Any good Doctor Who fan knows that there are times when you really need to keep your eyes open at all times. Mostly around statues of angels, to be honest. Thanks to the good folks at ThinkGeek, you can now be scared out of your mind all year long. One of the new products on offer going into the Halloween season are these delightful Weeping Angel hanging lights.
Now, I’m guessing that you could probably save these bad boys for the Christmas season and truly terrify any children in your family, but the description that ThinkGeek provides really makes me think you’re going to want them up all year round:
Ten angels. Does a set of ten angels count as a swarm? Er… it looks like the collective noun for angels is “chorus” or “choir.” *twitches* That’s a song you never want to hear. This set of Doctor Who Weeping Angel String Lights contains 10 angels: 5 with their faces covered and 5 attacking. But wait. There’s more! Or there can be. Multiple strings can be plugged into each other, so you can basically have as many Weeping Angels in one place as you’d like. Honestly, one is too many for us. And yes, like we said above, the you can set the lights themselves to blink. We’re not entirely sure what that means in terms of quantum locking, but with Weeping Angels it’s pretty safe to assume it probably isn’t good.
Who doesn’t love a good method of scaring the daylights out of someone? If I wandered into a house with these blinking and winking at me, I would probably run screaming in the other direction – but backwards with my eyes open the whole time to keep them from attacking. Please, friends, do not think that me writing about these means I want you to go out and get them.
If you happen to purchase these and decorate your Christmas tree with them, please send us pictures!
