the Wikipedia page for sleep deprivation, there's an image that lists the effects, some of which are irritability, cognitive impairment, memory lapses or loss, impaired moral judgement, hallucinations, and severe yawning.
    • On the Wikipedia page for the SS: "Members of labor organizations and those perceived to be affiliated with groups (religious, political, social and otherwise) that opposed the regime...were rounded up in large numbers; these included clergy of all faiths, Jehovah's Witnesses, Freemasons, Communists, and Rotary Club members."
    • On the Wikipedia page for the Malleus Maleficarum: "The Malleus Maleficarum accuses witches of infanticide, cannibalism, casting evil spells to harm their enemies, and having the power to steal mens penises". Granted, some (roughly half) of the population may feel that the last is the most horrific thing ever, but still.
    • From Wikipedia's article on Bert Is Evil:
      "The website featured manipulated images of the puppet consorting with nefarious figures including Adolf Hitler, Osama bin Laden, and Jerry Springer."
    • The video for The Bloodhound Gang's "The Bad Touch" inspired this bit on Wikipedia:
    The video reached #11 on MuchMusic's 50 Most Controversial Videos for references to zoophilia, sexual lyrics, insulting French people, gay people and chefs.
    • Everything but the last one kind of works, but chefs...?
  • The website Encyclopedia Dramatica has a page called "Offended", devoted to the most obscene and disgusting pictures found on the Internet. After literally ''dozens'' of horrible pictures, it ends by showing George W. Bush.

    I'm gonna kill him, I'm gonna rape him, I'm gonna eat his fucking costume...
  • Cracked loves this.

  • In Bowser's Kingdom episode 666, Jeff tries to warn Hal about the Zombies by describing what makes them dangerous. Hal is aloof to what Jeff is saying, but Jeff says they called Hal gay. Hal is indignant and the two set off on a zombie hunt.
    Jeff: There's a bunch of dead guys walking around eating people.
    Hal: So?

Virus = Very Yes", to which he shouts, "That's not a good prize!" But when the monitor dissolves into a blue liquid and splashes onto the floor, he says, "...aaaand the compy just peed the carpet" in a unsurprised fashion that borders on monotone.
