When the Going Gets Weird...

...the weird turn pro. This is seriously weird:

The Minor Fall, The Major Lift: Electricity surging up through sidewalks left at least three city dogs with shocked paws yesterday and had Con Edison crews busy trying to prevent a repeat of last year's pedestrian electrocution. Two Brooklyn dogs were zapped when they stepped on a charged portion of a Clark St. sidewalk, near Hicks St., just after noon yesterday, witnesses and firefighters said. "He jumped up and started screaming," dog trainer Jennifer Bauch said of Cooper, the 68-pound pooch she was walking yesterday in Brooklyn Heights.

"He's normally very calm because he's on Prozac. I knew something was desperately wrong."
