    hey, don't worry. Still a good one. By the way, I have a great joke:

    4 guys walk into a bar, the 5th one ducked.

  6. I haven't heard that one before...but wasn't the original "A guy walks into a bar, what does he say?" "ouch"

    Your list forgot to mention the people who point out that the lightbulb's already been changed a million times...;)
  8. i say none. Due to the fact that light does not exist on the internet...
  9. 20 to say "I remember when we did a lightbulb change a few years ago and this happened....."


  10. Light bulbs, light bulbs!

    Everyone's always talking about light bulbs!

    What about tulip bulbs? :confused:

    What, do you guys hate flowers?

    Do you guys have something against The Netherlands?



    Two existentialists walk into a bar - or did they? :p

    I use Hilk Light bulbs. They're superior and cost $240, but they're superior.
