And That’s Before Sharing

Q: How many people does it take to change a lightbulb on Facebook? A: 1,565!
1 to change the light bulb and to post that it has been changed.
56 to argue over whether it’s “lightbulb” or “light bulb”.
14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how it could have been changed differently.
1,275 to click Like, Love, HaHa, Wow, Sad, or Angry before reading anything.
219 to complain that the page is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb-specific group.

These numbers will rise substantially when someone’s light bulb burns out, so they share it again to complain no one has changed it for them yet.

(Yes, I purposefully went back and forth in putting spaces in “light bulb” — complaining about that part of the humor would make you a dim bulb.)
