If this was a cartoon, the first time this lamp was plugged in and turned on it would have burst into flames and turned to a black crisp with smoke curley-q-ing upward. MyMarta bought this, I think in Muncie, but I’ve no doubt it could have been purchased in Broad Ripple, the once-hippie-’property-is-a-crime’-occupied-cool-part-of-town-turned-hippie-owned-turn-for-a-profit-shopping-area.
Had I given any thought to it I would have kept this and used it as a white elephant gift for ThePurgingLutheran Small Group Christmas Hoo-Ha this Sunday after service. I like the history about the ‘white elephant’ gift. In short, Wiki (and TPL) sez ==> “…based on the legend of the King of Siam (played by Yul Brynner) gifting rare albino elephants to courtiers who had displeased him, that they might be ruined by the animals’ upkeep costs.“
