Incentives in "New Kid on the Block" - the Simpsons
by Dirk Mateer `

Homer and Marge go to an all-you-can-eat seafood buffet. Marge doesn't like seafood so she decides to not order anything and just have tic tacs. Homer orders the buffet and gorges himself. Marge makes the correct decision since her marginal benefit is less than the buffet price. Homer also makes the correct decision since he is able to eat way more food than average. Homer eats so much food that the restaurant eventually kicks him out.
