LMAO - great story
Yesterday changed my life.
I now have a newfound respect for things.
I appreciate the little things more, and now I will always triple check to make sure the fence is unplugged before I mow.
Right up until your wife plugs it in again for you, helping out.

Thanks! It makes me feel better about my last week. Heck, at least a month or better. Tears still forming in my eyes.

Lew, you cheated...
I know how it feels to pee on that damn cow wire (on Puls).
Damn it, I didn't know what was worse: In fact 2 seconds can become hours in such a situation. Did several things at a time.
pitty you / grin:"your own fault" / feel the ache myself / the ball(s) crumbled / fear what might have happened / snapped for fresh air, as my brain couldn't decide laugh or make my conscience suffer those memories again.

Reading news these days really make you ask, what is real, what is fake? Because reality became so strange, only a few years ago nobody could have imagined.
Lew, today you really caught me on Saint Innocence day (Dez 28th / April 1st)

Hope you do not have to defend yourself never against hooligans, I know too what that means... A Scottish soldier boot caused 8 years of not knowing what a day without pain was.
Best wishes.

Glad it was a story and did not happen to you. If it were true, your foil hat would have melted into your scalp and you'd now look like a stainless mixing bowl with handles.

I've heard stories of hunters peeing on fences and always wondered if what they said happened was true. I guess if you have enough minerals in your urine, you are gonna get zapped in the most hideous of ways.

Good story. I think I'm going to use it after I doctor it up a bit to sound like it is really coming from me.

Lew,

I must thank you again for posting this. I doctored it up a bit so it would fit where I live and sound more like me and sent it to a bunch of friends. I'm already getting replies back from people who were still laughing as they typed. One friend, another serious rider, was tossing down beers at the VFW and he read it out loud from off his phone. He said some women were running to the bathroom to pee they were laughing so hard. He told me if I'm ever in town, beers are on the VFW.

I'm truly looking forward to the other responses I'm going to get. So far, everyone thinks this really happened to me.

I owe you a cold one or two. Hell, let just head to that VFW over by Boston and let them buy the beers.
Regards,

Oh- salt water (urine) is a very good conductor. I tripped over an electric livestock fence once and got it tangled around my ankle. When I tried to throw myself away from it, it just tangled worse and made it tighter. Wound up face down on the ground twitching with every pulse OW OW OW! OW! OW!

Finally tore myself free of it, but not before I got a dozen good jolts.

My younger brother whizzed on an electric fence on a dare. He has weird kids. Coincidence?
