    Admission : I'm struggling with the list.

    I took myself literally and couldn't get away from the image of screwing peoples heads on and off.

    Then I thought about the box of lightbulbs in the garage which are all bayonet bulbs.
    We only have screwtops in the house. I just keep buying bayonet bulbs.
    Guess I'm a bayonet type of guy.

    So,who would have the best head for a bayonet bulb I thought?
    Herman Munster
    Frankenstein
    Richard Simmons?

    What's that got to do with acronyms for fruit and vegetables? I hear you ask.

    Breathe a new attitude nearly as stupid.

    Ok.

    I now really want celebrity headed light bulbs for my house.

    My top 3.

    1 Me,obviously. If your seen my head you'd know all about it.
    2. Spock. Every house needs more Spock.
    3 Darth Vader. I just want to light up his head against his will for some reason.

    So,my question for you is, and I'm sure you've been asked this many times :

    What are your top 3 heads you'd want to see in a celebrity head shaped light bulb?

    Bayonet or screw top?

    Be careful. Once you've read this,its very difficult to stop imagining screwing the heads off all the people you see.

    Not like that!

    :)

    I had to look this up first, as I did not know what a bayonet bulb was. It's not a system I've seen in North America:

    Most common in canada is the screw cap.

    Einstein, because his profile is so recognizable.
    Edison or Tesla, because electricity.
    Spider man, because we need one that looks good hanging upside down.

    That's what I want. What I think we will actually get is just the generic Mickey Mouse silhouette that is stamped onto everything at Disneyland, and this guy from Buck Rogers:

    If you use the heads of Veggie Tales characters for your lightbulbs you could say there is an association.

    I love the way the military installs all those kind of bulbs in multiple fixtures, at the same time.

    "FIX......................... BAYONETS!" :p

    Humpty Dumpty was the first that came to mind, found him creepy as a child.

    Mia is right -we only have screw tops here, never seen a bayonet. But do you ever wonder why you're in the dark?

    Actually this thread nearly made me nauseous thinking of all the variations of fluorescent bulbs...and how non-standardized they could be. So much so that for a while whenever my kitchen overhead lights went out, I actually had to cut and shape the plastic on the bulb's connection to make it fit in the overhead fixture.

    I used to cringe whenever those light bulbs died. Luckily after so many years the management changed the entire fixture to accommodate LED bulbs you simply screw on. No more jury-rigging light bulbs! :)

    All of my lights require bayonets. There are long bayonets and short bayonets btw. They aren't interchangeable either.

    Headwise I would like, the Cheshire cat from Alice in wonderland, he sometimes appeared just as a head; & maybe Topcat and Barny? Or the 3 Aristocat kittens?

    When I was reading this, all I could think of were the heads of people that I thought their heads were screwed on wrong. So let me try to get that thinking out of my head and come up with a positive for me. Of course, naturally I'd want Bullwinkle with the moose antlers sticking out from the bulb. Then tried to think of who would be the brightest bulb in the box, so maybe Einstein. Then George Harrison but I won't try to explain that one.

    The original post jumps from one topic to another in a completely nonsensical way.

    This whole thread is an utterly meaningless waste of time.

    I love everything about it.

    More, please.

    Edit, to explain myself: What I love about it is that my mind skips around this same way, like a chess knight on a diesel-powered pogo stick jumping all over the board. In polite conversation, I have to keep it reigned in and only say one of the top 3 results my Head Google returns. It's fun to see signs that someone else's mind jumps all over the place, too.

    Unfortunately that is the only one you need to explain.

    Remember the lightbulb will be soundless. Is that the reason?

    The joy at his soundless lit up head.

    (I still listen to him occasionally)

    Seems like I kept buying only one kind of the wrong bayonet.

    Still unusable but I'm calling it a win.
