Hardy, You forget these:

One from post structuralists questioning whether it is ever really 
possible to intend to change a lightbulb.

Two from socialists threatening to report you to the custodians' union.

Two from France pointing out that the proper term is ampoule and 
threatening to report you to the custodians' union when they return from 
vacances.

One from Stephen Greenblatt supposing what Thomas Edison must have 
thought and felt upon first seeing a firefly.

Three from original performance practitioners averring that tallow 
candles are so much more enlightening.

One from Michael Wood enthusiastically lauding the new bulb as 
"incandescent".
