Hi, everyone, this is Jim, with the Traffic Report for the HUMOR list.
Every week, I send this out to the contributors on HUMOR, and once a
month (on the first Sunday) I send it to the entire list.  In the past,
I have sent a lengthy email to the entire list, but beginning this
month, I will only give my comments (like this) the numbers, and a
quick joke.

  If you are reading these words, enjoy the humor that you regularly
read on this list, and would like the privilege of being allowed to
post, you need to take a short test that verifies you understand the
rules of the list, and have some kind of understanding with the way our
listserver works.  You can get this test, along with the rules of the
list and the listserver by sending an email to LISTSERV@UGA.CC.UGA.EDU
with the command GET HUMOR GUIDE     The command goes in the body of
the email.  It's a computer, so you don't need to say "please" and
"thank you."

  The guide, incidentally, is also on HUMOR's website.  The main page
for the website is at
(for those of you who do not spell the way we crazy Americans do,
please note the spelling of the word "humor.")  The guide is at    I would like to
announce a change that not very many people may have noticed because of
how simple it is, but every part of the website now has Java embedded
in it.  I am currently in the process of teaching this scripting
language to myself, and I have changed the part of the pages with the
"Last Updated on" from something I did manually to something the
computer will do for me.  If your browser doesn't support Java, nothing
will happen, and I have tried *very* hard to keep it from crashing your
computer.  :)

  And finally, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free
to email me at (please note that this is a
change from last month, as mindspring bought out interramp, my previous
provider...), or visit my own home page at

  I'll see y'all next month.  (Hey.  This is UGA, or the University of
Georgia, isn't it???)

And now a quick joke.

Subject: Remember 1996! <

  The United States Postal Service is known for putting out
"Commemorative Stamps" every year, to help us remember certain
individuals and events in recent history.  The U.S. Federal Reserve
Board is thinking of following suit, and their first set of
"Commemorative Treasury Bonds" will be dedicated to the Presidential
and Congressional campaigns of 1996.

  The Gingrich Bond will have no maturity.

  The Clinton Bond will have no principle.

  The Dole Bond will have no future.
