It is the oldest joke ever told — older than the one about martinis and boobs, or the one about American healthcare.
“How many skateboarders does it take to screw in a lightbulb?”
Ha ha ha! “One to do it, one to film it, and another ten to say ‘Yeahhh!'” Ha ha ha!
But what about during a global pandemic? Suddenly, in the era of social distancing, those ten friends plus filmer cease to be C.D.C-compliant.

Update — April 7: All New York City skateparks are officially closed. Yes, you get a fine if they catch you hopping the fence.
Unlike playgrounds and basketball courts, skateparks are not yet officially under closure by Governor Cuomo’s orders. However, we have seen mixed reports on social re: police showing up at skateparks and having everyone leave because of the group numbers.
