Go To
Naveen has seen things he wishes he couldn't have.

A cartoon trope in which a huge or fat character — either accidentally or intentionally — sits on a smaller character. The bigger character then stands up, revealing the smaller character being Squashed Flat and stuck to the bigger character's backside. The bigger character may or may not be aware of what just happened. This is particularly common with animal characters who are elephants, hippos, and rhinoceroses.

Subtrope of Joke of the Butt. Compare Ass Kicks You, Belly Flop Crushing, Sleep Squashing. Not to be confused with Blush Sticker.
