* {{Bouncer}}: The "Meek Bouncer" sketch parodies this trope, as a thoroughly drunk bar patron (John Cleese) becomes unruly and is very politely asked to leave by the diminutive bouncer (Marty Feldman). The drunk physically throws the bouncer aside several times, and eventually starts emptying glasses over his head and [[PieInTheFace mashing desserts into his face and clothes]].
