I kind of wish lightning actually did strike him. He's a dick.

That said, we are offended by just about everything now.

Good God, shut the hell up.

"You're being insensitive to lightning strike survivors"

"Uh huh. And I have a taser if you don't fark off"

Lightning Strike and Electric Shock Survivors International...

I've been nailed by an electric fence a couple of times. Do I qualify for membership in the second group?
To clarify; I touched the wire. I didn't pee on it.

Well, they're a small group, but significantly larger than "United Swimmers Bitten by Sharks", "Associated Persons Struck by Meteors" and "The Federation of Powerball Lottery Winners"

I installed one to keep my dog inside the fence. The dog ran under the fence with the electric wire brushing from his head to his tail. I had previously used a tester but after seeing the dog unphased (no pun intended) I tested the setup by putting one hand on the ground and touching the wire with the other. ZAP!
/ Samoyed fur has enough insulation to make an electric fence useless.

Seems to me if you survived a lightning strike you would be proud of your superpowers.

Most of the time, Farkers have given me a Sensible Chuckle. That was a legitimate LOL. Well done.

I'm just shocked (*groan*) they're not howling about snowflakes and cancel culture, especially since they should love Brees. still time to I suppose.

A short time later, PointsBet followed up the statement to admit the lightning seen in the promotional shoot was indeed fake. The gambling company said it was having "a little fun" with Brees and confirmed the 43-year-old was "alive and well."

I hope that electric fence at least bought you a drink and called you the morning after.

There has always been at least one person offended by anything, but now they get pushed out as news.

I just rolled my eyes so hard I sprained something inside my head. Where do I send my outraged letter?
