His Pocket Change Was Fused Into a Lump of Metal
Applecore Pincushion was struck by lightning while standing in a storm attempting to sink a birdie putt. The strike burned an internal trail from Pincushion’s left ear, through his liver, all the way down to his inside right ankle. Applecore attended meetings of lightning victims. Some of them no longer felt pain. Others couldn’t smell or taste anything. One man was so impervious to cold that he could be out in sub zero weather wearing only a shirt, shorts, and sandals and not notice a thing. Applecore lost his long term memory. He kept asking people why he was limping.
