PHILOSOPHY HUMOR Philosophical Humour     http://ling.ucsc.edu/~chalmers/phil-humor.html
From David Chalmers (chalmers@paradox.ucsc.edu), this page presents an array of links to sites that would have made Aristotle giggle. And in case philosophically-induced humour isn't enough for you, David also supplies links to funnies in maths, economics, religion, psychology, physics and science.

LIGHTBULB JOKES

Here are a few samples:

Depends on how you define 'change'.

None--its never the same light bulb again anyway

How many Analytic Philosophers does it take to change a light bulb?
None its a pseudo-problem...light bulbs give off light (hence the name)...if the bulb was broken and wasn't giving off light, it wouldn't be a 'light bulb' now would it? (oh, where has rigor gone?!)

Actually there are none left in existence...they simply "solipcided away"
