Okay, how about this one:

While standing waist deep in an Amazon tributary in Peru, unknowingly
pinning an electric eel between your dipnet and the substrate, a surge of
electricity running up the handle of the net, up your arms and into your
shoulders, screaming "_at_#%&! electric eel!", moving a few feet to the right,
and dipnetting some more.
