How many Citroen owners does it take to change a light bulb?
Two. One to change the bulb and another to catch the LHM spillage as the old bulb is removed.

30. One two try and make sence of the Haynes, one to wield the angle grinder, one to apply the first aid, one two make the food as it WILL NOT tkae more than an hour [;)], one to change the bulb, and another 25 to stand with baited breathe to see if it actually works

I think it is an anagram or faux anagram!

Sincere apologies gentlemen; but it's not original and I can't work out what the words might be either. I know it's cruel, but I was kind of hoping that greater brains might offer a solution.
Strangely, I have seen it twice. Once in this, dyslexic version; once referring to those magic hand-held gadgets that are meant to be able to recognise your handwriting - iPAQs - there might be a clue there but it didn't help me.
I guess this has gone so far off-thread it should be squashed or relocated!

Q: How many members of the U.S.S. Enterprise does it take to change a light
bulb?
A: 7. Scotty will report to Captain Kirk that the light bulb in the
Engineering Section is burnt out, to which Kirk will send Bones to
pronounce the bulb dead. Scotty, after checking around, notices that they
have no more new light bulbs, and complains that he can't see in the dark
to tend to his engines. Kirk must make an emergency stop at the next
uncharted planet, Alpha Regula IV, to procure a light bulb from the
natives. Kirk, Spock, Bones, Sulu, and 3 red shirt security officers beam
down. The 3 security officers are promptly killed by the natives, and the
rest of the landing party is captured. Meanwhile, back in orbit, Scotty
notices a Klingon ship approaching and must warp out of orbit to escape
detection. Bones cures the native king who is suffering from the flu, and
as a reward the landing party is set free and given all of the light bulbs
they can carry. Scotty cripples the Klingon ship and warps back to the
planet just in time to beam up Kirk et. al. The new bulb is inserted, and
the Enterprise continues with its five year mission.
Lots more like these....Amaze your friends....

miked,
Right, that'll be the one.
I just trawled Google to see if I could find what might have been intended by the writer, but there is no explanation. All totally unsatisfactory and I regret having mentioned it now!
I did, however, find:
How many surrealists does it take to change a light bulb?
Three: One to hold the giraffe, the other to run the bathwater.
On the other hand, the above tales are excellent! FOTFL re mail list subscribers.
They are all on here too.
