* An twentieth-century Chinese folktale tells the story of four friends who travel from China to America to better their lot and help their families. Three of the men are given jobs as a tailor, cobbler, and baker, while the fourth (who repeatedly told his friends to take the better jobs at his own expense) ends up as a personal assistant--and virtual slave--of a cruel, rich, gluttonous businessman who gives him countless thankless tasks for next to no money. One day, the rich man commands his servant to get him a new suit, new shoes, and delicious bread for a feast; his friends happen to run into the poor man, discover his pain, and immediately agree to provide the needed items for free. The suit and shoes are an absolute perfect fit, while the bread is so [[ImpossiblyDeliciousFood incredibly tasty]] that the rich man can't stop eating it. As he stuffs his face, he gradually swells up bigger and bigger--but his new clothes are so well-made that they won't tear or expand, which eventually makes him explode in a happy ending for all.

* ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'' investigated an UrbanLegend about this happening when one eats Pop Rocks and Cola, by feeding them into a pig's stomach mounted onto a model human skeleton. Normal quantities had no appreciable effect. Larger quantities produced a lot of gas (which would result in bloating and discomfort), but since the gas has... avenues of escape, no explosions. The only way to have this happen from Pop Rocks and Cola? If the stomach is clamped up at both the esophageal and duodenal end...which normally doesn't happen in RealLife. So, at least this variation is busted.

* This is inverted in Vitalic's "Stamina." Customers of a new weight loss drug are found dead while exercising; the lead detective of the case tries some himself, and soon finds himself hallucinating junk food: the same fate which killed the victims (One woman died reaching out for jelly beans while on a stationary bike; another man saw Twinkies and plunged to his death). The detective resists temptation, then gets into a fistfight with a malevolent burger man.

* In the novel ''TheNatural'', Roy has an insatiable appetite that finally comes back to bite him; after devouring 6 cheeseburgers for a midnight snack, his stomach finally gives out (it's unclear what exactly happened, but it doesn't seem like it actually ruptured). He was rushed to the hospital and ended up surviving, but it severely hurt the team's chances of winning the final game.

* Humorously attempted by Jon Arbuckle with his pet ComicStrip/{{Garfield}} when he gives him so much food to eat that he would burst. Of course, this being Garfield, the cat survives unaffected and he even asks Jon if he's going to eat whatever food he's eating at the moment.

* The ''[[Creator/ECComics Tales From the Crypt]]'' story "Telescope" has a starving man on a desert island who tries to eat a rat when it's busy eating a gull that swooped down for a fish. Shortly thereafter he's eaten by a shark. The final panel, when some fishermen catch the shark, explains the title as the head of each creature is hanging out of the mouth of the one that ate it!
