    Some time ago I was in a metro train with the bass and a guy (with girlfriend; obviously tourists) addressed me: "you know, I too play the double bass". I answered smiling: "uh, I am really sorry for you."
    I then asked asked him what his favorite bass joke was, and he, after a moment of thinking hard, answererd:

    "How many bassists you need to change a light bulp?"
    "Not one, the pianist does it with his left hand."

    Traveling with a double bass is like walking a dog...

    My favourite light bulb joke:

    How many Freudians does it take to change a light bulb?
    2. One to change the bulb and the other to hold the peni-- I mean, ladder.

    My favourite musicians joke:

    How many guitar players does it take to cover Stevie Ray Vaughan?
    All of them, apparently.

    I don't think I have a favourite bass player joke that can't be swapped out with any other type of musician. I like his.

    How many bass payers does it take to change a light bulb?

    All of them. Guitarists can't be bothered with that sort of thing.
