Tee-hee! I saw this on "the Daily Show" with Jon Stewart (best show on TV IMHO) a few weeks ago during Bush's trip to Poland:

"President Bush failed in his bid to change a lightbulb, even with the assistance of four local men..."

There are so many potential answers. Here are a couple:
#. At least two. One to do the deed, and the other to call him/her a tourist and criticize him/her for spending so little time on that socket.
#. Just one, but she wants you to listen to her ordeal when she is finished, and becomes upset or says you are jealous if you bend don't appear interested or ask her questions.

Three.
One to hold the lightbulb, and two to steady the 22" carry-on with wheels underneath him/her.

None: They are too busy debating what to wear, to actually change the lightbulb.

Of course, they will only install black lights.

Fodorites are well equipped, because they pack (a) light. (I know, I know, I'm pushing it.)

Are we sure that the bulb _should_ be changed.

After all we dont want to impose our cultural opinions upon the locals...

Maybe they prefer the bulb to be broken

Art - this subject has been done to death on this forum - perhaps you could do a 'search'?

Anyone know if that lightbulb is on the train between Rome and the Amalfi coast?

Well, if you're staying in a Roman Homes property, none. Don't change the bulb, because Dr. Abate will scream at you that there was nothing wrong with the old bulb.
Otherwise, one, provided the Fodorite uses a washcloth as insulation against the heat of the old bulb.

Well, I bet the lightbulb doesn't need changing, it needs replacing because the gypsies got it. Or those people in Madrid. You should always keep your lightbulb in a safe place, tucked away from pickpockety fingers.

Is changing a light bulb worth it?

How many North Carolinians?

Actually only 1 but you need another one to go out for the BBQ and beer.

Tony, actually you need 4. One for the lightbulb; one to get the beer and one for the BBQ; a fourth to make sure they bring it back!

Mike, this may be the ONE time that you can wear shorts and not embarass your home nation. Of course, you can't wear them if you are overweight or if they are bright pink. Just make sure you keep your voice at a low level and that the shorts are not too tight and I'll let you change that light bulb for me. (I always did like to make things as easy on myself as possible. )
