* In an example of an animal eating its own kind, ''Series/MythBusters'' tested the tale that a cereal box was more nutricious than its contents. In the cage where mice were fed cardboard, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziQWDnFSPt8 one mouse decided that its fellow rodents were more nutricious than the cardboard.]] Even before then, there were signs that aught was amiss with the mice. [[ExecutiveMeddling Discovery Channel will not let the footage see the light of day.]]

** ''{{Hoodwinked}}'', the 2006 animated adaptation of this story, features a FridgeLogic example: a few police officers seen at Granny's house are pigs. But at the same time, we learn that Kirk sells schnitzel on a stick out of a truck. Schnitzel, for the record, is created from pork, which comes from pigs. Unless we to assume there are two different kinds of pigs - sentient and non-sentient types - existing in this part of the forest, you wonder what would happen if a pig ate something from Kirk's truck.

Note that this trope does apply to non-humans who are sentient or otherwise capable of independent thought or communication. Even if they only eat their own kind.

* In ''Podcast/TheOrbitingHumanCircusOfTheAir'' the eponymous fictional radio variety show airs a story segment, "Goolsby and Rue" where an Englishwoman recounts discovering as a girl that her mother's employers, prominent barristers, indulged in secret cannibalism during celebratory dinners held after they exonerate truly vile, wealthy, guilty clients. They have their clients for dinner.

* PlayedForLaughs in a few Music/TomLehrer songs:
** In "The Irish Ballad," the protagonist "cut her baby brother in two / And served him up as an Irish stew / And invited the neighbors in."
** In "My Home Town," the local druggist "killed his mother-in-law and ground her up real well, / And sprinkled just a bit / Over each banana split."

** When DaveBarry held a survey for what his readers considered the worst songs ever made, this was one of the top finishers, despite being nowhere near as big a hit as the others. Barry noted that it made up for a lack of success with its extremely memorable subject matter.

In SpeculativeFiction, cannibalism is generally extended to include all sapient or humanoid creatures, even if they aren't technically human. Any species that includes humans (or other humanoids) [[ToServeMan in its diet]] is usually portrayed as [[AlwaysChaoticEvil villainous]], as is any species that routinely [[MonstrousCannibalism eats members of its own social group]]. Likewise, humans treating other sapient species as food are rarely treated sympathetically (unless WhatMeasureIsANonHuman is in effect).
