Hahaha! I love light bulb jokes. lol "12 to leave board forever because they can't handle the light bulb controversy"

p.s. I noticed on your profile for favorite movies you put "Stories of impossible loves that succeed against all odds." Have you seen "The Notebook"? If you haven't, I sincerely urge you to--it is one of my favorite movies but be warned, it will make you bawl.

Having been on many boards, I really liked this one. Makes me ever so glad we're retired and will never again sit through those meetings.

This is a new lightbulb joke for me.
Years ago, when I was in our state Dpt of Health, I even saw a list of lightbulb jokes that applied to health professionals--e.g. epidemiologists. Now, you don't see epidemiologists feature very often in jokes.

Omg Kat, can we SOOOO relate to this??? Lmao!

KatDoc said...

Yeah, Holly - I immediately thought about LTAS when I heard this one.

KGMom: I would love to hear an epidemiologist joke, esp. if it involved light bulbs!

Helena: I have heard about "The Notebook," of course, but haven't read the book or seen the movie, yet. I'll be sure to have a whole box of tissues handy.

NC: Ah, retirement! Some day ...

That's so true! So funny! I was a member of a board for a swim club for a few years. Every week someone threatened to quit the board for the most ridiculous reasons. I finally quit because of the ridiculous people and their squabbles :o) Petty people on power trips.
