Blatantly Political Light Bulb Joke


How many members of the Obama Administration does it take to change a light bulb?

Answer: Twenty two. (So far.)

  • One to observe that a greener light bulb wouldn't have burned out in the first place
  • One to appoint a Light Bulb Advisory Board
  • Seven to sit on the Light Bulb Advisory Board that doesn't meet because, well, it's dark
  • One to complain about the greed of the light bulb manufacturers for making a bulb that can burn out
  • One to hold a press conference announcing that he will have a comprehensive plan to replace the bulb at some future date
  • Nine to break nine more light bulbs
  • One to promise to replace five bulbs in the next eight years, thereby cutting our lighting deficit in half
  • One to remind us that he inherited this burned out light bulb

    Interestingly, no one has actually replaced the silly bulb in all that...

    Ok, now back to bed.
