* Although this is usually played with high school age characters, (are) adult examples have popped up, usually among characters who doubt their abilities as parents (sometimes with good reason): ''{{Frasier}}'' used the trope in one episode, when Niles adopts a sack of flour to see if he is ready to become a dad. The humor comes in that the sack is singed, taped, glued, and otherwise maimed from a series of events that take place offscreen and are highly unlikely for babies to encounter (as Niles put it, "A real baby would have cried before bursting into flames."). Ultimately, the sack was chewed up by the dog and Niles treats the situation as if he had actually lost the child. He also had a dream where somebody kidnapped it and started sending him [[FingerInTheMail muffins in the mail.]]

* PlayedWith on ''GirlMeetsWorld.'' Before Cory and Topanga leave Riley to babysit Auggie, they give her an egg. Riley assumes it's going to play out the typical way with her having to take care of it to prove she's responsible. Instead, Cory has Riley give the egg a name, face, and personality so Riley will become emotionally attached to it. Once she does, Cory smashes the egg, to her horror. Cory then tells her that if she's that upset over the egg, she should have an idea of how upset Cory and Topanga will be if something happens to Auggie on her watch.

She leaves to go shopping and Harold, [[Myth/GreekMythology who is apparently channeling Cronos at the time]], gets very hungry and eats it. They ultimately turn in the egg shell, taped together.
