* In Myth/EgyptianMythology, the goddess Isis mixes her son Horus's semen into her hostile brother Set's food.

** From the same mythology, we have Procne and Philomela. They are sisters, but Procne's husband starts to lust after Philomela and rapes her then tears out her tongue so she wouldn't be able to tell the tale... so Philomela weaves it into a tapestry and shows it to Procne. Together, they kill Procne's son by her husband and serve the child for dinner to punish the husband. When the husband tries to kill them both, Zeus turns all three into birds (the guy was obviously nasty but killing and cooking a child was not something Zeus could forgive.)
** The versions of Lycaon's story where Lycaon had a daughter, Kallisto (who was once raped by Zeus then turned into a bear) as well as his sons say the boy Lycaon served for dinner to the visiting and disguised Zeus was Kallisto's son because Lycaon wanted to punish Zeus for what he did to Kallisto. Zeus was having none of it and this is why we call werewolves lycanthropes.


* In the Punisher Max, a mafia crime boss and his mooks are meeting with the boss of a rival Chinese gang in his restaurant. The Chinese boss is enjoying a meal and basically telling the mafia guy to go fuck himself. The Chinese boss says he has three strong sons who will carry on the family business and avenge him if he should have an accident. The mafia guy replies that he's a stupid fuck who was too dumb to check out his own place when he showed up for the meeting, that he actually has ''two'' strong sons, says that the youngest didn't come home from school, and the reason for that was because the youngest son has been ''bubbling in that pot on the stove in the back for the past hour.'' Cue the Chinese boss staring at the plate in front of him in horror.
