* Norm MacDonald's take on it:
-->'''Norm:''' My dad caught me smoking a cigarette behind the house, so he pulled me into the house by my arm, stuck a gigantic cigar in my mouth and forced me to smoke that entire cigar! ({{Beat}}) So that's how I got started on cigars...

%%* * ''Bread and Jam for Frances'' is right up there with ''Literature/MrsPiggleWiggle'' as ''the'' classic example of this trope.trope. In this story, Frances the badger only wants to eat bread and jam, and is unwilling to try any other foods. Her parents decide to give her bread and jam for every meal, and while she's happy about it at first, she eventually gets tired of it and asks to try some spaghetti at one meal. The story ends with her bringing a lunch to school that consists of a wide variety of foods, with no jam to speak of.

* A non-food example occurred in ''WesternAnimatiomn/SpongebobSquarepants.'' In the episode "Squidsville," after his house is destroyed by another of Spongebob and Patrick's shenanigans, Squidward moves to Tentacle Acres, a cephalopod only gated community, and declares it his version of heaven since everyone thinks like him, and shares his passions. After living there for sometime, he gets bored and starts engaging similar shenanigans as Spongebob.

* In Numbers 11:1-29 of Literature/TheBible, 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'' (as in, when they were slaves crying out to God to rescue them). 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.

Compare BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor, ExactWords, LiteralGenie, and ReversePsychology. Can overlap with JerkassGenie on the parents' part if they fulfill the child's wish by giving them only the negative aspects of what they want, without any of the good. If the child's punishment is essentially self-inflicted (i.e. s/he ''steals'' the forbidden fruit and experiences its unpleasant consequences), it becomes a case of ThePunishmentIsTheCrime.

* In the ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' fic [[FanFic/BetterLeftUnsaid Better Left Unsaid]], Kurenai catches Naruto with a cigarette he stole from Asuma. She forces Naruto to smoke an entire carton to make him sick and prevent him from ever smoking again. Unfortunately, Kurenai forgot to factor in Naruto's HealingFactor, resulting in him simply becoming addicted to cigarettes.

** ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory''. Arguably, this [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation could be Wonka's]] real thoughts behind the children meeting their various fates. They all were taken out of running when they went to steal or use something that clearly wasn't safe but they still wanted. In adaptations, Wonka seems decidedly unconcerned with rescuing or stopping the kids, so...

* In one episode of ''Series/{{Mash}}'', Father Mulcahy cures a dog of its liquor stealing habits by giving the dog all the whiskey it can drink. One massive hangover later, and the dog refused to touch alcohol ever again.

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

* [[FanFic/RaisedByJagers Raised By Jagers]] has a young Agatha Heterodyne refuse to go to bed one night while in the care of Mamma Gkika. So Mamma Gkika, ever wise, decides to let Agatha stay up as long as she wants.
--->“Und vot did hyu learn, sveethot?” Gkika asked.
--->“That little girls need their sleep even if they don't think they do,” Agatha recited dutifully. “Can I take a nap?”

* Named for the classic ''Literature/MrsPiggleWiggle'' example. In fact, ''all'' of the early ''Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle'' stories had this basic form, not just the Radish Cure one. The plot outline changed a little after the author added magic powers to Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's repertoire.
** For example, the Whisper Sticks - sweet candy canes given to two little girls who whisper incessantly, so that they can't do anything ''but'' [[AndIMustScream whisper]] and end up in a huge fight.
* ''Bread and Jam for Frances'' is right up there with ''Literature/MrsPiggleWiggle'' as ''the'' classic example of this trope.

* A few years ago, a necklace was invented with food scents, such as chocolate or pizza, with the premise that if you smelled it all the time, you would stop wanting the food.
