How many road cyclists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?128

I've been meaning to ask this for awhile, but as I can't come up with a good answer on my own...well. The roadie lifeastyle does seem to lend itself to this joke though. I'm betting some of you efficionados and esoterica nuts can fill in the blank.

1- Two: one to screw it in and the other to question his set-up.
2- Three: One to screw it in and two to break his wind.
3- One: He got dropped.
4- Two: one to screw it in and one to provide support.
5- Two: one to screw it in and the other to levy doping charges.
6- 150: one to screw it in and 149 to say: "I coulda been there."
7- Two: One German to do the work and a Frenchman to fear he'll do it again. (bad, I know)
8- Two: One to screw it in and the other to yell "Spin man!"
9- Two: One to screw it up and the other to crash as a result.
10- None: too windy.

etc....
Is that a Campy or Shimano bulb? (nm)bikedodger

3: One to screw it in, one to stand there and talk about how he missed out on the sprint at yesterday's ride, and one to ask "Is that English or Italian threading".

Four:

-one to check if it is the right fit
-one to check his HRM for wattage
-one to post it on the RBR
-one to see if he could have gotten it cheaper overseas
"wenches?" that was a good one if intentional (nm)ColnagoFE
