A sketch seen in episode 316 of The Muppet Show chronicles the normally mundane lunch hour of a construction worker. On this day, however, the Whatnot begins light with a banana, tossing the peel aside. He's about to take a bite when a certain rhythm catches the peel and it begins to dance. Other items soon follow, jumping out of his lunch box to join the contagious jaunt. A celery stalk, two carrots and a sandwich are dancing gaily when the worker decides to fish in the lunch box to see what other treasures there are to behold. Realizing too late his mistake, his hand has become stuck, and he's is sucked into the box and eaten, finished with a satisfying burp.
