This is what most people don't understand about lightbulbicians. It's not about the change, it's about the presentation. You don't even need to be able to change a light bulb, but if you can make the audience interested in the plot and development, you are a light bulb changer.

This should be moved to "Secret Sessions"!
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

Sure, man. But will it get the chicks?

And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

If you do it right, you could even use a chrome lightbulb. Ask Bill Palmer.

Change a light bulb ... big deal.

ANYBODY can be a magician with enough suspicious-looking "magic apparatus." REAL magicians don't have to use a crutch like that.

I've been widely praised for doing miraculous things in rooms that had no light bulbs at all. Just ask some of my old girlfriends.

Now this is a good post. Just like the life of a Café goer.
You are 100% right on everything you said.

Is it a union job?

Light bulb changing is NOT about getting "Chicks", unless you don't have a personality. Maybe you should try talking to her, asking her about your day. Before you start changing light bulbs to impress her you should discuss her bra size. Magic is much less important! Perhaps ask her weight, girls dig it when a guy asks her how much she weighs. Trust me!

How many Café posters does it take to change a light bulb?

The question has already been asked and answered!

is there a Martha Stewart version for folks who want to make this special?

Josh,
Are you saying that I should check to see if she is hiding lightbulbs in her sweater first before doing my coolest tricks to her?
Thanks for the tips, man. All help is appreciated.

I'm going to do some "lightbulbs" field work right now. I'll let you know how it goes.

What about the guy who, to the cheers of onlookers, offers to pay the $2.00 for the lightbulb if everyone else will just shut up about it?

See that makes a little more sense... assuming you look back a few posts which would waste everybody's time.
