22. my husband came home one day and told me how they were banning incandescent bulbs
and you won't be able to use easy bake ovens anymore. i said they didn't ban incandescent bulbs. they just have to be more efficient. my guess is he heard that from my brother who listens to glen beck and faux noise. you would think by now bob would know to be suspicious of anything he hears from pat. especially if he heard it from glen beck or fox.
