Good Morning y'all, here I am again with this week's Traffic Report.
This is the Weekly Traffic Report that is sent to all of the HumorList
subscribers once a month.

First of all, as I told the contributors in last week's report, I must
apologize to one and all for the misleading message this month on the
e-mail address change-over.  An important paragraph was omitted which
reminded everyone that they need take no action, in-so-far as their
current subscriptions are concerned.  I regret the error.

Please remember though to stop using old addresses by the end of May.
You should NOT have to take any action at all to continue to receive
Humor either in mail or digest form either now or later.

Remember, errors returned from your Server to our ListServer may cause
your name to be dropped from the list.

If you feel, at any time, you have been dropped from the list, or have
stopped receiving mail from our ListServer, simply resubscribe. You will
not receive duplicate mailings to the same address; if you are already
subscribed, the ListServer will verify that.

To subscribe or re-subscribe:
Send an e-mail to: listserv@listserv.uga.edu
leave the subject area blank; in the BODY of the letter,
type: SUB HUMOR yourfirstname yourlastname

Send all commands to: listserv@listserv.uga.edu

Please cite source or copyright (if known) where applicable

Only substantial examples of verbal humor should be posted
Discussion, responses, and criticisms are not to be posted

And now for a contribution of humor:

With more divorces in the US than marriages, a neighbor asked me the
other day what was the secret to Mrs JimJr and I staying together so
long.  I told her, "Simple.  It's all a matter of compatibility --
we both love to fight."
