This Guy Swatted A Fly And Burned His House Down


I don't know why, but my dog Jet, a pretty brave little dude, is very afraid of flies. So I am often swatting them right away when they get in the house, downright chasing them down to get them so he's not scared. It's not a dangerous proposition, unless you're this guy.....

A Frenchman in his 80's managed to blow up part of his house while attempting to swat a fly. The man was about to sit down to dinner when the irritating fly starting flying around his head. Now I think it takes quickness and some strategy to swat a fly down, but this guy actually had an electric fly swatter! I didn't even know they existed. So Mr. French picked up his electric swatter and started targeting the annoying bug, but was unaware a gas canister was leaking in his home. When the electric sparks hit the gas, things lit up fast. The kitchen was destroyed along with part of the roof. Local sources there say the man was not only lucky to be alive, but also lucky to have only a small burn to his hand. The fate of the fly is unknown, he probably flew away....
