Skip to comments.How many Frepers does it take to screw in a light bulb? (Friday Humor)
Posted on 08/14/2009 7:19:07 AM PDT by Borges
1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed
4 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently
7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs
5 to flame the spell checkers
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"
5 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct
6 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what supermarkets are offering discounts on brands of light bulbs, and what customer service they expect in a lightbulb shop
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
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?"
1 lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.
Aaargh I spelled Freepers wrong. Can you help out?
And one old-timer to say, GOOD JOB!
Don’t forget one noobie to claim to be a conservative and state a ridiculously extreme position in hopes of making free republic look bad.
what about the 10 to call the light bulb changer a RINO commie pig they would never vote for!
And don’t get me started about Compact Flourescent Lamps!
The number of FReepers needed depends on whether they are turning the bulb in the same direction.
(And of course whether it’s a right or left handed bulb.)
Light bulbs are a communist plot!
2- 1 to argue that we were intelligently designed to change light bulbs, and one to argue that all non-lightbulb changers have been eliminated by natural selection.
And 12 to bookmark to read later.
And one more noobie who claims to be very concerned about how bad we are making the entire coservative movement look because we are wasting our time talking about changing light bulbs.
...and the whole gang to post in before the ZOT...
And, a British poster to point out that an American 120v light bulb would immediately burn out in one of their 220v fixtures.
One to start a lightbulb “ping” list so that all future postings about this lightbulb get met with the same bashing.
Don’t forget those who would blame the fact that light bulbs burn out on illegal immigrants.
As long as they are not politically correct lightbulbs, light bulbs, or lamps.
Somebody post a pic of CZJ. She lights up a room as well.
And seven to blame Obama personally for having the census workers point out the fact that the bulb was burned out and write it down.
How about - 4 or 5 who fail to see that this is a humorous satire and will begin a serious spirited debate about screwing in light bulbs.
And at least one communist poster to point out THEIR bulbs are BIGGER and MORE ADVANCED than American light bulbs.
Congress said so.
And another to post the breathless story from WND how said illegal immigrants are stealing good light bulbs from public features, replacing them with burned out light bulbs, then selling the good light bulbs under the table in California which has recently mandated CFLs for everybody.
One to post “TTIUWP”
Another to rant about LEDs being better than either incandescent or fluorescent ‘lamps’.
And of course one to complain about changing the [sacrosanct] wording of the title because OTHERWISE they would have found it had all been posted before.
Coated with phosphorus, phosphorous, or phosphor?
A Freeper would makes the designs, figure out a way to make them cheaper so all American can enjoy modern society with light bulbs, modern conveniences, figure out a way to make it more productive to provide more jobs, then go on and make designs to build nuclear energy more cheaper, oil production more cheaper and find more oil...
CAN'T YOU USE THE SEARCH FUNCTION?!?!?!??!
I've always wanted to do that... NOT!!
it’s a trick question.....light bulbs have been banned because they are destroying the planet....anyone who responds will be reported to email@example.com
Two to post a link to an article from an engineering publication showing that the LED does not work efficiently at normal light bulb intensities.
And, 6 to point out how it’s the gov’t’s fault that light bulbs have to be changed in the first place, and if gov’t would get it’s nose out of the light bulb business and return to a gold standard, private enterprise would have long ago made the perfect light bulb.
And, 1 parsifal to jump on the anarcho-capitalists
Another 6 freepers to call me names
and 1 or 2 trolls to egg it all on
2 or 3 birthers to complain that while the lights were out, BO quickly flashed a copy of his long form BC, but its no fair because the lights were out and now he’s back to hiding it.
4 Sarah Palin fans to point out that only SP has any experience in the energy field
3 freepers who were afraid the blown light bulb was DU pulling a fast one
1 or 2 freepers to point out that the outage was a prelude to the Rapture
4 Ayn Rand devotees to query whether the lights going out was because heroic capitalists just left for Galt’s Gulch; and
2 or 3 freepers to wonder when a wealthy person was going to come along and trickle down some light bulbs on us.
parsy, the realistic
Q. How many radical lesbian feminists does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A. That’s not funny.
To proclaim that Democrats, Liberals, MSM are a bunch of Dem Watts ( i.e. Dimwits )...
In the headline, no less.
Already posted in 2000
One to complain the link is invalid.
Dead link so it doesn’t count!
4 to post the light bulb wasn’t born that way and can change with 2 stating they grew up with 1 or 2 light bulbs and he/she was obviously born that way.
Also, there’s the Freeper who has to post a Helen Thomas picture, to sour as many meals as possible.
