Well, here's one you won't like. Sometime in the 1960's, there was a televised concert in the UK of a charity bash called something like "SOS - Stars Organisation for Spastics". One of the stars was Rolf Harris, who sang his current ditty "I'm Jake the peg, with the extra leg".
Even in those relatively less-enlightened times, I remembered my jaw falling at the insensitivity.
