Misleading illustration. It's in two parts, and the idea of using the lamp outline as a canvas for an idea fails entirely, unless I've had Stupid for breakfast. It's a gravity-fed hydro plant, with a dam and reservoir at the top. I follow that. Then I follow the river past the workmen and the lamp in the middle. Then I wonder "ooh, water pouring past an electrical lamp.... eek" but I ignore that because it's a good idea, and I follow the stream past the bulb, down to.... the sky? And another implementation of the original idea. Where there's a *second* dam.

And what looks like a coal-fired power plant beside it.

As I say, I may have had Stupid for breakfast and got this entirely wrong. But it looks like a great idea that had its neck broken on its way to the printers.

Ditto. Someone got really lazy with this one. They didn't have anyone creative enough to think of two different scenes, or to simply make one scene out of the two pieces of the lamp?

This was a good idea that was never executed properly. Shame.

Undeniably cute. *Darling* cute, in fact, and we know where *that* should lead.

Then CP I've had the same for breakfast since I followed that same logic as well.

It's just such a shame to have the 'yepyepYEP' trigger all Pavlov-ready and have it snatched away by broken logic. Hopefully they can fix it in its next life.
