The National Weather Service estimates that every year, you have a 1/1,000,000th chance of being struck by a bolt of lightning. We’d like to know what the odds are of being hit by a bolt of lightning in the crotch.

Normally, we don’t sit around all day thinking about the numeric probability of losing a game of “Roshambo” with Mother Nature. In fact, we go out of our way not to imagine what just such a feeling would produce. Now, we have no choice.

A man in Madrid, Spain was hit by a fierce bolt of lightning. While that may sound extremely unlucky, it actually finds a way to get unluckier. The lightning struck him in his testicles.

The unidentified 53-year-old was simply walking in a Madrid suburb when the lightning struck him. The powerful force of nature hit him in his coin purse, moved down his legs and finally hit the sidewalk out of one of his feet. The man’s son found him unconscious on the ground and called for an ambulance.

Paramedics transported the man to a local hospital and were able to keep him alive. Doctors also found no problems with his heart and brain. However, his “jigglypuff” sustained some serious burns.

We speak on behalf of every guy when we say we’re hoping for his speedy recovery.
