As I was halfway through mowing the front yard, it spits out a large chunk of black plastic that I vaguely remembered being attached to the backside of the mower. Oops:

I'm not exactly sure how this happened, but we came to the conclusion that it was an unnessary part of the mower. The rest of the plastic came off shortly thereafter:

The good news is that I finished mowing the lawn without further incident:
