This Just In!

Touching a hot light bulb can cause burns.

About 985,000 Easy-Bake Ovens sold since last May, manufactured by Easy-Bake, a division of Hasbro Inc., because children can get their hands or fingers caught in the oven's opening, which poses an entrapment or burn hazard.

A burn hazard? From a toy designed to use the heat from a light-bulb to cook pastries inside a small plastic box? Who'd have guessed?

Fortunately, this will no longer be a concern for Californians, whose children will be spared all this senseless suffering, once their "common-sense" light bulb ban goes into effect. Thank you, Nanny, may I have another?

I can see the Craigslist ad now:

Pre-ban Light Bulbs - $300

I've got eighteen (18) 4-packs of 60-watters, six (6) 4-packs of 75's and four (4) 100-watt extra-dangerous assault light bulbs.

All bulbs are brand-new, still in original packaging. Work great in pre-ban Easy-Bake Ovens! Asking $300 for the lot - That's only THREE BUCKS A BULB! I bought these off of eBay before U.S. Attorney General Kucinich shut them down for good as part of his "Capitalism Kills Campaign". Just try getting a deal like this on one of our new government-operated auction websites.
