I thought everyone could use a good larf today, so here goes!!

I get daily emails from Rex Barker's www.jokeoftheday.com. Here's a sampling of today's gems:

How many online forum group members does it take to change a lightbulb?

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.

27 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs.

6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb"...another 6 to condemn those 6 as anal-retentive

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.

109 to post that this group is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb group

306 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.

27 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs.

33 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too".

12 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?"

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

I love it!  Are you perhaps poking a little gentle fun at us ? Surely not....... Cheesy

Of course not!!  Wink

The part of his website I like best is the picture of the day -- it's very humorous and often no caption is needed, esp. when he uses puppies and kittens! You'd like it.

How are you, Binks? Must be getting late down under.

I shall have to look it up.....sounds good. Yes, it's almost 11pm.....just watching the latest stage of the Tour de France. COME ON CADEL EVANS !!!!!!!! He's the only Aussie left in contention now, and just might make the top 3. I do think they could hold these events at a reasonable hour. Same with Wimbledon....no thought for us poor Antipodeans.  Angry

You guys just don't get no respect, to quote the late, very funny, Rodney Dangerfield!

I can see that we need to recruit a LOT more forummates if we decide to change a lightbulb in the future!

I'm not really sure, and I imagine your list should have some 6-10 additional individuals to debate such a question.  Cheesy

We'd have to start talking about whether a virtual lightbulb even exists!!  Demon
