Straussian Light Bulb Joke

by Steven F. Hayward

Jonah asks what the appropriate observance is for Strauss’s birthday today.  Sorry–you have to know the secret handshake, which, of course, might not be a handshake at all.

Anyway, I’m sure at the party someone will tell the joke: How many Straussians does it take to change a lightbulb?

Answer: None–the light is made conspicuous by its absence.
