Ugh!

Re pic #2 though, surely this is O.K. so long as the owner used a UL-listed pie tin?

I "invented" that concept 30 years ago, back in the days of the first energy crisis (1973-74). Installed a pie tin reflector in the college dorm laundry room to get more light on the washers and dryers.

Yeah, yeah, leave it to a ham to claim inventing the pie tin

Maybe he wanted to throw a little more light on his "date" in the third pic.

More than just a kick in the pants... Polarity was reversed on that keyless fixture!

As far as the dummy's in the corner.. I was afraid to ask!

Look the good side,at least the dummy was not inflatable. Otherwise looks like a good candidate for a rip out and replace.
