* Inverted in ''Film/{{Highlander}}.'' Connor describes haggis to Ramirez, who asks what you do with it. When Connor says that you eat it, Ramirez finds the idea repulsive. What makes it even funnier is that Creator/SeanConnery, the actor playing Ramirez, is Scottish, and Christopher Lambert, the actor playing Connor, isn't.

** In another strip, Lucy notices Frieda reclining on Schroeder's piano. Lucy joins her but then warns her that if she's gonna hang around, she has to like Beethoven. Frieda replies, "All right, but I'll just have a small glass." Schroeder angrily yanks his piano from underneath the both of them.

* Babies, in what [[AllPsychologyIsFreudian Sigmund Freud called the "oral phase"]], seem to use "stick it in your mouth" as their default object identification protocol. Especially when teething. This is because babies' eyesight is not all that good, and most of their working touch receptors are on their lips, so "stick it in your mouth" is just a method to feel it better, if not taste it, rather than a legitimate attempt to eat it. This behavior is called "mouthing".

In other words, when babies put dirty anythings in their mouth, they're vaccinating themselves. [[/note]].

* A RunningGag in ''DigimonAdventureTri'' involves Agumon asking if anything he's unfamiliar with is tasty, often prompting Gatomon to tell him to shut up if she's present. He even keeps doing it as Koromon [[spoiler:after the reboot which erased all the digimon's memories]].

* ''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.
