Lightning conductor/erect penis joke.

Were they naked?
2003-07-14 10:43:36 AM  
no pics. Disappointing.

(In a Norm McDonald voice) "Note To Self: remove metal nipple clamps when prancing naked during electrical storm"

See, jackasses, it's not the way God intended you to be.
2003-07-14 10:45:59 AM  
Did it make the earth move for them?

To recap...Trees+Thunderstorms=Bad!

Serves them right, trying to steal covers from Strom

I'm I the only person who fantisies about being struck by lightning and surviving? Not only that, but gaining superpowers, too? Like being able to have an orgasm at will, or give an orgasm to passing women, or...or..or...
2003-07-14 10:58:36 AM  
They say never to stand too close to a tree during thunderstorms... I guess that goes for all wood.
2003-07-14 11:02:11 AM  
Big thunder clap
2003-07-14 11:03:51 AM  
If they'd been wearing shoes, they would have been less likely to get hit. Nudity kills.
2003-07-14 11:06:32 AM  
Nitpicking: I didn't find the article "scary" as the headline professed. Further, the article says the tree was hit by lightning, not the two people....

Damn big lightening rod!!!
2003-07-14 11:07:26 AM  
Gives a whole new meaning to the term "lightning rod."
2003-07-14 11:07:35 AM  
instant body hair removal!

what do seared pubes smell like?
2003-07-14 11:09:10 AM  
What a shocking development
2003-07-14 11:10:29 AM  
wasted 'ironic' tag oppertunity!

This is exactly the reason why I always wear scale mail armor. It's like wearing your own personal Faraday cage!
2003-07-14 11:27:15 AM  
I guess God don't think Russian Nudists are so pretty, huh ?

Now if He could only send the same message to American Nudists ...

2003-07-14 11:32:27 AM  
I think it's funny that no matter what the topic is, people will try and relate it to God.

It's lightning striking some naked people! I mean, people get struck by lightning every once in a while, it was just bound to happen to some naked people eventually....

Pooty-poot blames the Chechen rebels.
2003-07-14 11:33:53 AM  
I was always taught to wear good underwear in case you had to go to the hospital.
2003-07-14 11:35:55 AM  
It's all fun and games til someone gets their pecker zapped.

/Put some pants on ya Commie Bastards!
2003-07-14 11:51:20 AM  
That's a sweet hat of made of lights that Pooty-Poot is wearing in that pic, Beorn!
2003-07-14 11:52:50 AM  
"of made of"?? Sheesh, I need a nap.
2003-07-14 12:21:47 PM  
gotta love lightning... been within 100 feet of 2 different
strikes, lots more within 1/4 mile. one struck the top of
a pine tree, spiralled down it about halfway, blowing off
the bark as it went, arced over to the house next to it,
removing several square feet of shingles. all this in just
a blink of an eye while I was driving by the house. and
the NOISE is just awesome.

Would you REALLY want pictures of russian nudists? american
nudists are mostly the ones you don't need to see naked-
the russian variety can't be much better. maybe zeus had just had enough...
2003-07-14 12:32:47 PM  
I always make sure I'm tethered to a ground wire at all times when I'm nude and outside. Admittedly I think I could find a more comfortable spot to place the alligator clip than where I have it now.
2003-07-14 12:33:02 PM  
That's much worse than being struck by lightning with clothes on. BTW, I heard we're all naked under our clothes, but I don't buy that.
2003-07-14 12:44:12 PM  
I don't buy it either RingToll. I checked when I was in the shower this morning and the answer is no... still not naked.

It's obvious these nudists were being punished for being ummm... Russian.
2003-07-14 12:44:55 PM  
I bet it hit his lightning rod.

It's not, it's!
2003-07-14 01:36:18 PM  
he.he.. you said 'rod'..
2003-07-14 01:36:33 PM  
Pure genius. Run under a tree during a thunderstorm.
I'd say it was a Darwin Award contender, but they lived.
2003-07-14 02:13:06 PM  
nightbreed: They could still get nominated if they were somehow sterilized by the lightning, couldn't they?
2003-07-14 02:27:28 PM  





Stupid ass know-it-all motherfarker counts down to a post he was dumb enough to think up
2003-07-14 02:29:10 PM  
Thats silly. Thats like saying that everyones naked underneath their clothes, said Magrat.
Magrat Garlik, may you be forgiven. said Granny Weatherwax.
Well, its true!
Im not. Ive got three vests on.

Is someone making hot dogs? I smell fried weeners.
2003-07-14 07:05:17 PM  
well good! that will teach him to be russian!
2003-07-14 09:37:31 PM  
Dear Penthouse,

I was at the russian nudist camp the other day....
2003-07-15 01:22:47 AM  
I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought Pooty poot was wearing a light hat in that picture Beorn put up.

No Soviet Russia jokes, yet.
