Subject: BS: Forum members changing a light bulb
From: Folkiedave
Date: 20 Jan 06 - 02:32 PM

How many forum members does it take to change a light bulb?
Ironic if this is not the first time of posting!!

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" ... another 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 search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"
1 to hijack the thread and ask how to change the horn
1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

Like most posters, I didn't bother to read all of the first post (and certainly NOT the old thread), especially due to the lack of paragraph breaks.

Anyway,in case it doesn't mention, add a few Catters to pray about it and then a few more to pray for the rest of it. :~)

And a few more to protest prayer as a plot.

Well Old Guy you know the controversy over the fact that the Light Bulb manufacturing Company just started building a factory in Texas; and that GWB and family own the najority of shares in it. Right now Ted Kennedy is telling the media that they make sub standard light bulbs and make a huge profit on replacements. They also use more power than regular bilbs, and thats to support the oil companies. All we need now is to dig up the dirt on the predominantly Mormon/Evangelical Christian managment hiring practises and we should get a good thread going here...

Yours, Aye. Dave

And one to ask.

One to say stop blaming Blair for the light bulb situation.
One to say the answer is 42.
"    "   " stop blaming Bush for the light bulb    "
"   " "   "    "    Al-Qaida " "   "    "       "
"    "   " it's all toooooooooo addictive.
"    "   "   "Get a life !!"
"    "   "   "Your missing the point."




AND surely one to say," I'm sure someone wrote a song about light-bulb changing - it's just that I can't remember the words
or the tune
or if I just dreamt it."

and maybe someone to say,"That's lovely. I've been inspired to write that song."   

Perhaps ther real question is, how many Mudcatters has it taken to change a light-bulb

ALL OTHER THINGS BEING EQUAL
I'm sorry for the outburst.

A bunch of Mudcatters worked at the same factory. One of them, Giok, was a little soft in the head. One afternoon the foreman walked through, looked up at the rafters and noticed Giok was up there with his knees hooked over a beam, hanging upside-down.

"What in tarnation do you think you're doing up there?" exclaimed the foreman. "Get down from there right now or you're fired!"

"I'm a lightbulb," asserted Giok.

"Lightbulb my *ss," shouted the foreman, "You've got 1 minute to get back down here and get to work."

Giok just kept hanging there, looking down at the man.

The foreman looked at his watch and counted down the seconds to one minute. "That's it." He said. "Get down from there, get your things and get out. You are out of a job as of now."

Giok climbed down from the rafters and headed for his locker. Much to the forman's surprise, all the other Mudcatters stopped what they were doing, and followed Giok out.

"Wait! Stop! Where do the rest of you think you're going. Get back to machines and quit wasting production time."

The 'Catters just kept walking as the foreman fumed and fussed. "I don't understand why the rest of you are walking out. You can see he wasn't doing his job!"

As the Mudcat crew walked out the door, one of them turned to the foreman and said "What did you think would happen? Surely you didn't expect us all to keep working in the dark!"

(ok, ok...I'll leave.....Janie)

Light a candle. When the mosquito comes near, take a can of Raid and spray the little b###ard. When it falls to the floor, squish it with your foot. Then, using the ball end of a metalwork hammer, swat it a few more times until it blends into the carpet. Then blow the candle out.

And then the mosquito regains consciousness a few hours later while you are asleep, limps over to your bed, crawls up onto it, then onto you. Since it can't fly anymore, there is no warning high-pitched whine to alert you of its presence. It inserts its siphon into your jugular vein, drains you until you lay there dried out and wrinkled like a raisin as it limps off, sloshing and gurgle (and snickering) over the horizon.

Damned things are hard to kill!
