Christopher Fountain at For What It’s Worth has this idea for disposing of used compact fluorescent light bulbs:
if voters from all over the country sent them to Washington – how about September 30th? – anonymously, we’d shut down the Capitol while hazmat teams ran around like chickens. I’m sending out a link to this suggestion to all my fellow whacko bloggers, in the hope that readers with dead, burned-out CFLs will save them and, after wiping off fingerprints, mail them on the 30th.
Please help spread the word: September 30 is Send Your Light Bulbs To Washington Day!
