Lightbulb Lightbulb Jokes for [email protected]

[email protected], I know you have an interest in mathematics and logic so I thought you might enjoy these lightbulb jokes:

Q: How many existentialists does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: Two: One to screw it in and one to observe how the light bulb itself symbolizes a single incandescent beacon of subjective reality in a netherworld of endless absurdity reaching out toward a maudlin cosmos of nothingness.

Q: How many mathematicians does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: If x mathematicians can change a light bulb and if one more simply watches them do it, then x+1 mathematicians will have changed the light bulb. Therefore, based on this hypothesis, we may infer that for all n in the positive integers, n mathematicians can change a light bulb.

Q: How many Microsoft executives does it take to change a light bulb?
A: We can see no need for uninstallation and have therefore made no provision for light bulbs to be removed.

None — it's a hardware problem.

How many Paras does it take to change a lightbulb?

Three. One to do the job and two to tell him how good he is.

How many Marines does it take to changes a light bulb?

None. Marines are not frightened of the dark.

National notes:

"change a light bulb" because in UK we use bayonet cap lamps.

Q: How many Classical Economists does it take to change a light bulb?

A: None. They believe it would be better if the bulb changed itself instead of having exogenous market forces, i.e., government intervention, address the problem of no illumination.

A Dominican, a Franciscan, and a Jesuit were visiting a shrine. Suddenly the lights went out. The Dominican stood up and said, "Let us consider the nature of light and of darkness, and their meaning."

The Franciscan began to sing a hymn in honor of our Little Sister Darkness.

The Jesuit went out and replaced the fuse.
