Earlier today I posted a very comical answer to the famous light bulb joke. I recommend you read it, as it is extremely funny and perceptive.

Part 2 is devoted to the actual answer. How many teachers does it take to change a light bulb?

None of course. We are not allowed to:

A REFRIGERATOR lightbulb retailing for about $3 at a hardware store ended up costing a far north Queensland state school almost $500 after Queensland’s Public Works Department sent an electrician to install it in a teacher’s government-owned home.

Doomadgee State School, on the Gulf of Carpentaria, was billed $200 for labour alone after the teacher was told workplace health and safety regulations prevented any staff member from buying and replacing the bulb themselves, The Australian understands.

Don’t even get me started!
