I See The Light.................scribbles and bits #96

 

 

 

     “....yes....yes....YES! I have it!! I will call it a ‘Lighting Bug’s Butt‘.”

 

     “Serious?” questioned his assistant.

 

     “Oh my yes. I can see it all now. A Lighting Bug’s Butt in every home and outhouse in this country.”

 

     “Seems like it’s going to be hard keeping a straight face when you pitch it to the investors.”

 

     “Damn the investors! It’s my creation, and it’s going to be Lighting Bug Butts! Say, you‘re not one of those religious cultist that believe electricity is the devil’s piss, are you?”

 

     “Oh no, sir! But, how about calling it something simpler, like maybe ....‘Fire Bulbs’.”

 

     “Bulbs? Like tulip bulbs on fire? Make sense man! Now, just picture hundreds of these Bug Butts hooked into a system of direct current and I’ll be able to Butt light an entire city! God, I love myself!”

 

     “I mean bulbs, like in a globe receptacle with a lit filament, and calling it something more pleasing like, maybe, ‘Glowworm Bulbs’,” reasoned his assistant.

 

     The great inventor hung his head and thought for a moment and then shouted! “I just had another epiphany, for the forth time today! I shall call my invention....’Electric Sun Tears‘!” The next moment, his assistant drove a wooden stake through the inventor’s heart and then danced around the corpse chanting in a strange language.

 

     Two years later, some guy in New Jersey named Tom Edison, invented the incandescent lighting bug butt, but decided to call it a light bulb. This is but another piece of our lost history that’s has finally come to bug butt light.
