So, the stores are doing their annual "let's see much money we can get people to spend" thing, and the Sunday papers are thick with flyers. And the one thing all the flyers seem to have in common is the leg lamp.
Come on, you know what I'm talking about. That movie, "A Christmas Story", with the little kid who wants a BB gun for Christmas, and his Dad "wins" the leg lamp"? And it comes in a box marked "Fra-GEE-lay"?
The first time I saw the leg lamp for sale was in a PBS catalog a few years back. I admit, when I first saw it, for about .04 seconds, I was all, like, "OMG! So funny! Must have!"
And then I came to my senses and realized what it would be like to have to look at the damn thing every day.
But I have to wonder, am I missing the boat here? Is the leg lamp the next big thing? Do you have one? Do you know anyone who has one? Is anybody buying these things?
