How many MSFN 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"

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, and add "Me too"

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"

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

1 to say that there cannot be a light bulb forum under MSFN :D

Ropera has just created it. :)

Ropera, you must be a historian or statistician.

Where did you get those numbers? :D

Well!

1 to say this is an IncredibleJoke. Oh! Incredible joke! :rolleyes:

You mean to ask "tell it in its original form" ?

Or do you mean to say you want to see the source which proves what I said? :)

Just look through the archives of UseNet discussions - this one keeps coming up rather frequently! And this funny has made its rounds on the "Humour" section of most forums on the Internet. Or just PM ropera to ask for the source of this joke....

Yeah...this is why I said it's incredible. It looks like Ropera sorted all situations.

Look! This is prathapml. :rolleyes:

LOL, we are now at this stage from ropera's list above:

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

xper's pointers to how this had already been posted twice before - isn't it hilarious that each of these recyclings of this old joke happened 6 months after each other?
