Yesterday was E-Day, apparently.

It’s nothing to do with chemical stimulants, European integration, electronic communications, islands in Orkney or the Yorkshire dialect (though no doubt someone has conceived days for all of those things).

Rather, E-Day is about saving energy. Quite why we’re only encouraged to do it one day a year is beyond me.

But anyway. Switching lights off seems to be one of the main themes of the day, and so I thought it would be appropriate to observe E-Day (albeit a day late) with a round of your best lightbulb jokes.

For starters…

How many Church of Scotland Elders does it take to change a lightbulb?

How many pedants does it take to change a lightbulb?
None, surely you replace it.

How many Freudian analysts dos it take to change a lightbulb?
Two – one to screw in the lightbulb and the other to hold the peni… I mean ladder.

How many dyslexics does it take to change a lightblub?

How many folk singers does it take to change a lightbulb?
Twenty – one to change the lightbulb and the others to sit in a circle and sing a song about how good the old one was.

I’m sure there’s more.

  1. How many nuns does it take to change a lightbulb?
    Just the one, if she has a replacement handy, is able to reach and also understands the paradigm of how a lightbulb is changed. It might be useful if another person (who may or may not be another nun) can hold the ladder steady, if such an item is required for the conveyancing of erstwhile nun to a location which is comfortably within reach of the bulb which requires replacing.

    Today is national “no stereotypes” day.

  2. how many psychologists does it take to change a lightbulb?

    just one, but it’s very expensive, takes many months and will only happen when the lightbulb really WANTS to change.

  3. Don’t use so much energy day was actually a bit of a flop… a nation we actually used 0.1% more energy during that 24 hour period than the average for this time of year. We’re all doomed.
