How Many Oratorians Does It Take To Change a Lightbulb?

Priest, deacon and cleric (dressed as subdeacon) with assistant priest in cope and acolytes and thurifer, with choir and other ministers, assemble at the foot of a step ladder. The priest sotto voce says:
Priest: Fratres, renovemus. Brethren, let us change.
Ministers: Sancte Pater, cur renovemus? Holy Father, why should we change?
Having reverenced the step ladder all depart, with lighted candles, singing Lux Aeterna accompanied by musicians on period instruments.

Ave, Doctor prudentissimus, sapientissimus, et intellectissimus...et humour-issimus! This must be circulated far AND wide!! I laughed out loud in the library at SDSU when I read this. :-)
