"XKCDians" has already been used, so I'm afraid it's going to have to be "dirigible enthusiasts".

Five. One to install the lightbulb, one to figure out how the lightbulb changed into an apple, on to reverse the effects, one to turn the third's fingers back from sausages to fingers and a final one to just call a damn electrician.

Pyromaniacs.

301. One to say that changing lightbulbs is madness, and 300 to politely inform him that they are sorry but he is quite mistaken and would he please be so kind as to not let the door hit him on the way out, you see we have that problem a lot with these automatic doors, doors were so much better back in my day, back when the grass was green and the sky was clear, and men were men by god, and I remember this one time when the car broke down on the way back from the baseball game, so me and my dad, god how I miss the man, we started hitch-hiking home, but the fellow giving us a ride misunderstood our directions and well, long story short we ended up in Las Vegas; made our way there for a while, selling drugs, and I mean real drugs, not this washed-up crap you kids get nowadays, drugs were so much better back in my day, back when the grass was green and the sky was blue and men were men by god, so anyway me and my dad eventually got out of Vegas and we started a little antique shop, called it Vinnie and Vinnie's, not that we were Italian, but it was in Brooklyn and well you know the score, and then my dad died, choked on a meatball, thought it was ironic at the time, and we knew what irony was back then, that was real irony, by god, so I left Brooklyn got married and had a few kids.
