lightbulb jokes

Yes, I admit it. I got a bit burnt out in the blogging business. 40 posts in 30 days is too, too much. And I have far too many blogs in my feedreader. And I’m busy with work. And busy with life. And I’m just really tired. I need to go to sleep.

So, even though I have a bunch of posts in progress, and owe some stories based on that done/not done checklist, I’m just going to post a couple more jokes. Many of our last round of jokes featured the theme of “walking into a bar.” (Thank you for all those contributions, folks.) Here I give the other perennial favorite, the lightbulb joke.

These two lightbulb jokes are my favorites, and I’ll give you a bonus story. I first heard them while on a boat going down the Amazon, sitting around on hammocks. On Thanksgiving day, no less. That would have been in 1991. There were other jokes, and plenty of other tales from that trip, but here are two jokes that I can share quickly. (And yes, I realize that they are pretty similar.):

    Q: How many mice does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
    A: Two, but they have to be pretty small mice.

    Q: How many flies does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
    A: Two, but how do you get them in there?

Please share your lightbulb jokes with me. Pretty please?

    You can unscrew the lightbulb.

  3. I hear you on burn out. Not sure why it hit me *now* but it has. I think it is because of the Big A$$ Clusterf@ck weekend on my horizon and a cold.


    Love the levity. That mice in a lightbulb joke cracked me up.

    I still got nothing, so I had to go look.

    * How do you catch a red elephant?
    * With a red elephant trap.

    And because I am so cynical and have a thing against raccoons these days LOL:

    The local police, FBI, and CIA are all trying to prove that they are the best at apprehending criminals. The President decides to give them a test. He releases a rabbit into a forest and has each of them try to catch it.

    The CIA goes in: They place animal informants throughout the forest. They question all plant and mineral witnesses. After three months of extensive investigations they conclude that rabbits do not exist.

    Then the FBI goes in: After two weeks with no leads they burn the forest, killing everything in it including the rabbit, and they make no apologies. The rabbit had it coming.

    Then the local police go in: They come out two hours later with a badly beaten raccoon. The raccoon is yelling: ” Okay! Okay! I’m a rabbit! I’m a rabbit!”

  4. Linda-
    Thanks for dropping by, and leaving the lovely lightbulb linkage. What a wealth of lightbulb jokes are in the comments, too!

    Those are three great ones! Such a bounty. Thanks!

    Cool. I’ve heard a version of the “men” one with various performing artists, I think.

    I think I may be lacking in knowledge of stagehands. But I don’t have a problem with that.

    Big A$$ Clusterf@ck ? Is that the theme of your daughters’ party? I’m imagining balloons and other party favors…
    And I enjoyed your cynical joke. Thanks for sharing it.

    That’s a good one. (Thanks for dropping by, too. That’s an interesting site you’ve started, by the way.)

    Cheers to you, too!

    One, but the guitar player has to show him how to do it.

  6. How many Microsoft employees does it take to screw in a light bulb?
