If I got hit by lightning on my ride home

How would the SR play the story?

I suppose it would depend on whether I survived. And, of course, what kind of news day it had been.

Was just discussing this question with colleagues, after one advised me not to get struck by a bolt from the sky this afternoon.

Anyway, I'll send a coveted reporter's notebook to the reader who comes up with the best imitation of a nasty comment that one of my non-fans might attach to the online version of the story reporting my mishap.

You know: “Never liked him. Served him right for riding a bike.” — Muchbrain69

“He deserved it for having a job he loved and for getting attention that should have been lavished on me because I am an angry but unrecognized genius.” — Braveheart22

“Boring.” — sagesuck03

OK, your turn.
