How Many Riders
Does it Take to Change a Light Bulb?
ENDURANCE RIDER: Light bulb? Do
you mind, I'm trying to get my horse's pulse / respiration /
hydration levels to respectable levels. Once that is done, I
have another 50 miles to go before I can even think about
changing a light bulb. Um, any chance that the light bulb could
assist me in my conditioning regimen.....
DRESSAGE QUEEN: Me! Change a
light bulb? Are you joking? I couldn't possibly be expected to
subject myself to such a menial task. Change it yourself. Oh,
and wash your hands when you are finished. The very thought!
CLASSICAL DRESSAGE QUEEN: These
things can not be rushed, but must be approached slowly, with
great patience, and adherence to the principles laid down by the
classical masters, otherwise the light bulb will not attain its
true potential, but will forever just be a shadow of its true
self. Never, ever, use any type of gadget when changing the
light bulb. That is an offense to the principles of classical
light bulb changing.
EVENTER: Hmm, as soon as my arm
is out of this sling broken after falling off at that large
stone wall (whilst riding Hell For Leather cross country) I'll
change it. Until then, deal with the dark. It will put hair on
your chest. Only prissy Dressage Queens require lights, anyway.
SHOW JUMPER: Why on Earth would
I need to change a light bulb when the whole world knows that
the sun shines out of my ass. Why, when I release over a jump,
the spectators are practically blinded.
NATURAL HORSEMAN You must
instill respect in the light bulb, so that it sees you as the
Alpha light bulb, using "light bulb dynamics" (video
available at $99.00 on my Website). Once you have done this, you
will find that there is really no need to change the light bulb
at all, but that the light bulb will, with very little coaxing
from you (using patented "light bulb coaxer" designed
by me - $99.00 each, for extra $49.99 you get video thrown in)
will behave as all good light bulbs should.
