Well, I have to agree with everything, up to a point... George W. was certainly a brighter bulb than a couple of other recent occupants of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue that I could mention, except that I'd probably get warned about it!! :D

(On the other hand, If George W. can be mentioned without sanction, I don't see why it should make any difference if I mentioned William J. or Barack H. by name... )

You forgot to mention that someone would find a way to relate the lightbulb discussion to Nazis and Godwin the whole thread.

"I'm going to say this again, I did not have sexual relations with that LightBulb, Ms. LewLightBulb, I never told anybody to lie, not a single time never. These allegations are false and I need to go back to work for the American people."

Someone to comment that the plural of "URL" is URLs, not URL's.

.....and to make it more environmentally relevant, or for anyone conscious of his (minus 10 points...not PC) carbon footprint, the merits of changing to the 'bulb-lite' could be brought in......
