    7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs

    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 light bulb 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

    1 to bring politics into the discussion by adding that John Howard isn't the brightest bulb.

    4 more to get into personal attacks over their political views.

    1 moderator to lock the light bulb thread.

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

    :LOL: This sounds familiar :D
  2. You forgot that you also need 1 moderator to post a link to the calendar section as the changing of the light bulb clearly constitutes an event.
  3. You also forgot the 1 to make a really bad pun - like "this is an enlightening discussion"
  4. And at least 5 to complain about how the car driver cut them off so that he could change the light bulb first.
  5. And one to up the pedantry quotient by pointing out that the correct 'strine' term is light GLOBE.........
  6. And another to enquire about which globe it was and did they see this before hand.
  7. And 1 inviting the poster to come along to Friday night coffee if they want to discuss light bulbs some more! :LOL:
  8. And one to say that everyone else was wrong and they are actually called light GLOBES!!
  9. I think that you will find that the correct term is lamp.
  10. And 753 to say that you must wear full face helmet while changing it!!!
  11. And it's been done before here by me,

    and again here

    Still funny though.....................

    And unlike someone else, at least you're not repeating the same joke you posted yourself, I'm not saying who but you know who you are :p
  12. lol. Apparently it takes at least 3 motorcyclists to change the lightbulb (with subsequent fall out of other motorcyclists complaining, ranting, etc.) before all motorcyclists realise that the lightbulb has been changed. :)
  13. Then there's the noob who still wants to change a tube light that he doesn't yet own.

    Another dozen who tell him that the tube light he wants to change is too powerful for him and should start off with changing torch light bulbs.
  14. Now THAT is funny...

    Oh, and also 51 motorcyclists to tell him that the shouldn't even CONSIDER changing the light bulb until he has first purchased the right protective gear.
  15. And 1 person to sit on the sidelines and say "Popcorn"
    1 Triumph owner to say how much better Triumph light globes are than everyone else's
    1 person to say that we all ought to protest about the laxness of the legal system in prosecuting car owners who don't change their own light bulbs
    At least one person to come on, not having read the whole thread, and derail it on the basis of the last post only....
    And one self-appointed expert who can take everyone post apart, phrase by phrase, and point out how everyone else is wrong and he or she alone is right. (meanwhile it gets dark because NO-ONE has actually changed the afore-said-mentioned light globe!)
  16. Triumph, says it all really.
  17. Just a hint of triumphalism there, scooter?
  18. Chocolate anyone?
  19. ANd one to biatch and moan about only one globe working :p
  20. hey it was a funny joke and it works. :( and im not the only one to repost a joke they have posted in the past.
