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

  1. One, but the bulb tends to burn out every time
    it's turned on.

    Ten ? They stand around the ligh bulb, flashing their flashes at the
    light bulb, but nothing happens...

  3. 2501.

    500 to snap the photos.

    1000 to "critique" the images and advise how to do it better and to debate
    long and loud that all the other critiques are wrong because...

    200 to complain that the images would be better if this particular piece
    of equipment was used instead.

    700 to give detailed descriptions of how to make the images better with
    their favorite editing software.

    100 to belittle everyone above.

    and one child who looks at everyone else with an expression of disgust and
    simply walks over, picks up the bulb, and screws it in!

    None. They have their gaffer do it and then just tell eveyone they did
    it themselves.

    No more than one. Two or more, and they'll never agree on the exact
    color light they want out of it.

    Hm... they'd have to determine first, if it's an interchangeable light bulb.
    A simple point & shoot would just have to be left broken.

    ....and then of course, there's the problem of the mount...

    One film photographer - he changes the bulb.

    Or....

    Zero digital photographers. They just "gain up" their LCD displays.

    None. You take the picture anyway and fix it in Photoshop.

    Q. How many pedants does it take to change a light bulb?

    A. Light bulbs are replaced, not changed!

    I think that a light bulb falls within the definition, which includes:
    "The replacing of one thing for another; substitution". Vague
    definitions are something that we have to put up with. (Oh, no, I just
    ended a sentence with a prepostion. I hope they don't send me to
    grammar jail. Drats, that sentence has a split infinitive.)

    Got to go and change ... oops ... replace my kid's diaper. No, I think
    I'll change it before I get into more trouble.

    Keep in mind what a pedant is.

    Only one. He calls the headshrinker.
    But the light bulb has to *want* to change.

    That is exactly my point on the difference between change and replace.

    As for the rest of my post, that was just because I am more of a
    sarcastic PITA than a sarcastic pedant. And no, my kids do not really
    need diapers changed/replaced.

    None. They screw in film containers or don't screw at all any more.

    Reminds me of:

    Q: How many elephants does it take to screw in a light bulb?

    A: Just the usual two, but it needs to be a bloody big light bulb

    No. The gaffer just tells the best boy to slap a jelly on the baby,
    then he tells the photographer that the light bulb has been changed.
