    The above object has, somewhat ironically, become an essential Christmas decoration in many American homes due to the popularity of the movie, A Christmas Story.

    :ugh Watching that movie would make me sick!!

    However, I bought that lamp for a Christmas present for my brother & his wife this year, as that movie is his all-time favorite.

    To be honest - I've never actually made it through the entire movie. I always fell asleep :lol

    Yep, sorry to say CL, but "It's so!" A rambling, boring movie - but gawd, I love that lamp!!

    Rose, I do not have words to express my utter disappointment in hearing you say that.
    It's like finding out that Superman has shit stains on his underwear. [​IMG]

    Aww, Rose. I feel sad that you can't get joy out of something so awesome. But at least we all have sex, right? :)

    I'm not a huge fan of the movie, I don't see what all the fuss is about. But I do enjoy it somewhat, it's quite amusing to see once a year. :) And the lamp is priceless! :)

    The leg lamp sequence is my favorite part of the movie:

    "You used up all the glue...ON PURPOSE!!!"

    The tire scene has stuck with me since I was a kid. So has 'You'll shoot yer eye out, kid'. My parents said the same thing to me when i asked for a BB gun. D'Oh! :(

    "It was the classic mother B.B. gun block: "You'll shoot your eye out." That deadly phrase uttered many times before by hundreds of mothers, was not surmountable by any means known to kiddom."

    One of the most interesting bits of trivia about the movie is that the Red Rider carbine action 200-Shot Range Model Air Rifle (OMG...I've seen the movie so many times I had the entire name memorized!) was never actually made by Daisy, and it had to be specially manufactured for the film. Daisy did manufacture BB guns, and still does I believe...just not that particular (fictional) model.

    But I bet you can get one now, just like you can get that lamp.

    There are Daisy Red Rider models available still today. Just not sure about the '200-shot Range Model' part of it. :)
