A Charlotte County couple is cleaning up after their toilet exploded. MaryLou Ward said she, her husband and her three dogs were lying in bed, listening to the rain and thunder, when they were blown out of bed.

“It was the loudest noise I’ve ever heard it just went BOOM.” Ward said. “We got out of bed and came over here, and the toilet was laying on the floor.”

Her porcelain toilet had exploded into pieces.

A-1 Affordable Plumbing, the company helping clean up the mess, said lightning struck near the home’s septic tank. That combined with the methane gas in poop caused the bomb-like effect that traveled through the pipes, exploding the toilet in their master bathroom.

The plumbing company said this is just as rare as getting struck by lightning yourself. Luckily, the mess will be covered by insurance.

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
