.......does it take to change a light bulb?
1 to order a new bulb from Wiggle and 1 to smugly tell him it would have been cheaper from Ribble
Campag or Shimano?
None.....based on the number of cyclists round here that don't seem to have stumbled across lights in the first place.
Should it be called a 'bulb' or a 'lamp'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It depends, if it's a red one, then why wait for it to change
None, if the Daily Mail has suggested that defunct light bulbs be replaced.

They all stayed up too late last night, enjoying themselves, and do not want to go to a diy store to find the right size bulbs. It is too far to cycle down to Speicher's house where they would find a year's supply of any bulb ever made. Spandex needs the light on so that he can reconnect his computer to the internet.
