* In the Creator/MarxBrothers' classic ''HorseFeathers'', Harpo pulls a banana out of his pocket which has a zipper built into the peel. He eats a couple of bites; when called away, he re-zips the peel to save the rest of the fruit for later.

* A game presentation/conference after E3 2012 included a clip of Creator/{{Nintendo}} president Satoru Iwata holding a bunch of bananas, staring at it for a few seconds before putting it down. This was given no explanation.

This was given no explanation. It was later parodied in later Nintendo Directs, once with Bill Trinen staring at a tangerine the same way, and later with [[ArtShift Lego version of Iwata]] staring at a carrot.

[[folder:Webcomics]] * In Creator/{{A-gnosis}} webcomics, Dionysos almost always has some grapes with him, as decoration in his hair, or elsewhere. As he's both the god of wine, and a bit eccentric, that's to be expected.

* In Creator/RaymondEFeist's ''[[TheRiftwarCycle Riftwar]]'' sagas, the magician Nakor often pulls out an orange from his pack and offers it to people. Searches always find his bag empty, but he can pull out an orange anytime he wishes. This is later explained, but when you meet him, he appears to be a strange crazy man who offers you an orange, or if he doesn't like you, sits there eating one while ignoring or mocking you.

** In "The Doctor Dances", where the above quote originates, the Doctor gives Jack a banana. There's no reason for him to have a banana, but since his pockets are bigger on the inside, he could conceivably have carried one around just waiting for a chance to use it.

** The Fifth Doctor consistently wore a piece of celery as a corsage. In this case, though, it had practical reasons, as explained in "The Caves of Androzani": -->'''Peri:''' Why do you wear a stick of celery in your lapel?\\ '''Doctor:''' Why? Does it offend you? \\ '''Peri:''' No, just curious.\\ '''Doctor:''' I'm allergic to certain gases in the Praxsis range of the spectrum.\\ '''Peri:''' How does the celery help?\\ '''Doctor:''' If the gas is present, the celery turns purple.\\ '''Peri:''' Then what do you do?\\ '''Doctor:''' I eat the celery. If nothing else, I'm sure it's good for my teeth. ** The Doctor had a banana in his pocket in "The Two Doctors". It was never commented on by any of the characters, it was just there. Then again, the story was very much about vegetarianism... ** In "The Doctor Dances", where the above page quote originates, the Doctor gives Jack a banana.

This works extremely well with bananas (because FreudWasRight, anyone can slip on a BananaPeel, and ''banana'' is an [[InherentlyFunnyWords Inherently Funny Word]]), but it also works with apples, oranges, kumquats, lemons, tangelos, pineapples and, in one case, a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satsuma_(fruit) satsuma]]. Often makes use of a FundamentallyFunnyFruit.

* Alcatraz Smedry's [[Literature/AlcatrazSeries autobiography]] features a variant of this. Alcatraz inserts the word "rutabaga" into random places in the narration as part of his general campaign to persuade us that he's an evil person.

* In [[DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney's]] ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'', the good guys' plan to sneak into the palace and save the emperor involves the comic relief trio [[DisguisedInDrag dressing up as women]]. If them pulling fruit out of the front of their robes as a [[TheReveal reveal]] wasn't amusing enough, one of them pulls out a ''banana'' (and not TWO, for that matter).
