Honey, can I borrow your lightsaber?

I present the following: A photoshop project I did a few years ago, just before Episode II came out. Can you tell what it is? (Besides a lightsaber)

It is…

My wife’s hair-curling iron, with the lever removed in photoshop. It’s always looked like a lightsaber to me, and everytime I see it I want to turn it on and start carving up droids. So, one day I took a picture of the thing and photoshopped it into the picture above.

Okay, I’m done being a dork now. Back to work.

    I have made my own perfect light sabers. You just use
    diamond grade reflective tape and a good flash on a camera.
    It only shows up in a picture. I have a pic on myspace.

    It really looks cool. I’m a collector of StarWars lightsaber replicas, but I don’t have anything like that in my collection yet ;) Thanks for inspiration!
