This was on another forum that I regularaly frequent. I gave me a laugh, so I hope you all enjoy it also.


Q: How many forum members does it take to change a light bulb?

1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed

14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently

7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs

1 to move it to the Lighting section

2 to argue then move it to the Electricals section

7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs

5 to flame the spell checkers

3 to correct spelling/grammar flames

6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid

2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp"

15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct

19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb forum

11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum

36 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty

7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs

4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's

3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group

13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, just to add "Me too"

4 to post about how much better the forum was when they first joined...

5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy

4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

13 to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"

Saw this recently elsewhere, and thought that it might be time to 'bump' this back into view.  Now, if we could just remember it!  ;D

Thanks for the bump, Frank. This was too far back for me to have seen it before, so I got a real kick out of it -- thanks.

I don't have it on this computer but if you wish I have "How many Lawyers" on another computer.

(Only one. to change it from YOUR light bulb to HIS light bulb).. Well that's one answer.

It depends on how bad the light bulb wants to change.

That was a good one. It reminded me of:

Q: How many Microsoft software engineers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: None. they just change the spec to darkness and call in an enhancement.
