* A tragic example near the end of 2015 a mother forced her son to drink enough alcohol to induce alcohol poisoning resulting in his death, especially tragic given he was also on medication that reacted poorly to alcohol as well (although he'd have likely died even if he hadn't been on the medication). Her excuse? 'That's how my momma taught me not to want to drink.'

** Some hospitals used a special kind of ice cream flavor that wasn't publicly available, for this very purpose.

* In an old Sunday strip, Jon tries to cure ComicStrip/{{Garfield}} of his gluttony by offering him a huge pile of food, saying, "he's either going to get sick eating all that food, or he's going to burst trying". It doesn't work; after eating it all, Garfield is still hungry, asking Jon if he's going to finish his hamburger.

* Creator/ChuckBarris once gave an example about too many TV shows about the same thing (xrime dramas, westetns, game shows) can turn the audience off. In an interview in ''{{TV Guide}}'' magazine, he said, "One piece of pie is delicious. Fourteen pieces is obviously nauseating."

* ''BreadAndJamForFrances'' is right up there with ''Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle'' as ''the'' classic example of this trope.

* One of Jean de la Fontaine's ''TalesInVerse'' has a FamilyUnfriendlyAesop version. TheCasanova aristocrat sleeps with the wife of his servant and to prove to the servant that monogamy is impossible, serves him eel pie daily. This is at first a delicacy, but soon becomes unbearable. * Done in ''TheGreatBrain is Back'' when Tom, in experiment to find out why men smoke, gets caught smoking a cigarette in the barn. Papa tells him he may not smoke cigarettes outside, but he's free to have a pipe or cigar in the house anytime. Tom lasts about a few minutes before turning green, and when his girlfriend says she doesn't like the smell anyway, he concludes that men smoke in order to repel women.

* In ''OtisSpofford'' by BeverlyCleary, the title character's teacher has him make spitballs exclusively as punishment for shooting them. Cleary also includes a story in her autobiography of some boys who chewed garlic in class. The principal finally bought a dollar's worth of garlic--this was in the 1930s--and had them chew it all. * There's a children's book called ''TheChocolateTouch'' based on the legend of King Midas where a boy who eats too much candy unwittingly buys a magic chocolate from TheLittleShopThatWasntThereYesterday. After he eats it, everything he puts into his mouth turns to chocolate, making him thirsty and sick and ruining some possessions, like his trumpet. Finally he accidentally turns his mother into a chocolate statue by kissing her on the cheek, runs back to the shop's proprietor and tells him he's learned the error of his ways, and is allowed a ResetButton. * Another children's book, ''StregaNona'', is a SorcerersApprenticePlot starring the titular grandmotherly witch and her magic pot that produces pasta on command. The apprentice in question, Big Anthony, wanted some pasta, so while Strega Nona was out, he said the magic words to produce the pasta. However, he didn't know that you have to blow three kisses to make the pasta pot stop making pasta. The Radish Cure comes in at the end: Big Anthony's ''punishment'' for having flooded the entire village with pasta ... is having to eat all of it. * In Numbers 11:10 - 11:29 of the Bible, the Israelites have had nothing to eat but manna since they were liberated from Egypt. They complain about this to God and have the nerve to suggest ''they had better food to eat in Egypt''. God becomes so angry at them that he prescribes the following punishment: they shall indeed have meat. Lots of meat, and ''only'' meat, until it ''comes out of their nostrils'' and becomes ''loathsome'' to them. * In ''TheBabySittersClub'', Stacey uses this among other ReversePsychology techniques when she first sits for the [[SpoiledBrat Delaney siblings]]. The kids are supposed to clean up their playroom, but they try to get out of it by claiming that they ''like'' a messy playroom. Stacey agrees that messy playrooms are better and starts pulling everything off the shelves, scattering art supplies, and generally trying to make the playroom as much of a mess as possible, until the kids stop her by admitting they don't like the mess and agreeing to clean it up.

* Inverted in ''TheSarahSilvermanProgram'' - After being offered Tab by his boyfriend (who insists he at least try it once), Steve pretends to become obsessed with it. But, the boyfriend starts offering him more and more of it, turning it into an EscalatingWar. * Loren does this on an episode of ''DrQuinnMedicineWoman'' when a boy keeps stealing his cigars. He finally tells the boy he can have them- as long as he smokes them all in the store, in one sitting.

* In ''Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh'', [[{{Yandere}} Inanna/Ishtar]] asks [[TheHero Gilgamesh]] to be her consort, but he refuses, [[TheLongList citing what happened to pretty much all of her other boyfriends and husbands]]. Enraged, she [[DaddysGirl runs to her daddy, Nanna the moon god]], and asks for Gugalana, the Bull of Heaven. (Actually, the first husband of her older twin Ereshkigal. This becomes important [[InannasDescentToTheNetherworld later]].) Nanna warns her that giving her the Bull of Heaven will cause a drought and says no, but Inanna/Ishtar pitches a fit, threatening to cause a ZombieApocalypse if Gugalana is not given to her. Nanna gives in, and [[spoiler: Enkidu and Gilgamesh destroy Gugalana.]]

* Cliff and Claire do it on ''TheCosbyShow'' when Rudy complains about not being allowed to stay up late, choose her own clothes, etc. They agree to let her stay up as late as she likes. * In an early episode of ''MalcolmInTheMiddle'', Malcolm swears at his father, who is deeply hurt, and considers that it's hard to punish a child for swearing - 'if it was smoking I'd have him go through the whole pack until he was gasping for air'. This gives him an idea. Later, he hands Malcolm a long list of terms of abuse, and asks Malcolm to read everything on the list to 'the man who held you in his arms the moment you were born'. Malcolm gives up somewhere in the middle, but when Hal attempts to let him off, he quickly exclaims that he can finish the whole list. He does.
