A bright idea
Remember Bob Clark’s 1983 film, A Christmas Story? It’s a hard flick to avoid this time of year, but in case you’ve forgotten here’s a refresher. The two most memorable scenes in the movie involve A. a tongue and a frozen flagpole and B. the arrival of cinema’s most notorious anatomically correct piece of furniture: “the Leg Lamp.” I’ll be the first to admit, the Leg Lamp worked in an “amazing-as-long-as-something-like-that-never-enters-my-home” kind of way. Call it high kitsch, call it a disaster, or call it sublime, the thing wouldn’t even look good as décor in the slummiest of frat houses or in a TGI Friday’s washroom.
