The job-oriented lightbulb

How many applicants does it take to change a light bulb?
  • Only one, but 200 applied for the job.
  • Thirteen. One to change the bulb and a dozen others to make sure that everyone has an equal opportunity to apply for the job.

How many unionised workers does it take to change a light bulb?
  • None. They assign the task to a non-unionised temporary.
  • Just one, but he gets promoted two times before he finally finishes screwing it up.
  • Just one, but once he gets tenure, he doesn't change anymore.
  • "Eighteen, you got a problem with that?"
  • "Fifty." "Fifty?" "Yeah, fifty; it is in the contract."
  • Fourteen. One to give the bulb to the screw-inner. One to screw in the bulb. One to hold him on the stepladder. Four to hold the stepladder steady. One to flick the switch to test the bulb. One to make sure that the other bulbs in the room will need fixing. One to supervise. Two to take a coffee break, one to eat lunch, and one to nap.

How many personnel managers does it take to change a light bulb?
  • Three. One to take out the old bulb, one to screw in the new bulb, and one to relocate the old bulb.

How many bureaucrats does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
  • Any number, but they always screw it up.
