How many list members does it take to change a lightbulb?

One to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has
been changed.

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

Seven to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.

Seven more to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about
changing light bulbs.

Five to flame the spell checkers.

Three to correct spelling/grammar flames.

Six to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ...

Another six to condemn those six as stupid.

Fifteen to claim experience in the lighting industry and give the
correct spelling.

Nineteen to post that this group is not about light bulbs and to
please take this discussion to a lightbulb (or light bulb) forum.

Eleven to defend the posting to the group saying that we all use
light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this group.

Thirty six 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.

Seven to post URLs where one can see examples of different light

Four to post that the URLs were posted incorrectly and then post
the corrected URL.

Three to post about links they found from the URLs that are
relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group.

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

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

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

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

Three to tell a funny story about their cat and a light bulb.


One group lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now
with something unrelated they found at snopes.com and start
it all over again!

PLEASE --- It's supposed to be funny!! :lol:

I checked on Urbanlegends.com and none of that is true... :lol:

Actually, a LOT of it is pretty close to true!

What's your point re: light bulbs?

It is more than funny, actually :P

I think the bulbs in the super cub are better and brighter than the bulbs in the husky. You can chime in now Mike. :wink:

Yeah, Mike, I was pondering how to work in a comment on 'dim bulbs' -- in Texas those are aggies -- oops, 'scuse me --Aggies -- guess on SC.org they're 'Husky' drivers. :lol:

Well, ya know there was an airplane called the "Ag-Husky".

Hey, I don't like these things cause you can't flash em.

If you can't flash it, why have it?

Well, you're right, of course, Mike. I have heard people say, "Flaunt it, if you've got it!" I guess I misunderstood what they were talking about! In this case, however, I think Yard Dart's motto might have some bearing on the situation, "Smoke 'em if you got 'em!" :lol:

Musket, that was toooo funny! And way tooo true! :lol:
