One of the short, themed works I consider a specialty of mine is the lightbulb joke. I've been known to craft them for special occasions, and have been told my work has been printed out and posted up on a wall. Let's see, I need a theme... I know! Given the redeath of my Xbox 360 - and the license transfer my brother is (was?) waiting for - here's one:
Q: How many Xbox technicians does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: It would take only one, but he's red-green colorblind. (Instead, it takes three: one to promise to repair the old bulb, one to replace it anyway, and one you'll have to complain to about how the replacement bulb doesn't light when the lamp isn't connected to the Internet.)
Not my best - a bit too abrupt at the end - but it isn't bad for something I just came up with without prior planning. For the curious, here are my three favorite lightbulb jokes (not my creations):
Q: How many surrealists does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: Two - one to hold the giraffe, the other to fill the bathtub with brightly colored bicycles.
Q: How many psychedelics users does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: Green, because ice cream has no bones.
And my absolute favorite of all time:
Q: How many Zen Masters does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: Two - one to change the bulb, and one to not change the bulb.
At any rate, I only posted any of that to give you a bit of background on why I think the current Dinosaur Comics, a strip which I typically don't care much for, is one of the most genius comics I've seen in ages. - ZM
