    As of As of mid-2011, No New Stock Phrases may be created. I suggest you take this, put it here Other Stock Phrases and scrap this discussion.

    I'm not sure it counts as a stock phrase. To me, it's more a reference to And Show It To You, which is good because the tropes are quite related.

    ^It would count. Have you read the pothole?

    Characters hardly ever say "and feed it to you" when they actually perform the act.

    @Medinoc: No New Stock Phrases says:

    "A TV Tropes ruling established mid-2011 that no new articles in the YKTTW should be named after a Stock Phrase or line of personal (in-character) dialogue."

    (emphasis added)

    Therefore, it counts.

    Derek in American History X threatens to feed Cameron his heart if he comes near his family again.

    Besides, if they never say it when the trope happens, that makes the name less appropriate and more misleading.
  • August 29, 2012
    Another variation is "And Beat you with it!" (Separate trope?)

    Feed It To You Threat? (custom title would look like "Feed It To You" Threat)

    • In Alpha And Omega, Eve threatens the other pack: "If any of you wolves have hurt my daughter, I will personally RIP out your eyes, and SHOVE them down your throat so you can see my claws TEAR YOUR CARCASS OPEN!"

    Does it count if it's not feeding them but someone else?

    I like "Gory Feed Back" - that covers both the threat and the actual action.
