DO-RE-MI-FA-SOPRANO

The deliciously talented jazz soprano, Tina May, kept us very entertained the other day with some bravely-shared jokes at the expense of sopranos...

"How many sopranos does it take to change a lightbulb?"

"I don't know how many?"

"Six: one to change the lightbulb -- and five others to say that it really was a bit high for her!"

And here's another...

"How do you know when there's a soprano trying to open the door?"

"How?"

"She's always coming in late and she can never find the right key!"
I was also rather keen on the following joke which will be applauded by any and every performer (not to mention artist and writer) who has ever employed an agent...
"How many agents does it take to change a lightbulb?"

"Go on, how many?"

"None... If it's not working, they're not interested!"
Thanks, Tina...

Being a musician myself, we have one that seems quite apt.
How many folk singers does it take to change a lightbulb ?
Six, one to do it, then five to sing about how good the old one used to be !

Excellent!

Rather like: "How many ACTORS does it takes to change a lightbulb?"

"Six. One to do it and five others to tell you that THEY should have been doing it!"

'How many psychotherapists does it take to change a light bulb?'


'One --- but the light bulb must really want to change.'"

Hey! Did anybody ever think that if you used energy-saving light bulbs, you wouldn't have to change them so often?!

SUZANNE - Yep! You've just invented a new lightbulb joke... 'How many energy conservationists does it take...?' etc., etc.
