Haveil Havalim #78 is Barbarian Bait 

Q: How many Barbaric Yawps does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: None because a barbaric yawp is a loud sound, not a thing.

Q: Ok, so how many Barbarians who Yawp does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: None, barbarians didn't have light bulbs, they just lit the thatch roof on fire when they wanted to do a little reading before bed.

Q: Ok, ok, enough. Stop kidding around. I need an answer to this one now. How many Barbarians who Yawp or Barbaric Yawps -- either one -- does it take to compile a fantastic array of the week's finest posts from the "J-Blogsphere"?
A: Is that a trick question?
Q: No, really, how many does it take?
A: Uh, none?
Q: No, don't be ridiculous, Haveil Havalim, the blog carnival in question, can't write itself. It takes a lot of work to put one of those together.
A: So, hmmmm, how about 10. It takes 10 Barbarians who Yawp.
Q: Uh oh, you're gonna make him mad. C'mon! It only takes one! Those barbarians are pretty strong and compile blog carnivals with the strength of 10 ordinary men.
A: Does this mean everyone should go read the Barbaric Yawp's amazingly great Havail Havalim post?
Q: Let me ask the questions around here. But yes, of course they should. Absolutely. And tell the big guy "Yawp!" for me.
