Back in the 70s I worked at a TV station with a 1000 tower and the tower crew was changing out the lights. From on top of the tower they threw a set of coveralls stuffed with straw over and one started yelling as it came down. I wasn't there but one of the engineers who was said he thought the the chief engineer was going to have a heart attack until he saw what it was and then he got really mad.
That would be one of those times where first you get pissed, then you laugh about it later.
