Ugly Lamp Contest: Round Three

Time for the final round!  
Rounds one and two were unsurprisingly dominated by lamps featuring scary babies and feet.  What treasures will this round hold?  Let’s find out!


 


from Sara-Jean 





“What are YOU LOOKING AT!!??  Get out of here before I BREAK YOUR FACE with my TINY FISTS OF FURY!!!   I will START YOU ON FIRE with my SEETHING GLARE!!!  You are about to experience UNSURPASSED RAGE!  Oh, um, can I borrow a lightbulb?”











 

 



from Lori





I have nothing against penguins, but I can’t think of a single decorating instance where this is OK.  Maybe in an igloo?  No.








 

 



from Caitlin





I … have … no words.  What happened here?  Who gave this the green light?  Someone couldn’t bear to toss their beloved but broken pug statue, so they ran a cord up its bum, screwed in a shade on top, and pretended it just got back from the vet?  











 

 



from Mary Lou 





Join us for the ballet of the century!  The Phantom Dancers who Escort You to Hell: Where the Flowers are Black and the Hearts are Blacker!  Billed as “One of the most depressing things you will ever witness.” Get your tickets today!  











 

 



from Sunny





Hand-carved from the trunk of a cypress tree, this candelabra lit the captain’s quarters of a nefarious pirate ship for many years until it a shipwreck washed it ashore.  At least that’s what they told me when I bought it for six bucks at the swap meet. 











 

 



from Jen





Tree trunks?  Petrified poo piles?  Idol gods of a prehistoric religion?  Overpriced at $10 each?


Maybe, probably, could be and YES.

  1. There are no words…
    Ballet dancers beat ugly …
    Hands Down!!!

  2. WTF – that dog!!!!

    And the creepy gu a close second.

  3. I dont think raging man is a lamp. it looks like someone stuck that guy in front of another lamp.

  4. Those dancers are going to haunt my dreams for days to come. They’re like Arabian Angels of Death.

  5. Nope, the deer feet are much worse!

  6. Nope, the deer feet are much worse!

  7. Nope, the deer feet are much worse!

  8. I honestly cant even choose this time.

  9. Hmm…that’s a tough one. The headless dog is an obvious first choice, but it does have a Surrealist quality about it. If you pooped it in a gallery with a little card under saying it was by Dali, people would think it was both priceless and thought-provoking.

    I’ve gone for the creepy guy. But those deer feet are going to haunt my dreams.

  10. Hahaha, I am laughing at my desk right now at the angry man lamp! I can’t imagine who would use that lamp, besides an anger management therapist!

    These lamps are hysterical, I’m sad that this is the last round!

  11. These are all winners!!!

  12. Just when I think the lamps cannot get any uglier, they do. This is a great contest!!!

  13. My mom had a lamp for years that I thought was pretty ugly (mid-century, 3 basketball-sized globes, one each of orange, yellow, and green, each shooting off in different directions with fake plastic greenery around the base!) It was awful! But I couldn’t find a photo of it.

    Wouldn’t have mattered, mom’s lamp looks like the height of elegance compared to these horrors!! How do the owners of these gems sleep at night??? Nightmares must abound!

  14. Oh my ~ where do I start??? this is great… I will go with #13

  15. Its really not fair. This whole thing was a bad idea!! Really?! Who can just vote for just one of these?! A few of these will haunt my sleep, I just know it.

  16. Yeah, I’m gonna need more than one vote on this one. How to choose?! Wow – the guy, the dog, the “dancers”… Oy!

  17. I just can’t believe that these things actually exist! And at some point, someone liked these things!

  18. So ugly! I had no idea such lamps existed! Gag! lol

  19. OMG! That creepy guy looks EXACTLY like the farmhand we had when I was growing up. He was constantly getting turned down for dates. Can’t imagine why!

  20. Your descriptions leave me with tears of laughter running down my face and words won’t even come out of my mouth because I’m laughing so hard. You are missing your call as a stand-up comic!

  21. Your descriptions leave me with tears of laughter running down my face and words won’t even come out of my mouth because I’m laughing so hard. You are missing your call as a stand-up comic!

  22. Your descriptions leave me with tears of laughter running down my face and words won’t even come out of my mouth because I’m laughing so hard. You are missing your call as a stand-up comic!

  23. Plumyumi, I think you’re right! Raging Man is NOT a lamp! If you look closely behind him, you can see the base of the REAL lamp…

  24. This is seriously mind blowing. Each one is worse than the last!

  25. Is angry man supposed to be The Incredible Hulk?

    These are all so bad. I actuallly like the candelabra.

  26. I think i’m going to have to kill myself after looking at those lamps, or rip my eyeballs out. Holy mother of god, i can’t even choose one…

    Cindy

  27. I think this contest is rigged…all of these are serious contenders for the ugliest lamp and we have to pick between them? When I first saw the ugly guy, felt he was the winner, but then, the ballet couple, the dog, those melting trees…
    How could anyone manufacture these things and an even better question–why would anyone buy them?

  28. Boy there really are some super ugly-”mafugly” lamps here! But ya know, if the ballet dancers one was spray painted all white, it not be so bad…for that weirdly eclectic/what the heck? sort of look :-) Still, the tree trunks/petrified poo lamp got my vote for worst!

  29. Oh my – I was thinking my fish lamp was really bad but now I think it’s actually pretty cute – some of these lamps are just plain scary!!

  30. round three was definitely hard to choose from since they were all equally ugly.

  31. HAHAHAHA!!! I have tears rolling down my face I am laughing so hard!!!! How can I even pick one!!!!

  32. its a tie, their all terrible.

  33. I can’t decide. They are all so horrible. I think I have to go wash my eyes out with something.

  34. I can’t even vote on this round. They are all just so unbelievable, I can’t pick just ONE!

    The dog wtf? the angry dude. cripes. and life-size ballet dancers as LAMPS. crap on a cracker. It is all too much. :O

  35. I am loving this contest. And it’s so hard to choose. Man! It’s not so much that there are ugly lamps, but people actually displayed them in their houses (or dungeons or asslyums)!

  36. ok wait — when I first saw the ballet lamps I thought they were life-size! something about the scale of that pic lol!

    oh– the petrified piles of poo– I could see that in a super-expensive modern design magazine. Seriously.

  37. These are some “different” lamps thats for sure. Maybe try this for inspiration: http://ninjadiva.blogspot.com/2011/09/mosaic-lamp.html

  38. Creepy – the angry man’s shirt matches the base of the lamp next to it perfectly.

  39. *tiny little voice*

    I actually kind of like the dancer lamps.
