Q. How many anthroposophists does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A. I don't know. Steiner never gave an indication.

Q. How many Waldorf teachers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A. Seven: One to read the verse, one to light the candle, one to sound the chime, one to compose the request to the administrator, two to review the request to the administrator, and one to lead the closing song.

Q. How many Waldorf kindergarteners does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A. None. That doesn't enter the curriculum until the higher grades.

A. Two: One to consult with the teacher to decide that natural lighting would be more beneficial to the child and one to screw the darn thing in anyway.

Aw, come on, you could make up one for homeschooling. Something about how many DAYS it takes a Waldorf homeschooling parent to screw in a lightbulb, given that you have to research the available options, find the correct verses, order books from the Steiner library, have a phone consultation with an expert, buy supplies from a Waldorf supplier, write a personalized fairy tale about it, figure out how to work through the inner message of the lightbulb change in various artistic media, etc. (or get it done immediately by purchasing a pre-packaged lightbulb change, but then have to put up with the naysayers who claim that it isn't "true" waldorf since you didn't work through the process yourself).
