OT: (sorta?) Binary Joke/Riddle

Little bit of background first. I added a tag to my account on a sub-reddit
some time ago that asked "How many bits does it take to get to the center
of a byte." I just thought it was a funny rendition of the owl being asked
how many licks to the center of a tootsie pop and congratulated myself for
coming up with a clever tag but didn't think about the answer. Someone
answered it finally and it was just to perfect so I had to share, or
rather, see if you knew the answer.

So, how many bits does it take to get to the center of a byte?
