I thought it would be funny to post this picture.

I wonder how long it took to install this fixture?

Found in a Frat house in NJ.

Conversation over a keg:

"Dude, we need more light."
"No problem bro, my dad's brother's second cousin is one of those electric guys."
"Rock on! Maybe he'll put a light up there."

(Several hours, one phone call, some tin snips and an empty keg later

"It's up, guys. Y'all just need some bulbs."
"Dude, you rock! Tell my dad's bro I said Woah."

(At the next keg party

"Man, why'd we put that light up? Now all the chicks are UGLY!!"
"No prob, dude. Just take the bulbs out!!"


Oh yeah, love the ballast support too.

At least the didn't knotch the framing, the light can be fixed/removed/disposed of. And at least it didn't burn the joint down while it was operational, although it could have.
