does it take to change a light bulb?

Gary: can we use multi-colored fur bulbs?

Brian: no care, listening to Rockies.

Jon: Light bulbs are just a filament of your imagination.

Mary: can we use bulbs with a curly-que that look like a DQ ice cream cone?

Russell: I'll make rain-bird sprinkler noises while someone unscrews the bulb.

Randall T: YOU'RE IN MY WAY!!

Duncan: I will get the ladder.

Greg: Can we disassemble the light socket?

Sue: NO, YOU'RE IN MY WAY!!

Barb: YOU'RE IN MY WAY!!

Phil: I am "fireman Phil". I'll extinguish the old bulb. Oh, did I get some fire retardant on your engine block?

Martha: YOU"RE IN MY WAY!!

Richard: I thought I saw an eye doctor on an Alaskan island, but it turned out to be an optical Aleutian. Hey, it was a shot in the dark.

It's my joke and my last name and we are very plural. If I want to tell it with apostrophes in it that is what I shall do. If you don't like it you can go kick your sword again.

Gunnar- Im good friends with Sue, and she doesnt get this either so its no "inside joke". However, I do know that she would say " No, get the hell out of my way and let me do this! In the process of changing the light bulb I can hear her muttering , That stupid Obama lovin older brother sure is an embarrassment to his conservative roots.

Perhaps that is that key...Richards epiphone about conservative vs liberal seems to have the family in an uproar...Perhaps this old adage will help them remember..."I might not agree with what you say, but I will defend with my life your right to say it"...just a suggestion on my part nothing more and really none of my business...

And here I mistakenly thought we lived in a country that valued freedom of thought, freedom of speech, and freedom of expression. Or is that only when it's convenient and in lockstep with one's friends and family? Since when is a person "stupid and an embarrassment" because they have a differing viewpoint?

2 things - one, I'm guessing from what Mary said that she's still with the DQ Corporation? I've bumped into her a couple times several years ago and she was still with them then - career must be going pretty well for her, then.

Two, are you sure Barb wouldn't say: "PRIVATE! On the ladder and change that bulb immediately!"???

Well, you know her better than I do.

It's clearly Richard's joke. I don't get it either.

Shu- I've not been at DQ for five years...

And Wendy, I'd like to suggest a place you can put that sword that Richard always wants you to kick.

But were raisins involved? And was there ketchup?

Sort of... just "raisin" a person to a height where they can "ketchup" to the burned out light bulb.

Edited to keep Wendy happy.

I believe this thread is an excellent example on why contraception has become such an important issue in this year's election.
