Or, if you prefer, it's the moment when [[BuffySpeak the funny]] drops down dead. A "funny aneurysm" is an oxymoron since having an aneurysm isn't funny.[[note]]An aneurysm is a blood-filled balloon-like bulge in the wall of a blood vessel that can be fatal if it ruptures.[[/note]]

There is also HarsherInHindsight, where a scene that's already tragic becomes even worse due to later real life or canonical events. A joke about jumbo jets hitting skyscrapers in works made prior to 9/11 will likely be a "funny aneurysm" moment; a serious plotline about jumbo jets hitting skyscrapers in works made prior to 9/11 is harsher in hindsight.[[note]]While it is cringeworthy to think about it these days due to the tragedy, the World Trade Center appearing in a work made prior to 9/11 is not an example of this unless there is some sort of reference of the towers being attacked.[[/note]]

A "funny aneurysm" moment is when a scene, joke, or offhand line that was originally meant to be taken as funny or lighthearted becomes cringeworthy due to the unfortunate and/or traumatic events in future installments/episodes of a work or in real life. When someone says that a bit of comedy has been "overtaken by events," it is this that is in play.
