** Parodied with a SpoofAesop when Bill goes off to demonstrate how much empty space is in an atom (the nucleus is at the lab, the first electron shell is on a beach several miles away). Bill goes racing off in a car with the camera running on fast-forward and the announcer remarks, "Don't drive like this at home, kids! You could leave tire marks on the living room carpet!"

* Done in-universe in a post-Cell Game episode of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': before trying to break 19 large tiles on live television, Mr. Satan takes the time to give the warning, with a twist: he doesn't warn the children at home to not imitate him but ''the parents'' to make sure the children don't try it. Considering he's a parent himself and his only daughter ''does'' try and imitate him, [[GenreSavvy it's a very sensible warning]].
