This subtrope of ImAHumanitarian and HumanResources seems to get off on that same impulse as the reveals of PoweredByAForsakenChild machinery or the connotations of EvilTastesGood: deep down we suspect that all the wrong and taboo things are actually the tastiest -- and perhaps They have banned the peons from indulging in them to keep them for Themselves.

* Run into a restaurant in the middle of nowhere in ''Literature/WaterMargin'', odds are it serves the guests by, well, serving the guests. This is not actually depicted as a particularly big deal, and the heroic bandits of Liangshan Marsh run several inns that operate on this principle - [[MightMakesRight if you're a mighty warrior, they recruit you, and if you're not, the mighty warriors have something special for their larders]].

* This is the second guaranteed fixture of ''Theatre/SweeneyTodd'' tellings after "throat slashing barber" - the bodies are then used to make Mrs. Lovett's meat pies, initially just for body disposal but often it then turns out that this just increases the flavor.

* Rumoured Rumored to have occurred in Chicago meat packing industry in Creator/UptonSinclair's ''Literature/TheJungle''.''Literature/TheJungle'', which currently provides the page quote. While conditions in the factories were horrid enough to cause the Pure Food and Drug Act, this specific allegation was never substantiated by Federal investigations, which is why it is not listed under the Real Life section.

-->'''Professor''': My dear Mr. Mandus, I admire your vision, I truly do--but there are surely not enough pigs in the whole of London to feed the appetite of such a machine.\\
'''Mandus''': That all rather depends, Professor, ''on

** New Vegas also features the White Glove Society, formerly a tribe of savage cannibals. Now they have reinvented themselves as the ultra-genteel operators of the most exclusive casino, hotel, and restaurant on the Strip, and the consumption of human flesh is strictly banned. The quest "Beyond the Beef" centers on one member who wants to return the Society to their roots, and he plans to do it by tricking the entire group into eating long pork, with the subsequent [[IAteWhat reveal]] putting them all in the same boat. Ironically, his "sacrificial lamb" happens to be the son of the beef baron who supplies meat to the whole Strip. As with most major quests in New Vegas, the player can influence the outcome in wildly different ways, from re-swapping the meal so there is only one cannibal, to serving bloody justice to the entire Society, to freeing the son while offering ''[[WhatTheHellPlayer one of your own companions]]'' as a replacement.
