How Many Lawyers Does it Take to Change a Light Bulb in NY?

 

A:

Three.

One to order the light bulb.

One to unscrew the old bulb.

One to read the warnings on the bulb and draft a 10 page complaint to the bulb manufacturer explaining why their instructions are deficient and defective. The biggest problem with the light bulb instructions are that it does not say to wait till the burned out lightbulb cools down before removing. It does not say "Warning: Hot. Do Not Touch."

As a result, the third lawyer must now draft a lawsuit for a defective product against the bulb manufacturer while his genius colleague heads to the emergency room to treat the 3rd degree burn on his hand.

Ahh...if only some lawyers had common sense :-)
