How might one trip a breaker from a GFCI outlet?

Somewhat derivative of How can I trip a breaker from the outlet, how could someone relatively safely and quickly, with basic tools, trip a breaker at a GFCI outlet (relatively safely meaning not getting electrocuted or starting a fire)?

If something conductive and grounded is touched to the line or a drop of water falls on it, it's just going to trip the outlet, but there will still be power to it, right? That's the point of the GFCI.

Thanks for answering the question, as well as all advice to not and never do such a thing.
