Oct 3 2007Mario Mushroom Lamps Lack Power-Ups
Brando.com.hk is selling these mushroom lamps, which resemble the shrooms from Mario Brothers. They're powered by 4 AA batteries, and their illumination comes from 2 white LEDs. You mash the top to turn them on and off, which is fun. They cost $12, which isn't too shabby, and come in the colors shown above. Just don't take a bite of one for a midnight snack. The last time I ate a shroom that looked like that I spent six hours having a heart to heart with my neighbor's garden gnome. Great guy.
