Redneck Struck Twice By Lightning At 'Rednecks With Paychecks' Event: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Texas man said he was not seriously injured when he was struck by lightning twice at a Rednecks with Paychecks event.


Casey Wagner, 31, who works as a rodeo clown, said he was attending the off-road racing event Saturday in St. Jo, Texas, when severe weather rolled in and he was left standing under a tree with his friend`s father.

`What I remember is just a loud boom and it dropped me to my knees and then it hit me again,` Wagner said. `When I got hit, it was just two big ol` flashes and then sparks went everywhere.`"


Who was headlining the Rednecks with Paychecks event, Honey Boo Boo and her clan?

"Rednecks with Paychecks" is a phrase that instills fear in normal folks, imagine a bunch of rednecks hitting Walmart and filling up their pickups with giant bags of pork skins, grills for barbequing road kill, cheap cosmetics and country CD`s.

You don`t need to be a rocket scientist to discern that the Rednecks with Paychecks event wasn`t an outdoor symphony performance. The event involved off-road vehicles, mud, and I`m quite sure tons of moonshine and plenty of chewing tobacco.

The dude who was struck twice by lightning was a rodeo clown, I`d bet that there were no lawyers, physicians or rocket scientists at the event.

If a redneck gets struck twice by lightning, you can assume that God don`t cotton to rednecks, especially rednecks with paychecks.
