When Plastic Attacks!


(I found this one in my office supply catalog)

“Halogen Gooseneck Desk Lamp with Fan. Adjustable gooseneck lamp features built-in fan with independent control switch. 5" diameter silver shade. Two-prong plug. Includes 20W halogen bulb. 19" High Black/Silver $50.00”

Let's see: disgustingly ugly sci-fi-inspired halogen lamp with a tiny, laughably underpowered fan that won't even blow the dust off your desk. No thanks, I’d rather do my work in the dark. For $50.00, you can get a better looking lamp, and a 10-inch fan. What a waste of good plastic. Great for 12 year-old boys, though.
