How many ______s does it take to change a light bulb?

Ok, we have the math and science jokes, how about a more familiar classic? I know you've all heard at least one. Let's hear them!

I'll start:

How many physciatrists does it take to change a lightbulb?

One, but it has to want to change.


How many surrealists does it take to change a lightbulb?

A fish.


How many drummers does it take to change a lightbulb?

14, one to change the bulb, and 13 to discuss how Neil Peart could have done it better.

Ok, that should get the ball rolling. Bonus points to whoever comes up with the best "How many Mercedes owners" joke.

HI I'm a newbie to the mercedes club.

How many mb owners does it take to change a light bulb?

Answer,
1. If question is posted in the tech area, you will get five answers.

2. If posted in the Diesel section, you will get fifteen answers from 617 owners and twelve advocating the opposite idea from 603 owners. The 616 owners will know the right answer but will be too slow to help.

3. If posted in the vintage section you will only get one answer from Roger Dalton but it will be correct. If a v8 you will get one answer from Tomguy but it will be correct too.

4. If posted in the Open Discussion you will get a lot of answers but they will be about politics, sex and greed.

5. If posted in the parts section you will get a lot of offers of parts to solve the problem but if they are the right one they will be on the opposite coast and the shipping will be prohibitive.

Good one, Tom. I want to know who the hell Neil Peart is.

No, not a newbie, just an infrequent poster.

I guess I should have specified that I was hoping to hear plenty of non-MBZ ones as well. I'm sure we've all heard the standard auto-related message board ones, I was thinking of ones not particularly related to the forum. But the ones you posted are still funny. I am confused though about the 616 owners, did you mean both of them, or just the one? (In our area 616s are rare, not sure if that's true everywhere...)

Q. How many Socialist Workers Party members does it take to change
a lightbulb.
A. Four. One to change the bulb, one to write about it for "the
paper", one to sell you "the paper" and another to follow you home and
ask why you weren't at the bulb changing, if you plan to make the next
one and if you were still as committed.

Yeah, you kinda have to know some drummers for that one. He's the drummer for Rush, and seemingly recognized as one of the world's best drummers. But I (like most non-musicians) am not really a big Rush fan so...

No put down intended...just trying to get into the spirit of it. The newbie was not intended to mean you.

How many MB engineers does it take to change a light bulb?

A lot. Also will take years of R&D, and it'll cost a lot when it's all done.

Overall, most likely the best rock drummer ever.

His website: http://www.neilpeart.net/

Now watch this (a must view) a Buddy Rich tribute: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bIchqJoxFQ

And then him in concert recently, with full kit (he's 52 years old), esp. at 2:30 on : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pesdq5Ce5KE
