Plagiarism

I freely admit I stole this entry. I was blog hopping (like bar hopping without the booze) and I found the bit below on suricattus's site. Since she admits she got it from someone else, I feel free to do the same. If you follow spec fic, it's pretty funny.

How many fantasy characters does it take to change a light bulb?

Epic Fantasy Writer: How many you got?

Traditional Fantasy Writer: One. There can be only one Chosen One.

Quest Fantasy Writer: One, but s/he must form a party of adventurers to retrieve the magic pliers first.

Romantic Fantasy Writer: Two, but they must do it while sharing a passionate kiss.

Erotic Fantasy Writer: Three, but they must do it naked while sharing a passionate kiss.

Dark Fantasy Writer: One, as long as it's done with a tentacle slithering from the bottomless pit.

Urban fantasy writer: Three. A werewolf, a vampire, and a chick in leather with a gun.

Literary Fantasy Writer: One, but it will take me four pages to describe it.

Slipstream Fantasy Writer: Is the light bulb an allegory for birth or death?

Science Fiction Writer: Who still uses light bulbs? Honestly...
