If you have enough of the right Lego pieces, you can build your own lamp.

This phone is not only hideous, it would probably make me sneeze.

Yikes! Gee Larry that's gotta win some kind of hidiousness award indeed. I'm not as worried about sneezing as I am more afraid that it might yap at me and then bite my ankles and cause rabies. "Agh! Get it off me!"

Imagine all of the germs that would be breeding in the fur around the transmitter  :-[

I can only imagine the types of calls made with that phone.

Did that black leather and lace phone come from the office of Elvira, Mistress of the Dark?
If so, have her call me, please.
She needs to make an appointment with me to be cleaned and have her filters changed.
And her car needs some work, too.

Yes, I thought that also, but I think they mean that the leather is laced, like shoe laces. Or better yet, Elvira's boot laces... ;)

That phone looks like a goth kid threw up on it.
I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main roads. Searchin' in the sun for another overload.  I hear you singin' in the wires, I can hear you through the whine, and the Witchita Lineman is still on the line.

There's a 302 under there somewhere.  Elvira aka Cassandra Peterson.  She's really a blonde and much prettier as herself than Elvira, although she's getting up there in age (58).

Ok, for you vintage vehicle buffs, what make and year is that car she's perched on?

Looks to be about a 58 T-Bird would be my guess or maybe a 59.
