The JIS Lightbulb Joke Page

Q: How many rec.jugglers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Search the JIS on "Lightbulb," newbie. (Dan McDonald)

Lightbulb jokes crop on rec.juggling once or twice a year. By request, this page contains all the lightbulb jokes about juggling that I know of.

In an ideal world, I'd credit each joke with its original author. Alas, a search of the JIS reveals actually there are no original lightbulb jokes -- they all sprung from the ground fully formed on the otherwise quiet afternoon when T. A. Edison's assistant walked into his employer's lab and saw three small round-ish objects lying on the table. (Okay, okay -- feel free to search the JIS yourself for credits.)

How many jugglers does it take to change a light bulb?

How many beginning jugglers...?

How many MM clones does it take to change a light bulb?

There is also a large collection of Albert Lucas jokes. In the interests of good taste, we'll omit all but one:

How many Albert Lucas' does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

There was apparently an article in an issue of Two Ply Press some years back that had a big collection of Lucas jokes.

(Would you believe someone on the net actually maintains a huge, searchable database of lightbulb jokes? And that there's a newsgroup -- -- devoted to the subject? Some people have too much free time...)
