* In one ''{{Blondie}}'' strip, the eponymous character asks whether a dress she is trying on makes her look fat. Dagwood responds by asking whether she means from the waist up or from the waist down, which he insists is a legitimate question. Blondie doesn’t get mad but agrees with the saleswoman that she shouldn’t have brought her husband along.
* A variation occurred in ''ForBetterOrForWorse'' shortly after Deanna became pregnant. One night after dinner she commented that she looked bloated and asked Michael if it was because of what they ate, or that she looked pregnant. Michael tried to tip-toe around it, saying it was too soon to tell. Finally, he caved and said it was because she looked pregnant. It turned out to be the right answer.

* In ''FullTilt'', Maggie's self-esteem issues are established early on when she asks this question after looking in a funhouse mirror (not joking in the slightest.) It gets a CallBack in the HallOfMirrors, [[spoiler:where the question reveals to Blake that she's the [[BodyHorror monster pursuing him]].]]

This is a trick question that brings terror to husbands in all {{Dom Com}}s (as she's not asking how the clothes make her look as much as how she looks), as he is ''[[MortonsFork never]]'' able to answer in a way that won't make his wife angry (saying "No" will convince her he's just saying what she wants to hear). Unless of course he just doesn't give a damn, in which case the answer is either "Yes" or "No, that doesn't make you look fat. [[BrutalHonesty The fact that you're fat makes you look fat]]."
