Many works depict various types of people - as well as what those people eat. Now, normally, this is all well and good. Sometimes, though, it gets a little out of hand; all "serious" gamers, for example, might be found stuffing their face with soda (Mountain Dew, if they're using brands) and chips, for example.

Do we have this one already?

Examples

Film

  • In Toy Story 2, Al (of Al's toy barn) can be seen eating some sort of cheese puff snack while watching television, complete with orange fingers. [[hottip:Note:Okay, I didn't check the movie. I'm combining a weak memory with the first comment on this YKTTW.]]
  • In Zombieland, Columbus can be seen surrounded by pizza boxes and bottles of Mountain Dew, all while playing World of Warcraft.

Western Animation

  • A South Park episode features the boys playing World of Warcraft for hours on end, eating assorted junk foods and gaining noticeable poundage. [[hottip:Note:Again, I'm only going by the comment.]]
