Follow TV Tropes
I recently added this edit to the page, but somebody deleted it.
the reason that they gave was
"They seemed to have adopted it out of spite rather then being clever."
I don't understand how this example is any different than the other Real Life examples
what's with this? Allergy on xD&D?
Daft punk, anyone?
An example of insult backfire that doesn't seem to be in the "Western Animation" list would be from a Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon named Sat AM; in the episode Super Sonic, after Bunnie tries to free Sally but instead gets shot with some sort of paralyzing ray by one of Robotnik's robots.
Sally: You are a miserable creep, Robotnik.
Robotnik: Why thank you, princess.
EDIT: I think I may as well go ahead and add it.
