The chessboard in this trope image, like a ridiculously high percentage of chessboards in TV and movies, is set up wrong. The white square is always on the right.

Someone needs to make a trope about chessboards being set up wrong in TV and movies. At one point, I was convinced that people were setting them up wrong intentionally either as a running gag, like the car crashing into the vegetable cart, or that the universe was doing this just to annoy me. But I have since come to the conclusion that people are just idiots.

Just out of curiosity, why is this YMMV? It doesn't seem very ambiguous to me.

Because it relies on Audience Opinion that something extremely offensive is funny.

I am trying to decide if this line in the Looking for Group part is Natter:

  • And yet, despite all of this, he's become Lawful Good (sometimes Chaotic Good) Cale's best friend. Richard even killed a smurf and made Cale a wallet from its hide.

It does seem like it contributes something, but it doesn't really seem related enough to me. Nonetheless, I'm not cutting it without making sure that it is.

Could someone explain the image?

It looks to be a 9/11 chess board, I'd say. I could be wrong, though.

This might be an in-universe example, but from Cleveland Show, Cleveland and friends are about to get raped by some dudes when Peter show up to save them together with the crazy monkey and both saved the day, Peter then says than that is what make his show different from Cleveland's, in Peter's they would got raped and then all would be singing a song of what just happen, and Cleveland would just be the black guy. What do you think?

I'm gonna have to take it upon myself to add Eminem to the music Section.

Give me feedback, is it okay to post this:
  • The Death Panda, a brutal piece of pornographic gorn by infamous guro artist Waita Uziga. By starting Up to Eleven and going on from there, it has the humorous appeal of slasher movies. And the main perpetrator is a demonic panda.

When I say a raping and maiming and devouring panda from hell is funny in it's offensiveness and exaggeration, I mean it. It is rather hilarious. But how is it with the standards on this wiki? Is this going to far to mention? When an example alludes to, but does not describe in detail what happens, is it okay to post it?

That image— I see "crosses the line". And that's all I see.

Yeah, I don't see how that qualifies as "twice".

I suppose a joke involving "long pork" would count as this trope, right? Along with the author joking that they've represented such minorities as pyromaniacs, PTSD sufferers, schizo, borderline, dependent, cannibalism, and Asperger's Syndrome.

A joke involving "long pork" wouldn't count because there's no going beyond normal offensiveness. For it to qualify as this, it has to be so incredibly, unbelievably, shockingly offensive that it stops being Dude, Not Funny! and starts being hilarious again.

So does playing "Here Comes The Sun" by The Beatles in the background as an Ax-Crazy character goes on a Trigger Happy killing spree (and we're treated to some (semi)-gorey details of the victims being shot/burned/maimed/shrieking in terror) count? While Word of God insists that the song chosen totally fit the scene?

This trope is basically when something is so offensive that it's funny, right? Well I've seen this trope posted on works that don't fit that criteria AT ALL, with th trope linked here, but renamed something like "crosses the line so many times we've lost count" or somehting like that. But if it's extremely offensive, but not funny, than it's not this trope, right? Does that entitle me to delete it when it is listed on works that don't fit? I just feel the trope title is bieng misused is all.

This trope is highly subjective. A lot of the examples, to me, seem like just plain crossing the line. But it's a matter of opinion.

Why are there two images?
