All 7 and we'll watch them fall
They stand in the way of love
And we will smoke them all

I'm somewhat ashamed to say I recognized those Prince lyrics.

And in other news, while experts were trying to find out what was frying the workers, a man with Cucumber Melon scented lotion kept sneaking under the lights in the employee area.

a six foot long insect repellant light?

Might be a good prank to change your boss's lightbulbs for UV bulbs.

Or you might go to jail.

No mention of suing the guys who sold the light? What has this county come to!!!

In other news, sun bathers wonder why new tan bed gets rid of their roach problems.

/I got nothing, but there is something funny in the idea that a insect light might have gotten sold as a tan light..

He got seven at one bulb!

/Obscure?
 
2006-06-17 06:22:24 PM  
Well that wasn't very bright of them.

Ugh. I went to see a sketch comedy performance by a two-person group, one of whom was a Daily Show writer - they were terrible. One skit's entire premise was that one guy would say something and follow it up with "OR WILL THEY?" or "OR IS IT?". Now I can't hear anything like that without vomiting a little. I couldn't understand how the guy got onto the DS writing staff.

/don't bring up "Jim's farkable Pet Store", either

My fishtank has a MH light that will cook your skin if you're working on that side of the tank. But, that's on purpose.

It took them 2 weeks to figure that out? The store that sold them the bulb isn't the only group of idiots here.

It took experts over two weeks to find the cause.

Experts? Says something about the UK educational system.

another BS story from the Sun , er... Mirror (whats the diff?)

I own a Tanning Salon in Port richey ...no f-ing way a bulb that long would go in conventional fixtures . and the smaller ones are made for specific types of tanners.

I'm with jwmc1971. I call shenanigans.

Wouldn't all of the tanning bulbs, no matter the size, have a specialty connection on the ends, so they only work in tanning beds?
