Four Most Classically Reworked Jokes About Richmond

It’s time to retire that hoary old “how many Richmonders does it take to screw in the light bulb” routine (it takes four people, don’t you know — one person to screw it in, three to talk about how great the old light bulb was).

3. What do weatherman Jim Duncan and a Jackson Ward hipster have in common?
