It's (something, something) gone mad, I tell you.

From the instructions for a new purchase:

"Use a qualified electrician for installation of this lighting fixture.
Before installing fixture disconnect power by turning the circuit breaker or by removing the fuse at the fuse box . . ."

It was only a bloody reading lamp!

Mind you, it reminds me of the joke: How many Rye housewives does it take to change a light-bulb?

Two. One to call the electrician and one to mix the cocktails.

  1. That was an old light-bulb joke that I stuck the word "Rye" into. You'd never get an electrician that quickly around here, they're all working on building new MacMansions.

    Maybe "one to call the handyman and one to book the tennis court" would have been more accurate.
