Don’t worry m’lady! You are safe in my arms! My heavily armoured horse and I will free you from the fiery keep of the horned dragon! Hmmm, perhaps it would be prudent to throw some armour on you while we’re at it, what do you think? M’lady? Crap.

There is a time for every season, yes. And sooner or later it comes time to turn away from the immature and reckless things of youth and become a responsible adult. A responsible, recycling adult.
from Gaby

Hoo boy! If this lamp could talk! The stories it could tell! Yeah, it would probably just tell you about room #219 at the Springfield Extended Stay Suites. And then it would weep softly. The yellow stain is a story for another day.
from Bonnie

Yeah, yuk it up doll thing! You ain’t such a looker yourself, you know. Keep messing with me, and I will BURN this place to the GROUND! Or … just passive-aggressively melt my shade a little bit. Again.
from Jennae

Dear, I think it’s time to have the talk with Stevie. About the birds and the bees. And his habit of capturing birds and bees in mason jars and feeding them handfuls of dried flowers and grass and then turning the whole mess into a shoddy light fixture when they inevitably die. It’s just weird.
from Ann Marie @ White House, Black Shutters

“This lamp would be perfect in my little boy’s room!”
“Oh, he’s into cowboys, huh?”
“Nope, chainsmoking and moonshine.”

And that, children, is when the lights went out in the game room for good, never to be lit again. We leave it hanging here as a grim reminder of what happens when you don’t let grandpa win at canasta.

    My vote has to go for #21 – Brokeback Lamp. No amount of paint of fancy lamp-shade reworks will help that thing!

  2. August 7, 2010 / 5:14 PM

    I 2nd that vote for the Brokeback lamp #21

    “I wish I knew how to quit you”
    ….cause there is NO hope for that lamp!

    I was looking for the princess skull lamp and finally decided you left it off, voted, then noticed the skull in the knight and dragon lamp. Oops. Miss those numbers on your poll.

    I don’t know if I can look anymore…

    Hee hee! I see my ugly lamp made it! I love your captions under it. It DOES look like something happened to it at a sleazy motel!!

  6. August 7, 2010 / 6:45 PM

    Loving this contest! Although I have to admit I like #17. Can I have it, if you don’t want it, Gaby?

  7. August 7, 2010 / 8:24 PM

    I’m enjoying the lamps, but your commentary takes the cake!

  8. August 7, 2010 / 9:03 PM

    I am DYING LAUGHING at the commentary (and some of the lamps!) That is straight hilarious!

  9. August 7, 2010 / 11:02 PM

    LOL My 13 yr old nephew would LOVE the dragon lamp!!

  10. August 8, 2010 / 3:23 AM

    You, my dear, are just too hilarious!

    I was wondering if I would have to come up with a witty description, but was hoping you would since I had no idea HOW I would describe mine (#20). BRAVO, I think you nailed it, haha! 😉

    Elisa: We actually took that puppy down this afternoon to replace it with a DIY chandelier. It’s actually in pieces now because we were trying to figure out what parts we could salvage for the DIY chandelier we’re trying to create. The “bongs” are still in perfect shape though!

  12. August 8, 2010 / 4:23 AM

    I should mention that canopy plate was secured in place with a paperclip. lol

  13. August 8, 2010 / 3:49 PM

    Recycled bongs! Hilarius!

    What were you smoking when you wrote this? Huh?

    I’m voting for that one, just because I loved your commentary.

    Too funny!

    My teenaged sons have no idea WHY I put their dragon lamp in this competition… I’m so glad you guys hate it!

  15. August 8, 2010 / 11:18 PM

    Eeks. I’m a little embarrassed to say that I have lamp 19, but it’s with the shade of #20. For real. But I’ve always thought it was kinda cute. :-/

  16. August 9, 2010 / 1:34 AM

    Hahaha as soon as I saw #21 I thought what every one else has already commented! hahah #21 for sure although #16 is beyond atrocious.

  17. August 9, 2010 / 4:05 AM

    I can’t decide between 16 and 21. Too hard. And I am also embarrassed to admit that I also own 2 of #19. And I have also re-painted them. Now I may have to donate them to good will.
