I don’t believe I’ve ever posted a joke received via e-mail. I figure most people have already read them and it’s just not my thing.
However, I’ve made an exception with this particular joke because:
A) It was sent to me by one of my sons with the accompanying comment:
“I thought this was funny and I believe I’m one of the morons in the story.”
B) It rings true in this household of one female and three males.
And do forgive me because it contains an element of man-bashing. Granted, the word male is never mentioned but, hey, if my son recognizes himself in this tale, I think that speaks volumes.
How many women does it take to change a light bulb?
One! ONLY ONE!!!! And do you know WHY? Because no one else in this house knows HOW to change a light bulb! They don't even know that the bulb is BURNED OUT!! They would sit in the dark for THREE DAYS before they figured it out.
And, once they figured it out, they wouldn't be able to find the #&%!*light bulbs despite the fact that they've been in the SAME CABINET for the past 17 YEARS!
But if they did, by some miracle of God, actually find them, 2 DAYS LATER, the chair they dragged to stand on to change the STUPID light bulb would STILL BE IN THE SAME SPOT!!!!!
AND UNDERNEATH IT WOULD BE THE WRAPPER THE FREAKING LIGHT BULBS CAME IN!!! BECAUSE NO ONE EVER PICKS UP OR CARRIES OUT THE GARBAGE!!!! IT'S A WONDER WE HAVEN'T ALL SUFFOCATED FROM THE PILES OF GARBAGE THAT ARE A FOOT DEEP THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE HOUSE!! IT WOULD TAKE AN ARMY TO CLEAN THIS PLACE! AND DON'T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON WHO CHANGES THE TOILET PAPER ROLL!!
I'm sorry. What was the question?
Just to emphasize how much this rant rings true in this household, three pot lights in the basement “bachelor pad” have been out for weeks, pop cans and empty junk food bags litter the area and yesterday I was greeted with an empty toilet paper roll.
But I love my kids! And to their credit, if I ask/nag, they will do anything (within reason) for me.
