Not as bad a piddling on an electric fence. Never done that myself, but I remember someone who did.
It was featured on Punt & Dennis' "It's Been a Bad Week" on BBC Radio 2 ("The worst week of the week award awarded weekly on a week by week basis"). Can't remember if it won.

Just shows the importance of learning a bit of the local language when travelling abroad.:bigsmile:
