Q How many Quantum Theorists does it take to change a light bulb?

A Not two. It is impossible for two Quantum Theorists to agree about the state of the light bulb and when that is in danger of happening, one of them has to vanish.

The only time a Quantum Theorist will know where a light bulb is, is when it is moving but he won't know how fast. The moment it stops moving he will go red, start muttering and demand another light bulb.

Either way, a Quantum Theorist may have Colour and Strangeness but no Charm.

You mean quantum theorists are all entangled?
