Spring Has Sprung?

  How awesome is this?  Here it is, not even Spring yet and my bulbs are starting to come through!
  
  Uh, oh, crap!  They're incandescents!


That's all I need.
Another frikkin' letter from that pain-in-the-ass, Al Gore.

  1. Hang on one second Al. While I was laughing hysterically at this I got this massive striking from deja vu... Have you made this joke before? It's hilarious all the same, I love Spring so this makes me happy as well!

    1. I don't think I did. Maybe I did. I'm kinda schizo that way.

  2. Maybe Gore will commend your bright idea? Before suggesting you switch to a more natural way.

    1. 100 watts worth of bright.
      Which can no longer get. I stockpiled a lot of them after Bush signed that dumbass "squiggly light bulb" law.

  4. I wonder what would grow if you planted bulbs. A solar lamp?

  5. Now Al, they do have mercury in them and that's bad for the environment. I mean c'mon if they break, then a whole planet comes out and drama ensues. Think of the planet, our planet.

    1. Naw, the CFLs do. My incandescents just waste energy.

    1. Supposed to near near here later this week. While we haven't had near the amounts other parts of the country have, I'm just so frikkin' sick of winter.

  8. Ha! Well, at least they're not the cork screw CFL bulbs that last for twenty years!

    1. I don't own any of those dumbass squigglies. But, if I did, I think I could get into trouble by sticking them in dirt. Captain Planet may break down my door and carry me away.

  9. I wonder what these bulbs are fertilized with.

    1. As much manure as I could muster.

  10. This is great! Make it an art project, too, and paint them. Use them for Easter eggs. Kids could wear T-shirts: "I went to an Easter egg hunt, and all I got was this light bulb."

  11. Pain-in-the-ass is right. You'll to have to use those things at butt plugs if you want to appease Al Gore.

  12. Maybe you should plant Gore and see what comes up.

  13. Now THIS is funny. :) Seriously though, my daffodils are coming up and they are talking snow tonight... *sigh* Between that and the neighbors cat using our flower beds as a litter box, well... it's not looking good.

    1. Yeah, they're calling for snow tonight, too. Although most of it is supposed to stay south. I can only imagine the daffodils. They poke through the soil only to get snowed on.

    1. Thanks. The thought occurred to me at work as we were looking at REAL plant bulbs. My mind works that way. Scary...

    1. When she found out she said, "Well, I hope you wiped the dirt off them before putting them away. You DID put them away, right?"
      Poor Mrs. Penwasser. Suffering since 1986.

  17. Haaaaaaaa, okay, you caught me, I was NOT expecting that!

    1. Funny, that's what Mrs. Penwasser said on our wedding night.
      And...may I repeat?

  20. Next time try planting LEDs. Mr. Gore wouldn't like the CFLs because of the mercury. Which- by the way- is OK is our teeth, food, and meds just not in our light bulbs.

  21. You can easily fool Mr Gore ...Just paint the bulbs green and voila you have just recycled your save the planet credentials…..
