After spending significantly more time researching this than I did computing the average weight of lead lost on California's roads, I concur. I couldn't find a single reference to anything other than "subservient role" such as the straight man in a comedy routine.

Failing a reputable citation, my conclusion: Tim's pulling out leg.

"This
is the origin of the term 'second
banana.'"
Sounds more like some original
baloney to me. "Top banana," etc., are show-biz
terms dating to the old vaudeville days.
