This has an eerie ring to it. :-lmao
Not my work, simply seen elsewhere. :)



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.

Three to correct spelling/grammar errors.

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 forum 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 forum
Saying that we all use light bulbs
And therefore the posts are relevant
To this forum.

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 forum which makes light bulbs
Relevant to this forum.

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 forum 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 forum lurker to respond to
The original post 6 months from now
With something unrelated and start it
All over again.

I think T_G was latching on to the humour of the original post. Don't think he was being pedantic. :D

You're right of course Yorks.

Couldn't resist a dig at a certain forum - certain members there are all too ready to pick up on any little typos and grammatical mistakes.
