Default FUNNY - How many List Members?

How Many List Members Does It Take To Change A Light Bulb>

One to change the light bulb and a second to post that the
light bulb has been changed (the first does not have email).

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 or grammar errors in the 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.

One to post the old joke about "Hams don't change light bulbs,
they redesign the ciruit to use LEDs".

Fifteen to claim experience in the lighting industry and give
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 / mailing list / chatroom / whatever.

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

Two to say "I'm having to change lightbulbs tomorrow at work
therefore it is relevant to ME".

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 (bracketed inside < and > characters so that
word wrap does not break the URLs).

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 are quiting the list because
they cannot handle the light bulb controversy.

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

Thirteen to say "Google is your friend", or "Do a Google search on
light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"

Three to tell a funny story about their spouse/cat/dog/parrot/whatever
and a light bulb.

Neil WA6KLA posts and says "I have 20 file cabinets of light bulb
manuals here, let me pull the correct one out for you and give you
the part number."


One group lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from
now and start it all over again.
