    These are great. Have you seen the lightbulb jokes for church denominations?
    My favorite: How many United Methodists does it take to change a light bulb?
    Undetermined. Whether your light is bright, dull, or completely out, you are loved –you can be a light bulb, turnip bulb, or tulip bulb. Church wide lighting service is planned for Sunday. Bring bulb of your choice and a covered dish.

  5. I love those. I did something similar in my “How to get in the USNA” book but this was for Ivy League colleges. Of course, you’ll agree USNA’s is the best answer:

    How many students does it take to screw in a light bulb at:

    Harvard: One—he holds the bulb and the world revolves around him
    Yale: None—New Haven looks better in the dark
    Penn: Only one, but he gets six credits for it
    Brown: Eleven—one to change the bulb and ten to share the experience
    Princeton: Two—one to mix the martinis and one to call the electrician
    Cornell: Two—One to change the bulb and one to crack under pressure
    Stanford: One, dude
    USNA: One
