Hi, everyone!  This is Jim, with this week's traffic report.  Every week,
I send this report, complete with some witty or pithy remarks, to the
contributors to the HUMOR list, and on the first full week of each month,
I send the report to the entire list.

Ahh, the month of May.  When students go home from college, when the
number of posts to the HUMOR list starts to drop off, and when my mom
starts nagging me about why I haven't settled down with a nice girl yet.
(Someday, ma, I promise!)

I guess it's only right for me to address how, if you're going home,
going to teach your native language in some strange and foreign land, or
running around the world trying to find the love of your life, to keep
HUMOR from piling up in your mailbox.  You have two options:  you can
unsubscribe altogether by sending LISTSERV@UGA.CC.UGA.EDU the command
SIGNOFF HUMOR and resubscribe when you get back with the command SUBSCRIBE
HUMOR followed by your real name.  Or you can send the command SET HUMOR
NOMAIL and when you come back, use the command SET HUMOR MAIL (or SET HUMOR
DIGEST, if you prefer to get it in handy-dandy once-daily digest format...)
If you will be losing your email, I suggest unsubscribing and
resubscribing.  (For those of you with the privilege of contributing, put a
-P after the word HUMOR (without a space) in these commands.  This will
work for any except the subscribe command.  If you signoff, you'll need to
take the exam again when you come back...)  All commands go in the body of
an email.

As always, I'm here for you.  Feel free to email me at, visit my home page (wanna see my etchings?) at, or visit HUMOR's website at  I'll be back with you all
next month...

And now for my usual contribution of humor:
Subject:  The geographic center of the United States

Excerpted from the book _Dumb, Dumber, Dumbest,_ (c) 1996 by John J Kohut
and Roland Sweet

Members of the Atlanta city council approved a resolution inviting
Bucharest, Hungary, to become one of its sister cities.  Unfortunately,
Bucharest is the capital of Romania.
 [That is, unfortunate for those in Atlanta, not in Romania...]
