Humor: I’m a Light Bulb

Issue 2 and Volume 107.

Two men are working in a factory, discussing how they could get some time off.

“I know how to get some time off,” said one.

“How are you going to do that?’ said the other.

“Watch,” the first said, and climbed up on a rafter.

The foreman asked what he was doing up there, and the man replied, “I’m a light bulb.”

“I think you need some time off,” said the foreman, and the first man walked out of the factory.

After a moment, the second man followed him out the door.

“Where do you think you’re going?” demanded the foreman.

“I can’t work in the dark,” the man replied.
