If you can make another one, just like this, for yourself, then eBay this one. Sign the inside of the eBay one with "by TheIncredibleGox - mariolamp.ytmnd.com" for good measure.

Dang you're getting a lot of flack for making this, after reading the comments... at least you did something neat and constructive and creative for an hour, instead of making demeaning comments on a nerdy website all day like the rest of them. Nothing better to do with your time, downvoters and naysayers? No girlfriend.. Virgin at 34.. He did something cooler than you probably ever have, as simple and menial as it may seem. Jealous much?

July 19th, 2006

Yes. Damn you for turning your boring household item into an amusing conversation piece. You should get a life and go have sex with slutts from clubs and stuff like all the cool people here do. /dripping sarcasm I'd give a 4 because it's not the best YTMND I've ever seen. But I'm giving you a 5 because of the filthy weasels downvoting you for no legitimate reason.

I must say, I'm tempted to try this myself. About the only thing I could possibly nitpick at is the mouth - it could be a bit more closed at the bottom. However, the kickass vine motif on the lamp was worthwhile. Fived for an excellent attempt and succeeding admirably.
