Dear HUMOR members:

This is a traffic report for the HUMOR list. Registered posters
receive a report each week, so they can gauge the amount of traffic.
Once a month I send this report to the readers, too. Please recommend
HUMOR to your friends and to people on other lists.

We have a separate poster's list so we can protect the list from
accidential mail and from excessive traffic. Any member of our list is
welcome to become a registered poster. You should first request the
*Poster's Guide* by sending the command GET HUMOR GUIDE to the
LISTSERV@UGA.CC.UGA.EDU address. After reading that document, you will
need to send me your numbered answers to a questionnaire (one of which
includes an opportunity to present a bit of humor--testing your
ability to write an appropriate subject line). I suggest that each
poster post something at least once a year, but no more than
three times a week.

Here is some horse humor:

How do you make a slow horse fast? Stop feeding him.

What kind of a horse can take several thousand people for a ride at the same
time? A race horse.

What animal has eyes that cannot see, legs that cannot move, but can jump as
high as the Eiffel Tower? A wooden horse. (The Eiffel Tower cannot jump.)

How do you get a horse out of a bathtub? Pull out the plug.

What is even more remarkable than a horse that can count? A spelling bee.
