When ever I see these I always go to:

"How many ADD kids does it take to change a light bulb....?"

"you wanna ride bikes?"

Two to point out they've been using light bulbs since the days of incandescents and to ask why the new one has to be "professionally" installed.

If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Oh I thought there was some correlation between Thomas Edison's light bulb, electricity, and the elephant he electrocuted.

You need light to see to eat the pancakes!
And by the way, does anyone know what the current software version is on light bulbs, when an update is coming and what fixes/additional features it will have? And whether it will screw up any working function, like the production of light?
