-Thumping Paul Newman's bloated belly full of eggs in Cool Hand Luke.
-El Topo smells, cringes, then eats a drug beetle
-Something about the way Gary -Oldman as Sid Vicious eats a slice of pizza in the end of Sid and Nancy
-Viggo spitting peas in The Indian Runner
-Seth Brundle giving his video tutorial on how he dissolves his food by regurgitating on it and sucking it back up, Or, Vincent Price with fly head on under cloth with his bowl of milk. Sound effects of grotesque slurping.
-Liver in Leolo
-Turkey in the bathtub in Leolo
