How Many Forum Members Does it Take to Change a Lightbulb?

Postby abqwriter » Fri Feb 10, 2006 7:06 am

I read this and thought I'd share it here.  It's quite witty.  Hope it makes you laugh!

How many forum members does it take to change a lightbulb?

One to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been
changed.

Fourteen to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how
the light bulb could have been changed differently.

Seven to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs.

Seven more to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing
light bulbs.

Five to flame the spell checkers.

Three to correct spelling/grammar flames.

Six to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ...

Another six to condemn those six as stupid.

Fifteen to claim experience in the lighting industry and give the
correct spelling.

Nineteen to post that this group is not about light bulbs and to please
take this discussion to a lightbulb (or light bulb) forum.

Eleven to defend the posting to the group saying that we all use light
bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this group.

Thirty six 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.

Seven to post URLs where one can see examples of different light bulbs.

Four to post that the URLs were posted incorrectly and then post the
corrected URL.

Three to post about links they found from the URLs that are relevant to
this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group.

Thirteen to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety
including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too"

Five to post to the group that they will no longer post because they
cannot handle the light bulb controversy.

Four to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

Thirteen to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting
questions about light bulbs."

Three to tell a funny story about their cat and a light bulb.

AND

One group lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now with
something unrelated they found at snopes.com and start it all over again!

That's great!

This forum is nothin'...I was part of a Mommy tip-sharing forum where the women were positively venomous. I visted there recently and saw that now they have a buttom attached to each entry that you can click on to report misconduct by posters. Crazy!

Hell hath no fury like mommies who disagree with other mommies' parenting skills. :)

The only three things I think are missing are 1) several replies that say nothing but "LOL" or, maybe, "ROFL," 2) a string of replies that contain only winking, embarassed, laughing, or retching animated smiley faces, and 3) one reply that discusses casaba melons and never mentions light bulbs.

But otherwise that is pretty darned funny and I might just copy it and paste it in at another forum I go to sometimes. Without attribution, of course.

Too funny! This is my first forum experience and I'm finding it to be just that way!
