This Wendy's Got Struck by Lightning, Because Florida

Who doesn't love Wendy's? Zeus, apparently, since he saw fit to whip a lightning bolt at one in Gainesville, FL, on Sunday. Because Florida doesn't have enough weird shit going on already.

Hollin Hoffman, the man who captured the awesome deific smiting, said he was recording video of the torrential downpour when the Wendy's in question was struck by a bolt from Mount Olympus. Fortunately, the hit looks like more of a glancing blow, since the building doesn't seem to have suffered any severe damage in the video. We can only hope no chicken sandwiches were harmed in the process.

Gianni Jaccoma is a staff writer for Thrillist, and given the messed up stuff Zeus has done in the past, he thinks this Wendy's got off light. Follow his classical tweets @gjaccoma, and send your news tips to
