OK, y'all riddlers asked for it:

-How many sociologists does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Twelve, enough to form a committee to write a working paper on "Coping with the Dark"


-How many sopranos does it take?

One to hold it and the rest of us to revolve around her.


-How many WASPs? (I can ask this because I pretty much am one, when I'm not being an ASp )

Two: one to call the electrician and the other to mix the martinis.

As a member of the de facto gutter police I'd like to keep this thread away from the original joke *as *well *as non-offensive in general (yeah, right, road to hell paved with good intentions, etc usw but once one of you miscreants begins the descent I'll gleefully join in)

Have at!

How many Californians does it take to change a lightbulb?

Only one, but the bulb has really got to want to change ...

How many Irishmen does it take to change a light bulb?

100 - one to hold the bulb and 99 to turn da house!

OK, CapK. You're the big California expert now, having been through there and taken the subway and everthang, but.

A) It's not How many Californians does it take to change a lightbulb?

2) It's How many Californians does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

And the answer is

) Californians don't screw in lightbulbs, they screw in hot tubs

- How many programmers does it take to change a light bulb?
- We don't. That's a hardware problem.

- How many programmers does it take to wall-paper a room?
- Twelve, but you have to slice them thinly.

- How many technical writers does it take to screw in a light-bulb?
- Just one, provided there's a programmer around to explain how to do it.

No no no, it only takes one to screw it in, but it's not like he can use it. There's no power left to turn it on!

I have never seen a time and motion study on Californians screwing in lightbulbs. But millions of them screwed up the whole power system by thinking that 8 cents a kwh was a fair price. I never paid less than 12 cents per kwh in the East, and can't figure out how the Californians thought that they were entitled to pay only 8 cents.

Ok, here's a website that has more lightbulb jokes that you can imagine. I think they cover all the bases, here are a couple pertinent examples:

Q: How many lexicographers does it take to change a lightbulb ?
A: Two. One to change it and one to protest that he should have changed it to "light bulb".

Q: How many merkins does it take to replace a light-bulb?
A: One, if you screw 'em in tight enough.

Q: How many Hobbits does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: 1 to complain that the lightbulb isn't working, 5 to hold a meeting to decide what to do about it, 20 to form an expedition to the fabled Lightbulb Mines of Mythrill, 30 to throw a going-away party, 1 to ask Gandalf for directions, 1 to sell into slavery when the directions aren't stuck to, and they end up in entirely the wrong part of the country, and ready cash runs low, 5 get lost through natural wastage (bandits, murderers, monsters, etc,) 1 to be thrown to the Dragon that guards the Lightbulb hoarde, 1 to be thrown to the dragon to cover the retreat, 2 to carry the box of lightbulbs, 5 to find a large, sword-wielding barbarian to escort them home with the lightbulbs, another 30 to throw a safe-return party, 5 to get rid of the barbarian, who in typical style, got drunk at the party, 5 to find an Elf in the neighbourhood tall enough to change the lightbulb, one elf, and 5 to compose ballads of derring-do, heroism, sacrifice and lightbulbs. A grand total of 118.

" How many merkins does it take to replace a light-bulb?"

I have heard of blond pubic wigs, but never one sufficiently fluorescent to light up a room.

I'm speechless at the amount of time, energy and brain power invested in lightbulb jokes! Don't know whether it's evidence of colossal creativity or having waaaay too much time on your hands. (That's generalized "you," Jazz, not you personally.)
