Some Early Week Humor!

May 22, 2018

Happy Tuesday!  Everybody likes “light bulb” jokes, right? (e.g., how many x does it take to change a light bulb?)  So today, we’ll examine this from the social work discipline.

Question: How many social workers does it take to change a light bulb?
Answer: One. But the light has to want to change.

Or, how about any one of these alternative answers:

  • “The light bulb doesn’t need changing, it’s the system that needs to change.”
  • None. Social workers never change anything.
  • None. They empower it to change itself!
  • None. The light bulb is not burnt out, it’s just differently lit.
  • None. They set up a team to write a paper on coping with darkness.
  • Two. One to change the bulb and another to put your kids into care.
  • Five. One to screw it in, three to form the support group, and one to help with placement.
