because of all the previous posts, now this:

Q: How many academic types does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Choose one:

  1. It depends on the study that you consult.
  2. What kind of lightbulb?
  3. One to measure the household voltage, one to determine the alternating current frequency, one to determine the right kind of lightbulb based on the voltage and frequency, three to argue over the wattage, one to get to get a graduate assistant to buy the lightbulb, one to get a graduate assistant to put the lightbulb in the socket, and, of course, three to turn the building around.  One more is needed to hire the research assistant needed to count the number of academic types required, and yet another is needed to ponder the underlying combinatorial paradox.
