** Pearlmutter does at least attempt to justify this trope by pointing out the strength of the cleaning solvents used in mortuary work, stating that the room was probably the most sterile in the city.

* Dr. Fatty in ''Comicbook/{{InspectorCanardo}}'' hasn't been shown eating the treats Canardo bribes him with during the autopsy but he did say that he drinks the alcoholic stomach content of people that are brought to him (autopsy is a lot like cuisine, you must taste all the sauce).

** In ''Film/JasonGoesToHellTheFinalFriday'', the second coroner who walks in on a Voorhees-possessed medical examiner is carrying a pizza, and was presumably intending to eat it right there in the autopsy room. In a slightly more literal sense from the same scene, one of the coroners doing said autopsy [[spoiler: eats the (miraculously still intact and beating) heart of Jason Voorhees, causing him to become inexplicably possessed by Jason, setting up the rest of the film.]]
* In the Creator/RobertAltman movie ''{{Pret-a-Porter}}'', a coroner has a snack while autopsying a corpse (in the presence of several police officers investigating the death, too!)

* In Robert Heinlein's ''Literature/TheNumberOfTheBeast'' an attempt by a hostile park warden to threaten and murder the four protagonists (two married couples) ends with two men congratulating each other on their successful use of swords to kill a man with a gun, and a woman noting that the man was clearly not human. This is followed by the fourth protagonist performing the autopsy while her new stepdaughter holds a sandwich for her to eat without touching it with green goo covered hands. Their valiant sword wielding menfolk avoid the room in a desperate attempt to retain their lunches.

--->'''Murdoch''': I see you aren't letting a decomposing corpse spoil your appetite.
--->'''Julia''': Certainly not! One can't perform an autopsy on an empty stomach.

''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'' episode "Who Done Did It?" features a coroner that eats a PB and J sandwich while still wearing his blood covered gloves. Junior of course sneaks a bite of the PB and J after the coroner sets it down remarking he's glad the J wasn't blood like he thought it might be.

* This used to be a common thing in the medical profession until the introduction of the aseptic technique by Drs. [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ignaz_Semmelweis Ignaz Semmelweiss]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Lister,_1st_Baron_Lister Joseph Lister]] in mid-XIX century. In fact, it was such an ingrained norm that Dr. Semmelweiss was essentially ''laughed out of profession''[[note]]Mainly because he came to that purely empirically and couldn't provide a theoretical explanation to that effect, exactly at the point of a time when the medicine tried to shed itself of the oldtimey "miracle cure" attiude, which Semmelweiss' "Dunno why, but it seems to work" resembled so much, his [[TheyCalledMeMad confrontational demeanor]] not helping the case. Only after [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Pasteur Louis Pasteur]] proposed the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germ_theory_of_disease germ theory of disease]], Lister was able to push with the aseptics, as it finally has had a theoretical basis.[[/note]] (and later [[KickTheDog beaten to death]] in an insane asylum) for insisting on such crazy things like washing one's hands between dissecting a corpse and attending to a newborn, despite the demonstrable ''tenfold'' decrease in the dreaded [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puerperal_infections puerperal fever]] in his hospital. Only after the much more influential Lister suggested basically the same, the notion took root.
