* ''WebVideo/DragonBallAbridged'' features this exchange:
-->'''Piccolo:''' [[SarcasmBlind It's called sarcasm!]]\\
'''Goku:''' What's that taste like?\\
'''Piccolo:''' DAMN IT, Goku!


Added DiffLines:

** An earlier episode had Goku asking the same thing about [[DoesNotUnderstandSarcasm sarcasm]], to Piccolo's frustration.
** Another episode has Bulma describing soap as a "bar of animal fat", which prompts Vegeta to try eating it. After a {{Beat}} he spits it back out and complains that it didn't taste nearly as good as she made it sound.

* In [[Fanfic/Gensokyo20XX Gensokyo 20XXV]], due to being near blind from the rat poison incident, Reimu has a habit of putting things in her mouth to see if they are edible or not. Ironically, this is what caused her to eat the rat poison that left her near blind in the first place, along with CuriosityKilledTheCast and CuriosityIsACrapshoot, along with being an ExtremeOmnivore.
-->'''Amoridere''': Well, yeah, as that is what had prompted her to eat the rat poison in the first place because she wanted to see if it was food and, since it tasted sweet (it does last I checked), she thought it was something to eat and continued to eat it until the jar was empty.
** This also occurs with Ryuuko in ''Cellar Secret'', however, unlike Reimu, she gets a more of a pass on it, as, due to having been locked away in a cellar since she was in her formative years and being a currently rehabilitated FeralChild, she hadn't had much a chance to learn how not to identify objects this way.


Added DiffLines:

*In chapter thirteen of ''Cellar Secrets'', when Nui brings home a kitten and tells her what cats are, she gives the response of, "Eat?" to which Nui gently explains some things they eat, cats ''not'' being one of those things.

* In ''Anime/CorrectorYui'', the impossibly computer-illiterate title character initially mistakes "delete" for "dessert" and wonders where the food is. (Asamiya Kia's rewrite of the manga has her think it's "Doritos," but it leads to the same thing.) This kicks off a RunningGag of her mistaking "delete" for any similar-sounding words.
