* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' has the classic episode "Joker's Favor" where the worlds Buttmonkey, Charlie Collins, has had the worst day of his life, which is topped off by his wife making meatloaf that night. Of course, after a run-in with the Joker that ends up haunting him for two years before the matter is finally resolved, his wife's meatloaf is looking pretty good.

--> '''Charlie''': ''Home''. Never thought that could sound so good. Wonder what Bonny is making for dinner. Right now ANYTHING would be good, even meatloaf.
* The unfinished ''MissionHill'' episode "Supertool" had its b-plot start out with Kevin trying to use the bathroom at school to brush his teeth to get rid of the aftertaste of the schools "Nutrition Loaf". Toby remarks that atleast its better than the even lower quality "Behavior Loaf".

* ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8240089/17/Mortem-Cantor Mortem Cantor]]'':
-->Harry glanced over the different choices, trying to decide which would be the least likely to taste like shit. He decided upon a salad, because it was the only thing he could recognise at a first glance. And at least it looked fresh (probably because it was completely untouched by everybody else; ''heaven forbid eating anything green'') unlike the different selections of meat, none of which Harry could identify. He refused to touch any of ''that''; it could be something gross, like road kill, and nobody would ever notice.

* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' had an episode where the cafeteria lady was dumping rat poison into the dessert. In another episode (Season 6), Buffy starts working at the "[[BurgerFool Doublemeat Palace]]" and finds [[SoylentGreen a human finger in the meat grinder]]. This ends up being a bait-and-switch: the finger was there because a demon killed someone, but the meat was more mundane. [[spoiler:Except that it wasn't meat at all - it was veggieburger ''flavored'' with beef and chicken fat. Fattening cardboard. Charming.]]

Maybe even actually human, rather than the vervet monkey or bat you were reassured it was. And, it may also give you the latest version of AIDS or Ebola.Ebola or whatever as a bonus freebie.

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', the standard meal in low-end taverns is "brown", a stew made by boiling whatever the cook could find that day into unidentifiable goop. People reduced to actually eating brown know better than to ask what went into it. Over the course of the series, cats, dogs, gulls, dead horses and quite a few inconvenient individuals end up in the stewpots of King's Landing's poor quarter. Meeting a sellsword who admits to ''liking'' brown is enough to make Tyrion lose his appetite.

Worse, it's clear that this... delicacy-and-disposal-method... has been around for ''at least'' a century. Meeting a sellsword who admits to ''liking'' (and really missing) authentic King's Landing brown is enough to make Tyrion lose his appetite.

--> '''Earl''': ''looking concerned at a piece of meat'' What part of the animal is this?
--> '''Neighbor''': I don't even know what kind of animal it's from!

* {{Nickelodeon}} sketch show ''WelcomeFreshmen'', being about high school life, naturally covered this one, which included a glam rock song called, you guessed it, "Mystery Meat".

* On an installment of ''NoReservations'' set in a backwoods joint somewhere in southeast Asia, the usually up for anything Anthony Bourdain was visibly nervous about meat from small animal. Tony's companion spoke very poor English and referred to it as "squeezil", causing Tony to have horrifying images of what it might be. [[spoiler:Apparently, it's porcupine - after figuring it out, Tony was visibly relieved]].

* One issue of MarvelComics ''[[ComicBook/GIJoeARealAmericanHeroMarvel G.I. Joe]]'' series had a group of Joe recruits being put through deliberately harsh training to see who cracked. Lunch was "mystery meat on a shingle". One disgusted recruit asks "How do they get it so grey?".
