"The Green Mile" did Ol' Sparky one better...when someone fried, the lights got brighter, and burst like balloons!

Then there is the Green Acres episode where they have the generator, Lisa burns it out, and Oliver tries to explain the "rule of seven", where the appliances have a number, and they cannot total more than 7.

Their chart is

Can Opener -- 1
Coffee Pot -- 2
Iron -------- 2
Toaster ----- 2
Mixer ------- 2
Frying Pan -- 2
Rotisserie -- 4
Dish Washer - 5
Washing Machine 6
Freezer ----- 6
Refrigerator 6

All horribly skewed (no way a household refrigerator, even back then, would use 3x the power of a coffee pot, which mine is 660W, or a can operner would draw 330 W)

Heck I'd urinate on a spark plug if I thought it would help. Just what we were saying the other day about a DC drive

One of my favorites is from the simpsons.

Homer is obsessed with safty and is babyproofing the house. He takes a magic marker and draws bunny faces on the receptacles. Marge comes in and says "Homer maggie is'nt afraid of bunnies." To which Homer replies "Oh she will be!!!"

The Big Lebowski

Maude Lebowski shows Jeffrey Lebowski an adult video that stars Bunny Lebowski, the missing girl that everyone is looking for. The video has a typical storyline where a cable guy comes to "fix the cable" at an apartment where there are two beautiful young women:

Maude Lebowski: "Good lord. You can imagine where it goes from here."
Jeffrey Lebowski: "He fixes the cable?"
