See it light up!

When I think of Cape Breton, I do not think of topless sunbathing. So why would someone make a souvenir of the place that features the torso of a woman wearing nothing but a thong? If I were on the Cape Breton bureau of tourism, I would sue the makers of this monstrosity.

It's bad enough to see yes another sleazy object that only represents part of woman's body. It's made worse because they did such a terrible job representing her breasts. For one thing, they are crooked. Secondly, what's up with the clear plastic boobs, filled halfway with a pink goo resembling Pepto-Bismol®?

The worst part about this tacky lighter is what happens when you flip the lid open. The strobe light action is enough to induce a seizure. On the plus side, you can't really see the pink goo when the lights are flashing.

Breasts and thong on fire!

P.S. I made a movie of the lighter in action, but I'm not going to post it. I don't want to be responsible for anyone's eye trouble afterward.
