BB, tree-climbing expert

"You know, I've been climbing trees all my life, but not trees near overhead lines. 'Cause if you touch one of those lines, or your weight makes a branch touch one of those lines, that electricity will come straight to you. And that can hurt. It may even kill you. And climbing utility poles is really dumb. So, remember, always look up before climbing, and stay out of trees near overhead lines."

That PSA used to run on Saturday mornings on one of the Topeka TV stations. It was obviously quite effective, since I can still quote it, verbatim, thirty years later.
