The American Welding Society is predicting a collapse of its industry as millions of amateur welders flood the marketplace.
The sudden influx of untrained welders is believed to be the result of people desperately trying to find some ongoing use for solar eclipse glasses that they paid huge sums for.
“When you’ve paid over $50 for a flimsy piece of plastic, the temptation to justify it no matter what can be overwhelming.”
The development is also expected to lead to an oversupply of crappy steampunk art installations, and lots of ER visits.
“We strongly encourage people to repurpose their eclipse glasses into novelty shades for their cat or dog instead.”
