Double Points!
In the school days QOTW, I wrote about a mental teacher I had called Mr Bod. He was an old-fashioned physics teacher who was always blowing the shit out of stuff waaaay too near us.
As many stories as there are from our class, I have instead decided to tell you a story that he told us, warning of the dangers of electricity.

He and a friend used to have an allotment, where they grew organic veggies, because he thought Tesco was evil. In the middle of the allotment was a pylon.
Mr Bod walked back to the car to get some tools, his friend stopped to scrape mud off his boots with a trowel. He held the pylon to keep his balance, while scraping the mud.

What Mr Bod saw was his friend with his hand on the pylon, shaking about, and assumed he had been electrocuted, causing his hand to grip the pylon.
So he did what all good friends would in the situation...he ran full pelt and twatted his friend with a shovel.

I read that as "retract my dick", and I spent a moment wondering about before realisation dawned.

Well apologies, but I genuinely had no idea it was a myth.
Mr Bod was a prick anyway.
