Uni Lightbulbs
Have you ever wondered how many students it takes to change a lightbulb? Hopefully not, but your gonna find out anyway!
I have no idea who originally came up with these, but it wasn't me!  If your uni isn't there but you can come up with something suitable, send it in.

Aberystwyth.
None - Most of them are still sleeping in the basketball court following housing shortages.
St. Andrews
Three - One to call the butler and two to arrange a tailor in Rome to design and make new suits for the special occasion. If a light bulb in a major building blows then increase to 27 to allow for a brass band playing the last post and five Sun reporters. The following days Sun will contain something along the lines of "Will's Pals in Blown Bulb Horror".
Aston
None - And stay down, they shoot at the lights, that's why the last one went.
Bath
Seven - Five to form a radical new initiative called 'TeamBulb Focus', one to make a public announcement stating "A successful environment is not about pushing yourself to the absolute limit" and one to change the light bulb before it's actually blown.
Birmingham
Nine - One to steal a new bulb from the back of a shop, two for the wheelmen and six to go shoot out all the light bulbs in some Aston student houses.
Brighton
Two if the bulb is in a female dorm, but sixteen if it is in a male dorm - 5 to make a big deal out of the incident, 10 to calm those 5 down, and one to run and fetch some girls to change the bulb.
Bristol
The whole farm - Mam and Pa scratch their heads quizzically wondering why they just had light and now they don't, lil' Billy to take the truck to the city to find out whas' going on!
Cambridge
Three - one to mix the martinis, one to call the electrician and one to call daddy to pay for the bill.
Cardiff
Two - one to distract the guards at the Millennium Stadium whilst the other steals a light bulb from the changing rooms
Coventry
Two - One to take the bulb out and another to glass a random stranger's face with it.
DeMontfort
Seven - Two to change the bulb and five to write an interpretive modern drama about the experience.
Essex
Five - One to change it, one to hold her handbag whilst she changes it, one to make sure her thong is in clear view of all the surrounding men, and two to leer loudly at passers by, tempting them to "av a look at dis!"
Exeter
As many people as can possibly be involve, all rah-rahing, with their collars up, driving around the house in their new car daddy had brought, to show it off, then after the ordeal they will probably need to recover with a holiday in St Tropez.
Glasgow
None of your f"cking business!
Imperial
Eight - It's not that one isn't smart enough to do it, it's just that they're all violently twitching from too much stress to achieve coordinated movement alone.

Three - One to change it and two to find a way to get high off the old bulb.
Leicester
Four - One to change the bulb and three to complain bitterly that it wouldn't have been allowed to happen at Oxbridge, so please give us some funding. Please.

Only one, but he gets 10 course credits for doing it.
