Man Snacks On Lightbulbs (Has Eaten 1500 Bulbs)
WYVW ^ | Monday, May 03 2010

A Chinese man has spent the majority of his life enjoying the taste of well-lit snack.

According to "The Metro," 54-year-old Wang Xianjun has eaten more than 15-hundred lightbulbs since he was 12.

Xianjun says broken glass is "crispy and delicious," adding that he developed a real love of lightbulbs when he discovered that they weren't causing his body any harm.

Xianjun says he smashes each bulb into pieces before he eats it and always enjoys a glass of water with his meal.

He adds, quote, "I only eat the bulb during breakfast, and each day no more than one bulb."

Something tells me his filament doesn’t heat up evenly.

“I only eat the bulb during breakfast, and each day no more than one bulb.”

Now class, I want you to sing along with the nearly famous NEWYORKCITYGOPMAN. Just follow me and use the melody of Auld Lang Syne.

“It may be true, for all we know, yes it really may be true.
It may be true for all we know, but it sounds like bull to me.”

I’ve heard of being a light eater, but really, this is ridiculous.

He better stock up on the old bulbs, CFL bulbs have mercury.

I was at a “club’ in Vegas one time and there was a guy in there three or more sheets to the wind and he was eating cocktail glasses. Biting the rim off and chewing it. They escorted him out when the front of his shirt was covered in blood. Craziest thing I’d heard of until I read this.

Think this guy quivers when he has his morning constitutional?

It’s probably a preventative measure on his part.

There’s nothing like a nice coating of powdered glass in the large intestine to make an eel lose his appetite REAL quick.

Seriously, though, whatever trips his trigger, eh?

He SHOULD beware of filamentous growths in his intestines, though.

I'd like to see him do that with some of our new "environmentally friendly" compact fluorescent bulbs.

They are loaded with mercury!!! You break one of these in your home and its and instant hazmat spill.
