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

As of this writing only a few brave souls have posted to our new
Message Board    
Now remember, this board is intended for discussing previously
posted jokes, not flaming or posting new jokes. It could also be
a good forum for any humor related topics.

Recently, a good number of requests have been received for jokes
previously posted.  May I remind y'all that's one of the main
reasons we have an archive.  You don't even have to remember the
URL, I post it each and every day as a sig file after my jokes.

Complete Digests for 1997 and 1998 (to date) are always available
(normally the same day the Digests are sent out) at:
        www2.crosswinds.net/baltimore/~jimjr   (text files)
        www.geocities.com/BourbonStreet/6293   (zip files)

To verify current addresses, our server randomly selects
subscribers and sends an e-mail to verify the addresses.
Subscribers need take no action when such a message is received.

Errors returned from your Server to our ListServer may cause your
name to be dropped from the list.  If you feel, at any time, that
you have been dropped from the list, or have stopped receiving mail
from the ListServer, simply resubscribe.  You will not receive
duplicate mailings to the same address; if you're already
subscribed, the ListServer will verify that.

Message Board:

A Humor List rule has always been no discussion on the mailings.
This is as it should be.  People who subscribe to a joke list
expect jokes, not banter.  But as an alternate, a Message Board
is now available to ALL members (and guests) who wish to comment
on previously posted jokes or those who enjoy a forum format:
           www.InsideTheWeb.com/mbs.cgi/mb212137

It is NOT intended as a site to leave messages or questions for
the ListOwners, nor is it an alternate site to post jokes, but a
place for messages intended for the entire membership's viewing.

And now for a contribution of humor:

In the US, the days between Thanksgiving and Christmas are known
as the "Christmas Season".  That pretty much equates to shopping
for presents.  One Yuppette invited another to go shopping with
her, and the friend said, "I never shop until several days before.
After all, how do you know who your friends will be at Christmas."
