    I heard this joke the other day, and thought you guys might get a kick out of it!

    An intrepid photographer went to a haunted castle determined to get a picture of a ghost that was said to appear only once in a hundred years.

    Not wanting to frighten off the ghost, the photographer sat in the dark until midnight when the apparition became visible.

    The ghost turned out to be friendly and consented to pose for one snapshot. The happy photographer popped a bulb into his camera and took the picture.

    After dashing into his studio, the photographer developed the negative and groaned. It was underexposed and completely blank.

    Moral: The spirit was willing, but the flash was weak.

    Old one:

    How many photographers does it take to change a light bulb?
    Forty. One to change the bulb and the remaining thirty nine to scoff, "Well, I coulda done that."

    When Jack London had his portrait made by the noted San Francisco photographer Arnold Genthe, London began the encounter with effusive praise for the photographic art of his friend and fellow bohemian, Genthe.

    "You must have a wonderful camera... It must be the best camera in the world... You must show me your camera."

    Genthe then used his standard studio camera to make what has since become a classic picture of Jack London. When the sitting was finished, Genthe could not contain himself:

    "I have read your books, Jack, and I think they are important works of art. You must have a wonderful typewriter."
