Thought I might start the all-too-predictable bulb thread. ;)

Came up with this one on my own so I don't know anyone else has come up with the same thing.

How many aikidoka does it take to change a light bulb?

None, they'll keep waiting for the lightbulb to do something.

The problem with your joke Brian is that your answer is too good. No one can come up with a better one. :)

Bunker dug? Sandbags ready? Good. Y'all have your tomatoes ready to fire? Excellent.

theatrically clears throat

Aikidoka don't change lightbulbs. We lead the old bulbs out of the socket and the new bulb into it, in the spirit of harmony.

How many aikido sensei does it take to screw in a lightbulb. 1 but he doesn't screw it in, he just holds it in place and lets the world revolve around him.

You'd need to know the light bulbs lineage before it can be changed

alternatively

it's not the lightbulb that doesn't work, it's your lightbulb that doesn't work, there's no need to change the true lightbulb

or

lightbulbs aren't true budo

How many aikidoka to change a lightbulb?

None, in the true spirit of minimum effort, maximum efficiency, get an electrician to do it!

And one who is not an Aikidoka to tell the Aikidokas they don't know how.

And I don't know how many more to say, "That's not how we do it at our dojo!"

Lightbulbs will never work in the real world.

And someone to come along and say that lightbulbs are just for show, and that they don't work and say to study Brazilian flash-lights

Maybe it is not the lightbulb that needs to be changed but your assumptions, Grasshopper.

Use your ki to light it.
