   Hi, everyone!  This is Jim Moore Jr (the "other" Jim), with this
week's Traffic Report.  I took over the duties of traffic reporting
from Jim Goldman (jimphynn@MINDSPRING.COM) on November 9th. Jim, who
did such a fine job for so long is taking some time off from the task.

   Those of you who read the list regularly know I've been posting on
here for just over a year now, and I shall try to fill Jim Goldman's
shoes.  I have been sending this to the contributors' list weekly,
and once a month, the report is sent to the entire list.

   You are invited to become a contributor if you're not already.  All
you do is send LISTSERV@UGA.CC.UGA.EDU the command GET HUMOR GUIDE and
take the test at the end of it.  The rules are largely governed by
netiquette, and therefore protects the freedom of expression of our
contributors, as long as they don't become quarrelsome or unruly.

   One thing that concerns me about our HumorList is the steady decline
in readership over the past year.  I attribute it to the vast number of
humor mailings now available.  One fellow maintains a Web Page where he
lists over 200 choices.  I think our list is unique in that it is so
diversified globally, unlike most.  I have a suggestion for y'all.  If
you forward the list to others, why not ask them if they wouldn't rather
get it direct and have them sign up if they so choose.

   If you have any questions, please email me at jimjr@pipeline.com
Being new at this, I may have to obtain the answer to your question
myself, but please bear with me on that.  I'm here to prove that old
dogs can indeed learn new tricks.

And now for a contribution of humor:

  I think I may be onto what's with all Santa's "Ho...Ho...Ho" stuff.  See,
  y'all know about the lists he has showing who's naughty and who's nice.
  But, did y'all know he has a third list ?  Yep !  He knows which girls
  are good at being naughty.
