When I was about 7 or so, i saw this movie called The Burbs. It stars Tom Hanks before he went Bono on us.
The movie is about this family that moves in next door to Tom Hank's character, and how he thinks that their some kind of weird cannibal cult.
Well...there's this one scene where, for some reason or other, Tom Hanks goes over to visit them. And the 'cannibal' couple offer Tom some sardines and pretzels, who then reacts to this as though he is disgusted and horrified at having to eat it.
As a kid I loved Sardines and pretzels :(
