You Can Buy Happiness!

posted by on November 27 at 13:26 PM

Cheer Up, Motherfucker! Stave off suicidal ideation with a therapeutic light box from the Indoor Sun Shoppe and a video of Mike Nipper, The Stranger’s chipper receptionist (and Emerald City Soul Club DJ), shaking his sweet, sweet ham to cheerful tunes of his own choosing. What? You’ve never seen Nipper dancing? His slick moves have inspired neo-Nazis to join the Anti-Defamation League and once gave Mother Theresa a hard-on—and they will save your life. Priceless! Opening bid: $1.99.

Those light therapy boxes cost like $400, so if you weren’t depressed before you definitely will be after you shell out that much.

A "light therapy box" is just a fancy-schmancy version of a standard flourescent lighting fixture, which you can buy at any industrial supply or Home Depot type warehouse store for a lot less than $400.

Also, many office supply stores carry full-spectrum UV flourescent desk lamps for around $20 - I'm sitting underneath one right now.
