Belleview, New York (IP) - Psychiatrists at this famous psychiatric hospital will attempt to change a light bulb.
This promises to be a difficult undertaking in that all all of the light bulbs they have tried to change just sit there and say nothing.
The light bulb which is today's subject is named Lucindus Watt. The patient just sits there quietly with a dim but warm incandescent glow about him and says nothing when questioned by the psychiatrists.
The colleagues of the doctors doing the questioning sit safely behind a sound proof one way mirror observing and taking notes. Some of them express their growing impatience and voice their suspicions that the dim wit at the center of all of the attention will probably maintain his silence like all of the others that came before him.
One doctor reminds the others that he knows of some light bulbs in Thomas Edison's museum on Florida's west coast who have been glowing for over one-hundred years and have never uttered so much as a peep.....
Epilogue: After spending fifty-million dollars and years of research the project finally came to what was to the psychiatrist a happy ending. A janitor had walked into the room behind the mirror and matter-of-factly told the doctors there that that you can change a light bulb but only when he really wants to change.
The doctors will now begin a new project wherein they will attempt to ascertain why Prince Albert insists on always staying in a can and why refrigerators are always running.
