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.

Remember, if you missed or  deleted a Digest, they're
available (normally the same day the Digests are sent out) at:
    http://www2.crosswinds.net/baltimore/~jimjr   (text files)
    http://www.geocities.com/BourbonStreet/6293   (zip files)
The complete 1996 Digests for Jan-May are there now.  All of
the 1997 and 1998 Digests have been there for some time. The
1999 Digests are posted there daily.

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 may cause your name to be dropped
from the list or set to "no mail".  If you have stopped receiving
mail from the ListServer, verify your settings with "query humor"
(see above) or re-subscribe.  You won't receive duplicate mailings
to the same address; if you are subscribed, it will be verified.

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:
           http://www.InsideTheWeb.com/mbs.cgi/mb212137

UGA Club:
Assuming enough people participate, this could be a fun activity
for all members.  Yahoo has provided space for "clubs".  The page
includes a message board, list of contacts, photo section, chat,
and a calendar. You must join Yahoo Clubs to use the service:
           http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/ugahumorlist

Neither site is intended as a place to leave messages or questions
for the ListOwners; nor are they an alternate site to post jokes,
but places for messages intended for the entire membership. Both
sites provide free publicity and exposure for our List.

And now for a contribution of humor:

   At their weekly Staff Meeting, the MicroSoft VP in charge of
sales announced: "We're now selling a product every three minutes."
   "That's not enough." said Bill.
   The VP somewhat astonished at the boss' remark after presenting
what he thought was a glowing report asked what was expected.
   Bill calmly replied, "It was once said that there's a sucker
born every minute.  Your job is to simply locate them."
