Peter Mansbridge Tells Us Something About The Leg Lamp

CBC anchor Peter Mansbridge came by the GST studios to talk about a great prop from the holiday film A Christmas Story — the leg immortal lamp

The lamp, created by Canadian Henry Piersig, has become quite a talking point over the years.

Said Mansbridge when he got to see a leg lamp up close: "I think we can all agree. This is one helluva lamp."
