.....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......

Nazis should be capitalized, since it is the proper name of a political party, such as Republicans and Democrats.

I don't respect nazis, spelling or otherwise enough to capitalize the n.

Thanks Harry. I'm glad this put a smile on everyones face. I read this on a car forum earlier in the day and it got even better. Someone posted asking information about the performance and mpg advantages of installing a K&N air filter in their car. Immediately the thread lit up with the type of posts this joke makes light (or is it lite) of.

You left out:

1) The person who chimes in with "I have a NOS GE 4735 30W projector bulb, still mint in the package"

...followed by:

2) "do you want to sell it? I have been looking for one of those for years!"

...and we also have:

3) "That was the first light bulb I ever changed. I used it all through high school"

...and then:

4) Person who posts the ebay link for said light bulb.
