For Friday Fun this week, a roundup of some, er, observations that I made on Facebook.
Q: How many teenagers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: In a minute. I said, in a minute. Yes. Yes! I said I would, didn't I? All right, sheesh! I'm doing it now, okay? All RIGHT, I'll do it. God, you are SO ANNOYING.

Q: How many teenagers does it take to change a light bulb?
Q: I said, how many teenagers does it take to change a light bulb?
Q: I SAID, HOW MANY TEENAGERS DOES IT TAKE TO CHANGE A LIGHT BULB?
A: Did you say something?

Q: How many teenagers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: That's NOT FAIR! It's not my turn! I did it last time!

Q: How many teenagers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: I DID do it. I DON'T KNOW know why it doesn't work. You said change the light bulb and I CHANGED it, ok? It's not MY fault that you buy defective bulbs. Why do I have to redo it? It's NOT FAIR!

Q: How many teenagers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: I FORGOT. All RIGHT, god, I'll do it later, OK? Leave me ALONE.

Q: How many teenagers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: I DON'T HAVE TIME to do that, I have SO MUCH HOMEWORK because we have a test tomorrow that's SO HARD.
Q: How do you know it's a hard test?
A: Everyone keeps saying so on Facebook.
Why yes, as a matter of fact, these were inspired by real events. :-)
