I understand and support the exclusion of general examples since, with the exception of a few pieces that have obtained fame solely based upon their epic awfulness, most "examples" would probably wind up from haters trying to explain a show's popularity. However, could one not have "in-universe" examples? The concept is plenty well-known, and I'm sure there are plenty of examples of characters exhibiting this behavior.

If you can find sufficient In-Universe examples, you can request so in the Trope Repair Shop.

As a Marilyn Manson fan (obsessed and insane, to be exact), I'd say that "Lunchboxes and Choklit Cows" is by far one of the biggest Bile Fascination examples in history. There's four great things about it: it makes you realize that no matter how horrible you are at singing, there's hope for you yet, Chokilt Factory, Negative Three (oh, if only Manson did a new version of this now, it would be mindblowing) and Red (In My) Head , which isn't a good song, but it's a song about child molestation and uses Cat In The Hat quotes.

I'm getting close to buying Big Rigs:Over The Road Racing because the details on how bad it is is just so Hilarious! xD

Not sure how useful this is, but I'd like to mention that "rubbernecking" is the real-life form of this word for the sake of avoiding TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Vocabulary. Basically causing heads to turn far around while passing by, or snapping back like rubber when you try to look away. (The term's not just for scary things, though, but also for people in museums who are being railroaded through a tour and want to see more of something.)

Also questionably related is the Japanese expression "怖いもの見たさ" or "looking at scary things", with this trope as a connotation.

If everyone really misses the examples, some of the older snapshots on show them. It's mostly Natter and X Just X.

Wouldn't it make sense to include fictional examples of this trope rather than real ones?

Something seriously bad is going on. I need a new site to look at when I'm down.

Hey! I liked the page! The point of Bile Fascination is to list all the bad stuff that was interesting because of how bad it was. Just clean up the examples and delete the natter DON"T LOCK THE WHOLE PAGE!

Relatively new troper here. I came here because I wanted to fritter away time on the interwebs but now I have to go somewhere else. Disappointed to say the least.

Take It to the Forums, and see what happens.

There needs to be some YMMV subsection for this or something...

Thanks for castrating this site, Fast Eddie. It's people like you that got the MPAA passed, people like you why we can't have consensual sex between two consenting adults in the missionary position in video games, and people like you who give everyone a trophy. You're the scum of the earth, and have ruined an excellent site.

Go to hell.

Person, he locked a few pages, that's all. Don't overreact.

Locking over 80 pages and banning people he doesn't like gives me every god damn reason to complain, fuck him.

There is a typo in the article :

"because they they actually do like it"

The word "they" is written twice. Since the page is locked, this grammar nazi can't correct it.

I have mixed feelings about Dragon Ball GT's inclusion on this page, especially when compared to all the other entries. Isn't it more like watching a disappointing instalment that's part of the same box set, a kind of Seasonal Rot if you will? (It's neither here nor there, but I actually liked parts of it, but it was still far worse than the series adapted from the Dragon Ball manga, so yeah)
