Dim Bulbs-Ted Barlow's on a lightbulb-screwing joke kick. A few more lightbulb jokes to add to the mix. Q: How many Instapundits does it take to screw in a lightbulb? A: Just one. He stands there and allows the world to revolve around him. Q: How many David Heddles does it take to screw in a lightbulb? A: It depends on whether the lightbulb has been predestined to be screwed in. If it has, it takes but one, but God really does the work. Q: How many Orrin Judds does it take to screw in a lightbulb A: A RETURN TO TRADITIONAL SCREWING Lightbulb-Screwing and Crunchy Conservatism (Rob Dreher, National Review)
It's too high tech to go out and buy a metal step-stool with five pages of warnings not to put the stool on top of a beachball. Just use a chair or go borrow Yao Ming for ten minutes.
A good essay on the return of traditional values in home electronic maintenance. Q: How many Josh Claybourns does it take to screw in a lightbulb. A: Rob Dreher has a good piece on lightbulb-changing today. I was talking about the merits of the different ways of changing lightbulbs with some of my friends last night; some opt for stepstools and others opt for chairs. What do you think the best way is? Update: Dr. Byron has more on this. Update2: Kevin Holtsberry has some observations. Q: How many Kevin Holtsberrys does it take to screw in a lightbulb? A: Everyone else has blogged on the lightbulb-screwing issue, including Joshua Claybourn and Mark Byron, but I'll put my $0.02 in. In the old days, we just grabbed a chair and screwed it in. We didn't make a production number out of it. Now, red tape have made it next to impossible to screw in a lightbulb without running afoul of some regulation. We've got a bill in the Ohio legislature to streamline lightbulb-screwing regulations, but it's bottled up in committee. Q: How many Ganns Deens does it take to screw in a lightbulb? A: It's so different screwing in lightbulbs now that Caths can hold the chair steady while I screw the bulb in. Can you guys send me some American bulbs as a belated wedding present? We can't seem to get them here. Q: How many Patrick Ruffinis does it take to screw in a lightbulb? A: The GOP has a good chance of picking up the Hispanic lightbulbs by playing to their family-values and work ethic. I reject the Coming Democratic Lightbulb hypothesis; the Ideopolis lightbulbs will eventually become Republican due to the GOP's support of electricity deregulation.
