    Darn lucky I didn't get electrocuted!

    Freakin' HO son did the wiring.




    I repair air conditioners to keep people cool when it's 110+ degrees outside.
    I repair heaters so people don't freeze to death.
    I shut down furnaces that are unsafe to operate.
    Make fun of my profession, but dang it, I save lives.

    We're awl pawthetic and kweepy and can't get giwrls. That's why we fight wobots.

    Kid you not... My dad is colorblind and works for the city as an electrician. Oh, and he's an alcoholic.

    There's a recipe for disaster.
