I've been tasked (by my wife) with coming up with a corporate, work-safe joke with a specific punchline. That punchline is 'change'. Help? I've got nothing.

How many self help books does it take to screw in a light bulb?
One, but the light bulb really has to want to change.

The Dalai Lama walks into a pizza shop and says "make me one with everything". After he pays for the pizza, he says "where's my change?" - "Ah, change comes from within."

How many lightbulbs does it take to Yogi Berra?

A duck walks into a bar. The bartender stares in disbelief as the duck flaps up onto the counter, gestures at one of the taps, and turns to him expectantly. He tries to chase the duck out, but the duck just waddles back in and repeats the gesture, with an indignant quack thrown in for good measure. Finally, the bartender gives up, pours him the beer. The duck bobs his head, flies to one of the outside tables and back, and then raises one wing to reveal a small billfold. The bartender (who after chasing the duck out twice is really starting to be a little disturbed by how well he understands duck-pantomime) carries the beer out to the patio and takes $5 from the billfold. The duck quacks what's probably a thank you.

The process repeats itself the next day, and the bartender starts to wonder. His working theory for what's going on is a wealthy eccentric who decided to train a duck to get his alcohol. Still, he figures, math has to be a little beyond what ducks are capable of, right? The duck (and by extension, the wealthy eccentric) is just trusting that he'll be honest when he takes the money out. So, when the duck comes in on the third day, the bartender takes two fivers out of the billfold. The duck, rather than flying out to indicate a table, stays on the bar counter staring at the bartender.

"What?" says the bartender.

And the duck says (well, squawks, really)...

Are they too young to get a Beatles pun? "Change, my baby's got me locked up in change. But not the kind that you can see (yeah!)."

Best answer: This is definitely more of a riddle than a joke, but it was a great stinger at the end of an issue of Sandman. I'm paraphrasing below:

Delirium: What's that word for things that aren't the same, you know that one that lets you know time is happening?

Dream: Change.
