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 [Linked Image]

"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 [Linked Image]

"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. [Linked Image]

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.
