The static electricity that you produce consists of a huge amount of free electrons that are desperately seeking partners of opposite charge. The charge on your body can be in excess of 10,000 Volts, but since the Amperage is so small all you feel is a small shock when you ground yourself against a metal object. Note that you don’t get a shock using the bulb, because that energy lights the bulb.
