* [[WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill Hank Hill]] once tried this with a wrapper from a slice of cheese; he missed, and when he went to retrieve it, his kitchen floor collapsed (thanks to [[ConspiracyTheorist Dale]] deciding to [[ItMakesSenseInContext dig a "secret tunnel" between their houses]]).

* In ''Literature/{{Orca}}'', Kiera breaks into a defunct bank to collect clues its corrupt owner might have left behind. Most of what she salvages consists of crumpled-up balls of paper, which had slipped behind the furniture in the owner's office, presumably over the course of several days' WastebasketBall.

* Prodigy dial-up internet had a series of "before they were famous" ads, one of which featured NBA star Larry Bird working the paint counter at a hardware store. He wipes his hands on a cloth, tosses it at a trash can, makes the shot perfectly, and smirks as if to say "Hey, wait a minute..."

He later realized that he had nothing to worry about when she came home safe one day when he forgot to do it.
