There will be blood

Bleeding Skull Candle


The ThinkGeek shopping website has featured some pretty cool items in the past, but its curators may have outdone themselves this time with the Bleeding Skull Candle. What is truly awesome about this candle is how ordinary it seems at first glance—“Hey, it's just another skull candle.” Ah, but the beauty begins once it is lit. As the red internal wax melts, “blood” pours out of the left eye and down the front of the skull. It's like watching a horror movie—but in slow motion. Priced at $12.99, it's a good deal, particularly as a gift. The only problem: It's good for just one burn.
