: Hi,

: Could anyone tell me the meaning of the following headline:

: John Lennon is alive! Electrifying recent photo

: Thanks a lot.

John Lennon, whom everybody thought was dead, is not dead. I (we) have a photograph, taken not long ago, that will surprise and stimulate you. When you look at this photograph, you will feel as if you had stuck your finger in a light socket.

("Electrifying" is an adjective, like "shocking.")
