This week's group writing project is not from me. It's from Carol Anne of Five O'Clock Somewhere. She challenges you to create a light bulb joke with the format "How many ____ sailors does it take to change a light bulb? ____, (because) ____."
For example, "How many Etchells sailors does it take to change a light bulb? It doesn't matter, because they're all busy bragging about their fraculators."
Hmmm. I have no idea what a "fraculator" is, but I guess you get the idea. Full details of how to participate at the bottom of Technology has been unkind to me.
So go across to Five O'Clock Somewhere and help Carol Anne set a new world record for number of entries in a sailing blog group writing project. The current record is only 31 for the Lists project last month. I'm sure we can beat that. I mean, how hard is it to think of a light bulb joke and insult some fellow sailors in the process? Go for it. Do it now.
And while you are at Five O'Clock Somewhere check out some of Carol Anne's stories about sailing such as Ready to sail? and Dismasted! "It's like sex" says Carol Anne. (I think she means sailing, not getting dismasted.)
OK. So dream up some light bulb jokes and enter them in Carol Anne's group writing project. No whining Joe; just do it. Don't leave the jokes here. This is all about helping Carol Anne set the new world record. Do it now.
