The Light Bulb Bandit (LBB) is a person of great intrigue at Camp Couchiching. I have made it my personal mission to help shed some light on this mystery. The LBB wears a black or blue bandana on his face, a black Zorro like hat, from which hangs two white light bulbs, aviator sunglasses, and a green trench coat. He first appeared at Cooch during dinner July 18, 2005 to announce his mission to rid the camp of the careless use of lights inside of cabins. His plot is to teach campers the privilege of light through a strict regiment of energy conservation.
The Cooch population has varying opinions of this masked mystery. One counselor noted that he liked the LLB because he promotes energy conservation. One camper seemed satisfied with the use of their flashlight, while another felt it was "just a crazy camper looking for attention"
In this reporter's opinion, his methods are worth writing about. I was fortunate enough to have the privilege of gaining an exclusive interview with this solitary being who otherwise lurks in the shadows of the camp ground. Claiming to work for the International Bandit Corporation (IBC), the LBB has been brought to Cooch as an independent contractor to rid the camp of wasteful energy use. On a personal note, I found the Bandit to be a pleasant person who, however, may be slightly insane. Born in the UK, he enjoys disco dancing and wild parties with extraordinary light shows. Over the years he has collected some 3000 light bulbs and attests that his most prized is one that "shines every color in the world, and then some".
