In the humor department... there is the classic:

"How many potters does it take to screw in a light bulb?"

(Keep it G rated folks. At the most PG-13.)

Very good big Dave, but you forgot one. .. . one to catch the guy on the wheel when he falls off!

Obviously a trick question John since the light bulb has always been there and was installed by an expert.
Articles have been written about how well it lights the room.
Even though it appears to be no longer serving it's purpose, it is leaving no carbon footprint.
Nothing needs to be changed. : - )

Ten. One to change it, and nine to reassure him about how good it looks.

One, potters at one time or another being very poor are unable to afford help and must do everything on their own. If they call another potter friend over to help they end up just talking about pots from the latest firing and drinking a few _____ (add beverage of choice), then the friend leaves and the bulb remains unchanged and forgotten.

No need for the third guy. Just a very big, padded, splash pan.

I think we need an additional potter to devise a homemade tool to do the job better, and make a utube video to show how it works.

Just one. S/he forgets about the light bulb and makes a lantern from scratch instead.
