How many UUs does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

"We choose not to make a statement either in favor of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if in your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for you, that is fine. You are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your light bulb. During next Sunday's service, we will explore a number of light bulb traditions, including incandescent, fluorescent, three-way, long-life and tinted; all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence."

How many UU's does it take to screw in a light bulb?
12 to sit on the board which appoints the nominating and personnel committee.
5 to sit on the the nominating and personnel committee which appoints the House committtee.
8 to sit on the house committtee which appoints the light bulb changing committee.
4 to sit on the light bulb changing committee which chooses who will screw in the light bulb. those four then give their own opinion of "screwing in methods" while the one actually does the installation.

After completion it takes 100 individuals to complain about the method of installation, another 177 to debate the ecological impact of using the light bulb at all, and at least one to insist that back in her day - the lit chalice was quite enough.

But the sad thing is the lightbulb would never get screwed in. You know how hard it is to motivate a UU??
