Writer Lightbulb Jokes

Well, We Think They're Funny

Lightbulb jokes for Writers:

Q. How many editors does it take to change a lightbulb?
A. Only one; but first they have to rewire the entire building.

Q. How many sales directors . . .?
A. (pause) I get it! This is one of those lightbulb jokes, right?

Q. How many managing editors . . .?
A. You were supposed to have changed that lightbulb last week!

Q. How many art directors . . .?
A. Does it HAVE to be a lightbulb?

Q. How many copy editors . . .?
A. The last time this question was asked, it involved art directors.
Is the difference intentional? Should one or the other instance be
changed? It seems inconsistent.

Q. How many marketing directors . . .?
A. It isn't too late to make this neon instead, is it?

Q. How many proofreaders . . .?
A. Proofreaders aren't supposed to change lightbulbs. They should
just query them.

Q. How many writers . . .?
A. Ten. One to change it; nine to think they could have done it better.

Q. How many cover artists . . .?
A. Why is there...an eggbeater, I think?...sticking out of this light

Q. How many publishers . . .?
A. Three. One to screw it in, two to hold down the author.

Q. How many booksellers . . .?
A. Only one, and they'll be glad to do it, too, except no one shipped
them any. They also didn't know you had any light bulbs coming out
this year.

I thought I'd throw these it too:
Q. How many automobile mechanics . . .?
A. Sorry, we can't get the part. You have to buy a new living room.

Q. How many poltergeists . . .?
A. Nobody knows. You can never catch them doing it.

Q. How many Mexican bandits . . .?
A. We don't need no stinkin' lightbulbs.
