You've got someone on your tail. Could be a cop, [[TheBully the local bully]], or a ''[[ImplacableMan very]]'' [[ImplacableMan persistent]] {{loan shark}}. You could try to slow them down by shoving a banana (or potato, or similar sized object) in the tailpipe or muffler of their car. That way, you could give yourself time to escape and have a good laugh at the victim's expense as their car sputters and churns and fails to go anywhere. If the script calls for it, the car might even [[EveryCarIsAPinto explode]].

* In the ''{{Spider-Man}}'' game for Playstation, you have to close several smokestacks with covers, to cause an effect "like a banana in a tailpipe". In the sillier What If? mode, the tops of the covers actually have bananas on them.

* In the first episode of ''Series/DadsArmy'', while having a discussion of how to take on a tank with improvised weapons, Jones suggests plugging the exhaust with spuds (potatoes). Mainwarrign points out that it wouldn't work because tanks have long, thin exhaust pipes. [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Jones asks why they can't use long, thin spuds.]]
