So here is an interesting post about making a candle using a hollowed out orange and some vegetable oil as a candle, should you need to do so. It actually looks kind of cool. However, the writer of the instructions, felt the need to caution anyone who might attempt to make such a thing:
"Do not ingest the orange if you have extreme citrus allergies and/or fear of oranges or spherical objects."
Umm…who is afraid of oranges?
Someone asked this question on answers.yahoo.com. No one knew the answer, although one person said, “I don’t know but you are going to get scurvy lol.”
