"how many palinites...."

An ever increasing number as they must investigate all the aspects of light bulb insertion in every culture all over the world.

How many teenagers does it take to change a l;ightbulb?

None coz they don't do anything helpful, the just give you gobfuls of lip and eat all the food and never pick up anything and moan coz you're the world's worst parent apparently, coz you won't take the code off the phone and allow them to make 10 thousand phone calls to all their friend's mobiles and coz you didn't have fresh strawberries to make them and their friends pancakes on demand, despite the fact that you have been up all night with a baby and when you decide to not respond to their endless demands you are accused of being deaf!!!

Sorry, havin' a bad day! What was the question again?

How many council workers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Four - one to hold the bulb and three to turn the chair he is standing on.

kazzzz--you have teenagers AND a baby? You have my sympathy as well. I have one kid who's borderline hyperactive as well as being a genius. She's 11 now, but when she was a baby and toddler, I thought I'd go mad. That's why she's an only child.

How many new mothers does it take to screw in a light bulb?

One, but it's going to have to wait until she feeds the baby, changes its diaper, wipes the spitup off the floor and her sleeve, changes her shirt, answers the phone......etc., etc.

Yes, I do, I have a 6 week old baby and a 15 yr old and an 18 yr old (well she's 18 in about 5 weeks)..aren't I mad?
My friend rang yesterday and I couldn't talk coz the baby was crying, the 15 yr old was arguing, the music was blaring and the pancakes were burning..bah...I have no time for dodgy lightbulbs at ALL!

How many Cheese Shop owners does it take to change a lightbulb?

"Do you have a chair I could stand on?"
"A ladder?"
"A stool?"
"A table?"
"Oh, erm, no."
"A box?"
"I'll have a look. Oh, no. The cat's sleeping in it."
"A stepladder? A bench? A bookcase? A coffee table? A lazy susan? A linen box?"
"A sofa?"
"Do you have any kind of object that could be standable on?"
"I'm going to ask that again, and if you don't tell the truth, I'll blow your head off. Now, do you have anything that could assist me in changing a lightbulb?"
