Something caused a short, which fried your phone. Check your wall outlet to see if it is a 3 prong outlet and properly grounded. You will get a nice shock if the outlet is not properly grounded. Also, make sure your electronics are plugged into a surge protector so your expensive electronic items don't get fried when there are spikes and drops in the electricity flow. APC is a good brand and those squid looking surge protectors are also a good bet.

What would cause my Troy Built Pony to suddenly stop

That sounds perfect. When the motor turns over, ten thousand (approximately) volts push a whole lot of electrons out to the end of that wire. If they don't have someplace better to go (through the spark plug, across the gap, and to a good ground), they just jump out anywhere they can (into your hand), and dash through you to ground (wherever else you're touching the machine.

The spark plug body (the big metal end) MUST MUST be touching the frame or the engine, or it won't spark - those electrons have noplace to go.

Did you get the right plug? Is it a good plug? Is it gapped correctly? If all true, and if the machine STILL won't start, then the problem doesn't appear to be an ignition problem.

I touch the on/off button on the Prima TV to turn

I am sure you had some strong static electricity. The static spark arced to inside of the TV in to the circuit board. Many of the low cost TV sets have poor static electricity protection.
In most cases there is damaged caused by static shock to electronic devices.
Just for curiosity, you can try unplugging the set from the AC mins and plugging it back in to do a simple reset, in case there is no damage and some logic device became hung up.
Last year I picked up my mobile phone and got a static shock from it. I had to get a new phone. This phone never worked again!
