How many ChucKists does it take to change a light bulb?  

Four.  One to make a feature request, one to develop a custom light bulb interface that works great but is so complex that nobody else will ever use it, one to imagine a future in which ChucK can change it's own light bulbs, and one to hold the light bulb up while the world revolves around ChucK.  

How do you annoy a group of ChucKists?

Ask them how to do file I/O in ChucK.  
Mention garbage collection just one more time...  
Joke about their excessive CPU consumption.  
Tell them that Csound is more powerful than ChucK.  
Ask them if ChucK can take advantage of multiple processors.  

If ChucK were an automobile, what kind of automobile would ChucK be?

1.  A Corvette because it's built for performance but it's always in the shop.  
2.  A 1967 VW beetle because it's cute and everybody loves it.  
3.  A Corvair because it is "unsafe at any speed".  

Why did the ChucKist cross the road?

1.  Because the other four ChucKists were busy changing a light bulb.
2.  Because he was livecoding and wasn't paying attention to where he was going.  
3.  Because the CPU is always faster on the other side.
