    . . . because we now know that an electric eel can light up a tree.
    Noeel, folks!

    An electric eel in Chattanooga, Tenn., is sparking a little holiday cheer.

    Every time Miguel Wattson the electric eel releases a jolt of electricity, a festively-decorated Christmas tree next to his tank at the Tennessee Aquarium flickers and glows.

    "There is a sensor directly in his exhibit that picks up when he produces electricity," Aquarist Kimberly Hurt, who cares for the electric eel, tells NPR.

    The aquarium had already connected the sensor to a soundboard and a light board to correspond with Wattson's bursts, says Hurt. "It'll light up the board. It also does make some noise so people can hear when he's producing electricity."

    So it wasn't a huge leap to also have Wattson's sensors connected to a Christmas tree, for a seasonal spin on the display.

    I have an Epi EL-00 Pro. This EL lights up the living room everytime I start playing it ... and it don't have to be Xmas season either.;)

    Play into a Shure 57, for starters.

    An acoustic eel would play “Wonder Wall.”

    I think they are more like trains: if it’s not an electric eel it’s a steam eel...

    A whole lot of point-missing going on here. What we should focus on is the fact that someone named an eel. An eel.

    I'm not sure there was ever a steam El. US steam buffs please enlighten me.

    An Acoustic Eel would complain about the other Eels being electric.
