Writer Humor

I have a new favorite joke, sent to me by Anne Lovett, a talented chick from my writer's group.

So how many writers does it take to change a lightbulb?

Ten.
One to change the light bulb.
Four to say that they'd already had the idea for changing a light bulb, but they didn't want to show anyone what they were doing until they'd polished their light-bulb-changing.
Two to point out that someone else had already changed a light bulb, so changing another one was unoriginal and thus not worthwhile.
Three to call light bulbs a new technology that was going to be catastrophic for traditional candlelight-driven writers.
And one to figure out that writers are lousy at math.

Ha! I think I'll steal it and substitute professors for the writers.

Hmmm...is it Mara's birthday?

Happy Birthday to Mara, and thanks for the giggle. I have seen so many of the "lightbulb" jokes and they all make me laugh.

(Have you seen the one about the different religions? Hilarious. I'll look.)
