Sorry to respond to myself, but I've decided the mother thing is  
legit. She's referred to as "an eater", and it is suggested she'd be  
delicious with a few French fries, a little broccoli, and stuffing.  
Also rat tart, albatrosses and other cinema concession treats, a  
plethora of baked bean references, and the cheese the mice men are  
'handin' 'round.

Non-Python Honorable mentions go to Peter Cook's (hey, nice name!)  
and Dudley Moore's Frog and Peach Restaurant Sketch, and Alexei  
Sayle's "The Giant Tin Of Crab Paté That Time Forgot", a.k.a. The  
Invasion of the Bendy Toys.
