Cruising above the infobahn in my AOLicopter, this is Jim Goldman with
the traffic report.
   Once a month this report goes out to the subscribers of this list.
I warned you last month, and now here it is.
   First I want to thank everyone on this list for your continued encourage-
ment andsupport.  :)  I want my mailbox to be open to everyone and anyone who
has a concern, question, or problem pertaining to this list.  That's
   I've gotten a few questions from different people on this list that I
think should be addressed here.  One person asked what it means to be a
"concealed" subscriber.  Simply put, for one reason or another the
subscriber does not want this list traced back to him or her.  If you want
to do this yourself, send LISTSERV@UGA.CC.UGA.EDU the command SET HUMOR
CONCEAL.  This and much more you can find by sending the listserv address
the command GET HUMOR GUIDE.  My question to those of you who are, in fact,
concealed, is "Why do you have your membership concealed?"  I promise that
my reasons for asking are simply based on curiosity, and that I will
immediately delete your mail once I have read it...  And if anyone emails
me asking what kind of answers I got to that, I will NOT tell them...
 And now, at long last, here is the current weekly traffic report:

And now for some obligatory humor >sexual, a little bit sick<

  A suburban matron walked past a pet store and was unable to resist
an adorable Pekinese puppy.  Being in an erotic mood at the nime, she
named it Titswiggle, and she became devoted to her pet.
  One morning just as she was drying off from her shower, she was
horrified to spot her little dog squeezing through the fence and running
off down the street.  Panicked and stark naked, she ran downstairs and out
into the street, but by then the only creature in sight was an early morning
jogger.  "Excuse me, sir," she called out, "but I've lost my dog.  Have you
seen my Titswiggle?"
  "No," panted the jogger, coming to a stop and pulling down his pants, "but
do you wanna see my bird do the hustle?"
