* The Music/WeirdAl song "Eat It" opens with the lyrics "How come you're always such a fussy young man/Don't want no Captain Crunch, don't want no Raisin Bran/Well don't you know that other kids are starving in Japan/So eat it, just eat it."

" Keep in mind that, when this parody was written, Japan still was an economic superpower, so it's a parody of this way of thinking on top of that.

* In "Amy's Baking Company" on ''Series/KitchenNightmares'', one of the owners actually uses this when a customer complains about the food. Never mind that "Well, our food at least keeps you from starving" is a peculiarly low bar to clear for a professional eating establishment.
