The reason why this joke doesn't work is the sad fact that humour depends on targeting somebody.
In the original version, Poles or Irishmen, depending on where you were based.
In newer versions, it might be an occupation; Psychiatrists? Only one, but the bulb really must want to be changed.**
"Humans" are much too broad a target.

*Ah yes, that reminds me. The question needs to be "change a lightbulb", because "screw in" gives away the point of the original punchline. So this is also an illustration of how a joke can be spoiled by inaccurate wording.

How many light-bulbs can a priest screw-in?
Nun!

Confucius say: 'Why you always gotta make me say stuff? Sometimes I just like to go for quiet walks beside the water, feed the ducks, and fart when children pull my finger.
Nobody want to know what Confucius think? What Confucius ponder? What Confucius contemplate? What Confucius dream?
What Confucius do on a Saturday night, when it's time to dance? What Confucius really thinking, while pretending to listen to boring brother's wife? What Confucius thinks the perfect gift would be, for the person that has everything?
Leave me alone! '

That reminded me of an oldie. Why are nuns called nuns? Because they don't get Nun. (None) all gone, bye bye.

thats a redundant joke to us lol a bad joke is only suppose to make the creator laugh i think lol thats why its bad


That would then be only a joke on the originator, right, and technically, not a joke, even a bad joke?
(Self defense of a bad joke is a joke however.)

If we're getting onto this line of thought, we may as well quote Blackadder Goes Forth;
Private Baldrick; "My father was a nun, sir."
Captain Blackadder; "No he wasn't."
Private Baldrick; "Yes he was, sir. Whenever he was up in court, and they asked him for his occupation, he always said 'Nun'."

i'm terrible at telling jokes... one time when i was a kid i wanted to tell my cousin the joke, why did the monkey fall out of the tree? because he was dead. so i looked right at her and said 'why did the dead monkey fall out of the tree?'

twenty years later and that's still coming up....
