How many Ted Barlows does it take...

Man, it's hard to pick a favorite joke among Barlow's Bulb-O-Rama, but I think I lean towards this one. I must say, despite the excellent efforts of Ted and Hesiod, there's still room for more joking at Instapundit's expense:

Q. How many Instapundits does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A. Look, I'm not saying it's necessarily wrong to oppose the President's position on preemptive light-bulb removal. It's possible that what's best for the bulb is what's best for America. I am saying that there are plenty of misguided people who don't seem to realize that their movement is the key to the survival of a nasty and outmoded form of lighting. It's harsh, but it's unarguably true that those who oppose halogens are objectively pro-fluorescence.

Yeah, I know - don't give up the day job. Here's something we know you'll like: the canonical list of light bulb jokes for Texas universities. This one, naturally, is my favorite:

Q. How many Rice students does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A. One to screw it in and the rest of the student body to relieve the stress of screwing it in by running naked through campus.

Thank you and good night.

Light bulb joke, Big 10 style:

Q: How many Michigan alums does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A: Just one. And boy does that make them feel smarter than the rest of us.

Lightbulb joke, theatre geek style:

Q: How many lighting designers does it take to change a lightbulb?

A: First, it's a called a "lamp", and second, that's not funny.

A couple of comments got lost in this thread (see above). Sorry about that.
