His best shot

Somebody up there Whom I don’t believe in took His best shot with a lightning bolt yesterday.

He was wide of the mark by a good 20 metres, but managed to take out a nearby telegraph pole. The ensuing electrical surge fried our landline, hub, data bridge, and expensive laser printer. Somewhat miraculously, our even more expensive iMac computer and stupidly expensive hi-fi system, which are also connected to our local area network, survived the ordeal unscathed.

I wish I could say the same for my underpants.
