  • Played for Laughs at the end of The Strangerhood, with Tovar. With his place back home filled by his Evil Twin, that makes "quantum crap", so it's said that they'll liquefy his DNA and drink it. It's okay because "genetic cannibalism is totally in, in the future."
  • Comes up a couple of times in Survival of the Fittest. Warning, not only spoilers here but excessively horrible.

Making matters worse is the Narrator's realization that there's no element of biological necessity in this. The Thistle Man is simply showing off.

They have their clients for dinner.

Later, he's confirmed to have eaten the fetal clones of Mrs. Briefs.

  • This happens in Dr. Crafty in episode 24 "Hocus Mansion". In that episode, Dr. Crafty and Nurse Worse resurrect the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus. About a minute after resurrection, Mary and Sarah flock to Nurse claiming she'll keep them fed for centuries and call her
