“How many Alzheimer’s patients does it take to change a lightbulb?”/“To get to the other side!”

“Why did the chicken cross the road?”/“To get to the other side” is a classic riddle from the 19th century. Another popular riddle is the “lightbulb joke,” asking how many of a certain type it takes to change a light bulb. A popular Alzheimer’s joke confuses these two types of jokes.
