Scared voice in the background: "Change? Change? Did somebody mention "Change""?!

Civil servants? Do you know why the federal buildings in Ottawa have yellow lines painted in the hallways and stairwells? So that those who are leaving early don't bump into those that are coming in late.

All these posts but not this old PC joke. In Alberta I first heard it while taking coffee in a Hutterite Colony, largely surrounded by farms owned by descendants of Ukrainian immigrants.

How many Ukrainians does it take to change a lightbulb?
Fifty-one. One to hold the bulb and fifty to turn the house around. The joke was told about Hutterites in the Ukrainian households.

This worked as a Blonde joke or hillbilly joke or mechanic joke or civil servant joke or- pick your category. But I'm sure everyone has heard it by now.

And one to explain what in heaven's name the connection between light bulbs and arses can possibly be,
one to ask who invented light-bulb jokes, when, where, why, and whether?
and one to realise that we might not hAve enough catters to do all the above.
and one to ask if the bulbs fall out because of a faulty thread, or, as it's known in the trade, a thread-drift.

Auto.

500 contributers (who can spell colour) to complain about those stupid screw-base bulbs which leave their screws in the fitment.
1000 contributers (who think it should be spelled color) to defend them because Edison invented them. "And anyway, sometimes bayonet-fittings do, too."
And Peace, who is selling tickets to his show where he fires aerosols at candles, and burns the theatre down.

We all know that the lightbulb was really invented in Canada but the Americans stole it and gave the credit to Edison. Since then, the accumulated debt plus interest from that one stolen bulb is over 6 billion dollars U.S. The U.S. owes us bigtime!

If you add up all the energy and resources consumed in the manufacture of a light bulb, from the high-temperature processes of refining metal ores and making glass on down through all rest, then add the cost of electricity and the ecological damage caused by producing it, how can any morally concious person justify the use of lightbulbs when candles are available as an alternative?

i jut remembered my father had several large glass globes
from light bulbs that he would empty out, open up and
fill with water then suspend in the sun..they would
invert the image of the view that you could see
through them. He also had a box where he
kept bulbs batteries fuses, etc. which
he labelled "light bulbs, to replace
dark bulbs" He really liked to play
with words....nice to remember
him. He also had some of
those old bulbs filled
with confetti for
decoration.

Just had a quick look in some ref.bks. re inventor. (Oh, goodness, someone didn't did they?

Given that there is a slight oversimplification in the realm of invention (many contribut something), a couple including a chronology by the US journalist James Trager award the palm to Sir Joseph Swan. He demonstrated the first 5th Feb 1877, a few monthe before Edison came up with his variant. Edison patented first, which is often the reason for thwe "first" attribution in the world of invention.
