News, but not the serious kind
Bartender, make me a Flaming Headlight!
Sometimes I feel an obligation to debunk new products as a service to my readers. The latest is the Headlight, a hat that actually contains an open flame.
But before you believe everything that infomercial has to say, consider my valid objections:
* Some restaurant coat-check people won’t accept them.
* Wait’ll the first time you have to tie your shoe.
* If you drive, you pretty much need a convertible.
* Three words: low ceiling fans.
As if that’s not enough, there’s always some practical joker like this guy, pouring milk over the flames when your back is turned. Who needs that?
