I Saw the Light

One thing about the planet having 6 billion people and nothing to do...there's pretty much creativity on any subject you can think of.  Take any ordinary item and you'll find something weird out there on the web.  Let's try it out.  How about lamps?



Ok, we all remember the "Christmas Story" lamp; perhaps one of the most famous of weird lamps.  Not a gift I'd give to an amputee though...


This is one of my favorite; what's not to like about alien cattle abduction?


The blender lamp is certainly safer than the blender aquarium...
 And you thought kids can't build something useful with a bunch of sticks...


Invariably, if you let artists use their imagination...these are some examples of what you will get.  I think that wrecking ball is only good for one hit though...


And we can't forget rock stacking...it seems to still be popular judging from all the stacks I see when I'm out hiking around...

It can be a bitch when one of those stacks is missing when hiking an unfamiliar trail. Not that I've ever gotten lost in the desert or anything...

Hmmmm... At least it's proof that the creative spirit isn't dead. Watching TV often convinces me it is, but looking at stuff like this renews my hope!

What? No garden gnome lamps? For shame.

I feel like a light just came on.


Wow.

I think lamps just ask for artists to outdo each other.

Love the sex lamps, I think every school should have a set on the principals desk.

God bless.

I like the rock one – looks like an inukshuk – and (almost) doable!

Alien cow abduction lamp...it just can't get any better than that. But now I may have to look just the same.

incredible woody - Yes, I like to build a bunch of them and leave confused hikers into the middle of nowhere...

roy - TV has a way of killing the creative spirit...and the physique...and the mental facilities...and...

boom boom larew - The gnomes hoard them! They won't let me photograph them...

reforminggeek - Just make sure it isn't a motorcycle in the road...
mrsupole - Sex lamps for all, that's what I say!

monkey man - It doesn't...

serena - Lamps always make me look brighter...
