Screwing a Light Bulb

I saw this on the students' notice board whilst I was coming out of the Telecommunication Engineering lab last Friday. I guess you should be an "academic" to get the joke in this.

Q: How many gradual (sorry, that's supposed to be "graduate") students does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A: "I'm afraid we don't know, but make my stipend tax-free, give my advisor a $30,000 grant of the taxpayer's money, and I'm sure he can tell me how to do the grunt work for him so he can take the credit for answering this incredibly vital question."

Have fun.
