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.

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.

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.)

You Forgot:

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, 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.

Only 10?

Don’t forget those who would blame the fact that light bulbs burn out on illegal immigrants.

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 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.

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...

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
