When a Big Eater is Too Dumb to Live.

It could be something they've been told not to eat for medical reasons or something that would be harmful to anyone.


Examples:

Live-Action TV
  • In the The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air episode "Home is Where the Heart Attack Is" Phil has a heart attack and his doctor orders him to stop eating greasy food. He gets Will to sneak him unhealthy food behind everyone's backs. Played for Laughs at first, until he has another heart attack.

Western Animation
  • In the Codename: Kids Next Door episode "Operation: OUTBREAK" Numbuh 4 buys a Coco Nut Log from a vending machine and eats it despite being allergic to coconut. According to Numbuh 5, this is a common occurrence.
  • In the Archer episode "Sea Tunt: Part I" Pam eats a ton of vegan imitation jumbo shrimp even though she's allergic to soy.
