Estate agent wants to kill penguins with illegal lightbulbs

2 September 2009

Yesterday we reported on the demise of the 100 watt lightbulb, which is slowly disappearing from shops’ shelves for good. But one man has spotted a gap in the market and is poised to make it big once the powerful bulbs become as rare as hen’s teeth. Plus, he’s an estate agent by day, so you can trust what he says!

He’s Jules Bending (crazy name, crazy guy) and he has been stockpiling thousands of the bulbs in a secret location near the Mendip Hills. Jules’ logic is that once Old Hundred Watty disappears for good, naysayers of energy saving will gladly pay him his asking price for a single 100 watt bulb. And his asking price? Why it's between £40 and £60 of course!

On trade website EstateAgentToday, Bending is quoted as saying: "Everybody hates an estate agent: the horrible suit, the nasty jargon. If you introduce a note of humour people seem to like that. They trust us. And trust is the holy grail."

No Jules. We’ll never trust estate agents. You’ll never make us laugh. Ever. Apart from when the credit crunch forces you out of business. We’ll always hate all estate agents Jules. Especially you. You’re a twat. Now do one.

    It would be amusing to see him PHYSICALLY kill a penguin with a 100w bulb.

    @ Craig, I'd rather see a penguin PHYSICALLY kill Jules Bending with a 100W lightbulb. P.S. I hate the abbreviation "Jules" too.

    Are there other ways to kill a person other than PHYSICALLY? Mentally?

    @fayshun. I just want to see someone or something killed with a 100w Bulb, might make BitterWallet a bit more interesting.

    @Mike Hock: Metaphorically, socially, virtually, killing them softly with your song.

    A waste of money, I heard that industrial light bulbs are exempt from the legislation, they just have to have for industrial use on the box, the only difference being is the glassis toughened. the bulbs sell at £1 each and are available on the net easily.
