Q: How many Americans does it take to change a lightbulb ?
One to replace it and one to tell him it was burned out (in states that still have car-inspection laws.) A: Three.
One to stand on the ladder, and two to carry enough light bulbs until one is found that isn't defective.
A: 250,000,000, one to change it and 249,999,999 to debate whether it it was politically correct.
