* In one episode of Gordon Ramsay, though it's meant to be serious as Ramsay cannot stand bad food, the way he said that even if the food is given to a mannequin for free but refuses makes it funny.

* ''Film/{{Riddick}}'' opened up an MRE, tasted it, then threw it to his tamed hyena/jackal thing, the "dog" sniffed it once, then turned around and [[ExcrementStatement peed]] on it.

* While at Momma Lucy’s, David, from ''Film/{{Mr and Mrs Smith|1941}}'', is concerned [[MakesSenseInContext that the cat won’t eat the soup they’re eating]].
-->'''David Smith''': I'd give five bucks to see that cat take a sip of that soup.
* In ''{{Film/Toys}}'', Robin Williams' character jokes that he once experimented by putting a pile of sugar and a pile of artificial sweetener on the sidewalk. In short order, ants had formed a line to collect the sugar, while the other pile had barricades and a traffic-control crew.

** In ''Discworld/TheAmazingMauriceAndHisEducatedRodents'', rats often remind one another that the 'green wobbly bit' is something to be avoided when eating one another.
** In ''Discworld/TheTruth'', the same Dibbler encounters two customers who ''want'' a truly awful sausage inna bun, and he shifts an internal gear into reverse as he describes their contents, including the tidbit that you won't find any rat in them, because rats won't go near the place they are made (with the tasteful detail that when a man's thumb got cut off they didn't even stop the grinder - one hopes he was exaggerating).

** In several episodes, people who have HORRIBLE cooking are demonstrated how horrible their cooking is by having even [[BigEater Garfield]] refuse to eat them. An example being Papa Plastique's pizza, which was so inedible as to seem to be made of plastic.

* In one cartoon, WesternAnimation/PepeLePew finally realized he smells bad when a sewer rat climbs out of a manhole, takes a sniff, and keels over in his wake.

* MRE (Meal, Ready-to-Eat) is the [[UsefulNotes/YanksWithTanks US Armed Forces]]' combat ration, but we know them as as Meals Refused by the Enemy/Ethiopians/Everyone. Also joked as "three lies for the price of one" (it's not a meal, it's not ready, and you wish you didn't have to eat it). They're also notorious for their lack of fiber, resulting in them also being referred to as Meals Reluctant to Excrete.
** Well, that was mainly in the 80s, when they were first introduced. Since then, they've become better and more edible.
*** Still just as constipation-inducing though, which can be a good or bad thing depending on how comfortable you are with doing your business in the field.

* As the story goes, ''natto'' was discovered when horse feed had gone so bad the horses wouldn't eat it anymore.
** For those who don't know what natto is, imagine if you left a bowl of beans to rot, I mean, ''ferment'' until you have something that is half-bean, half-foul-smelling-paste.

* An old urban legend had it that a starving coyote wouldn't eat a dead Mexican, because the residue of a lifetime of chili peppers would burn the creature's mouth. This is utter biological nonsense, but gullible gringo tourists were regularly fooled by this equivalent of "free-range haggis" or "{{drop bear}}s." A variation that says that vultures won't touch a dead Mexican makes even less sense: peppers don't burn birds in the first place.[[labelnote:Scientific aside]]Capsaicin, the active ingredient in hot peppers, does not affect birds. Peppers probably evolved from a plant that contained low levels of capsaicin as an antifungal agent, but plants with ever-higher quantities of capsaicin also survived being eaten by mammals, which (unlike birds) have molars that destroy the fragile pepper seeds, and (again unlike birds) can taste the capsaicin and be disgusted by it.[[/labelnote]]

* In ''Literature/{{Bravelands}}'', this is a more spiritual example. The vultures in the Bravelands usually observe the carcass of a killed animal before eating it, to see if the animal was killed according to the Code or not. If not, the vultures won't eat it, instead taking its bones to the Great Mother to read.

* At one point shortly after Koromaru (the dog) joins in ''{{Persona 3}}'', there's a small moment in the dorm lounge (it can be seen around 8/15 to 8/24) where Yukari, having screwed up making her dinner, tries to feed the leftovers to him. Koromaru wants nothing to do with them. Junpei, of course, thinks it's hilarious.
