Bond: My Kingdom For A Light Bulb

Wallace, Idaho – There we were at our neighbourhood drug-dealer’s the other day – legal drugs, that is: Lavigne’s apothecary store in Osburn – when, behold, there gathering dust on a shelf was a stash of the mighty General Electrics 100-200-300-watt three-way incandescent, mogul-based light bulbs. And Osburn Drug was closing them out. Like Philip Seymour Hoffman snatching up bindles of heroin for his last big ride, we latched on to all four of Lavigne’s remaining bulbs, and at a close-out price, no less. Our bill at the till: $17 – $10 for all four bulbs, another $7 for the scrip. We paid up and walked out happier than we’d been since Denver lost the Super Bowl/David Bond, Wallace Street Journal/Lou More here. (Photo: Wikipedia)

Question: How many contraband light bulbs do you have in your home?
