So cheesy you might slip in it

How many banjo players does it take to screw in a light bulb? Five; one to screw it in and four to:

  1. complain that it's electric.
  2. lament about how much they miss the old one.
  3. complain that Earl wouldn't have done it thata-way.
  4. argue about what year it was made.
  5. argue about how much it costs.
  6. ask what tuning she's using.
  7. stand around and watch.
  8. 10: one to do it & the other 9 to stand around & say, "I could have done it better."
  9. none: but hum a few bars and I'll fake it.

How many bass players does it take to screw in a light bulb?

  1. All of them are too laid back to bother to change it.
  2. Six: One to change it and five to keep the banjo players from hogging the light.

How many second violinists does it take to screw in a light bulb?

  1.   They can't get that high.


  --The Canonical List of Banjo Jokes


I say, what musician needs to replace a light bulb anyway? We can play in the dark. Our tuners have LED lights on them.

Instead we can reminisce on old times, when there were no light bulbs and we had to practice by day. I'm sure we'd all benefit psychosomatically from this pragmatic contemplation.

Indeed, dearest Freischutz.

But, I must say, as a second violinist, I quite disagree. But then I improvise, so...... :D

And, indeed, I think we might. But it is the only truly prolix and voluble who might so benefit from such an exercise, for it is only the loquacious that would be able to express in the most saccharide of ways the absolute extreme hippopotomonstrosesquipedalian elements of it, all while the less enlightened are venting all sorts of tomfoolery about that which only the most hippopotomonstrosesquipedalian, voluble, prolix, and loquacious can comprehend :) Quite the way to end a comment is it not??? ; )
