Light Bulb Jokes


Light bulb jokes donít get sufficient respect. Perhaps itís because they have such a predictable format, giving the impression that theyíre easy to create. But the strict format is what makes them so hard to write well. After all, sonnets and haikus also follow strict rules, but they are considered formats within which high art may arise.

Iím not claiming that all light bulb jokes are high art, mind you. But then neither are all haikus or sonnets. The small range of variation permissible in lightbulb jokes allows so little room for creativity, though, that I would maintain that a good light bulb joke is a work of higher art than a sonnet or a haiku; the overcoming of such tight limitations to produce art is worthy of our admiration.

It would be possible to analyze light bulb jokes from a sociological point of view, noting the ways in which they both define a group by opposing it to another, and unite two groups in a humorous competition. Iíll leave that to others, however. Iíll only comment that these jokes have become part of folklore. That means that even though they were written by someone at some point, they are now part of public domain. So to all of you who may have written some of the following jokes, tough. Donít be too upset, though; Iíve written some of these myself, and made changes to others, so Iím in the same boat.
