FLOWER MOUND, TX—Pastor and author Matt Chandler has been tapped by the state of Texas in order to provide much-needed wind power by standing atop a wind turbine pole and rapidly waving his arms about his person.
Chandler was given a post to work part-time several days a week at a newly constructed wind farm near Dallas. The pastor scales the tall structure, and after a brief warm-up begins whirling his arms in a rapid circular motion, as electric wires hooked up to his muscular system harness the immense amount of power he generates.
“I do a lot of sermon prep, book work, and administrative stuff all day, you tracking with me?” he told reporters, who acknowledged they were in fact tracking with him. “So making a little extra dough on the side while practicing my animated preaching gestures is a great way to get out of the office for a couple hours a day. And it’s great to be able to give back to the community a little of the enormous amount of energy God gave me.”
“Beats other jobs like flagging down aircraft or acting as a motor for a pirate ship or something,” he added.
Chandler was asked to scale back his power generation after overloading the state’s power system.
