This Reuters report is fascinating and a little on the odd side. The man who came up with this idea is definitely creative!
A Japanese inventor has created a way to utilize an electric eel to light up a Christmas tree. Since the eel is a common food in Japan, one has to wonder once Christmas is over if the eel will become New Year's dinner.

A short video showing the set up is available with the article at the MSNBC website.
