* ''Literature/TheHobbit'' features the trolls debating what a hobbit is and if you can eat one. Them being trolls, the answer is ''yes''. Although, they ultimately decide that he's so small and miserable that it would be too much trouble to skin and bone him for the little meat that he has, and throw him away, almost forgetting about him. Now, thirteen drwarves with him, there's an idea for a good meal.

* ''Film/AnchormanTheLegendOfRonBurgundy'' does this in one unused take, in the scene where Ed Harken introduces Veronica Corningstone as the station's newest reporter. When Harken mentions that the sponsors have complained about a lack of diversity in the newsroom, Champ asks "What in the hell's 'diversity'?", and Ron responds "I may be wrong, but I believe 'diversity' is a type of mustard." [[note]] In the final version of the film, the line is: "I may be wrong, but I believe 'diversity' is an old, old wooden ship used in the Civil War era.[[/note]]

** It's actually a well-established fact that most sharks think humans taste disgusting, so [[WildMassGuessing presumably]], a shark that has "attacked" a human once won't do it again because it's already "identified" human-shaped things as "not for eating".

* In {{Mark Twain}}'s "The Death Disk" the main character was telling his young daughter a "true story" and when he stated that the three colonels in the story "committed a breach of discipline" she asked "Is it something good to eat, papa?" When he tried rephrasing it and said that they'd exceeded their orders she started to ask if ''that'' was something to eat and he replied "No, it's as inedible as the other."

* Dogs: the old joke being a [[DogsAreDumb dog's thought process]] on finding something goes, "If it's moving, chase it. If it's not moving, eat it. If you can't eat it, have sex with it."
** Similar to babies above; since dogs don't have hands, the best way for a dog to get a feel for something is to put its mouth on it.

* ''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.
