Frank Lloyd Lamp

The bulb in Frank’s lamp flickers erratically.

Olga: The bulb’s on the blink, Frank.

Frank: That’s a technical problem. Not a design problem.

Olga: Need we call a man?

Frank: Look at it this way. The electrician won’t come tonight. And he probably won’t have the right bulb.

Olga: I’ll try screwing it up, there, that seems to have fixed it.

Frank: Well, I’ll be blowed.




How many architects does it take to change a light-bulb?

Choose one from the following options:

A: None. They can't get planning permission for the new one.

B. Just one, but he has to coordinate ten other professionals who are doing this quiet complicated task.

C.   Four. One to criticize light-bulb design, one to sketch a new light-bulb design, one to call in a consulting engineer, one to bill for professional services.
