Photographer's Note

In the United States when utility crews make repairs on a street, they generally post signs that read, "Men at Work." It probably makes more sense to call this photo "Man at work, witnessed by six others." A break in a water main had caused puddling above the ground and was threatening to develop into a geyser. Fortunately, these workers got to the problem before it became a geyser... after digging down about 3 m and repairing the broken main.

I liked Bev Robinson's joke:
• "How many workmen does it take to replace a lightbulb? The answer is six. One to screw in the bulb, and the others to turn the room around."

We have many variations in the United States: by State, by disposition, by culture, by gender...
• In Virginia, six. One to screw in the bulb, five to remind us how the earlier bulb was better.
• Among feminists, fifteen. One to screw in the bulb, fourteen to be supportive.
• At the great medical school of Johns Hopkins University, two. One to stand on the ladder, a second to kick out the ladder.
• Among Californians, thirty-five. One to screw in the bulb, the other thirty-four to 'share in the experience.'
• In New York, "What's it to you! None of your business."
