* Two rather humorously dark examples in ''Film/NationalLampoonsVacation''.
** When Clark is pulled over by a highwayman. Clark at first has no clue why the officer is being hostile until he's shown the empty dog lesh on the bumper of the car. Realizing he had forgotten he tied up Aunt Edna's dog to it when they had stopped at a park, got distracted as they were leaving and well--you get the idea. Clark tries to downplay it to his family until the officer hands him the dog leash and comments that he'll pick up the carcass down the road.
** Later as the family are set for a lunch break, Ellen tries to get the kids to wake up Edna. When they can't seem to rouse her, Clark just passes it off as her being old and letting her rest. Least till Ellen realizes that she's dead.
