Glad to Know that Someone is Thinking...Sort of

I've posted before on the strange items that are out there for sale but I found another one that truly needs to be shared. I got a packet of those "must be seen to be believed" advertising coupons in the mail. This was among those "must haves."

"A candle for the modern age. 3" circumference in high quality wax and available in a choice of fragrance. But our candle lets you avoid all the inconveniences of old fashioned candles. Just flip the switch hidden in the bottom of the candle and your candle glows invitingly. No messy wick and no dripping wax. Requires 3 AAA batteries."

The old saw used to be "If it looks like a duck, and it quacks like a duck...then it must be a duck." Not going to work with this candle.

Some frummie with time on their hands needs to look into the implications of this type of candle for Shabbos and Yom Tov use.

Somehow "layehudim hoiso orah" loses its fizz with a battery operated candle. Can just see the Brooklyn silver stores selling havdoloh holders in the shape of the Energizer bunny.
