Hi, everyone, this is Doug, with this month's traffic report. Once a month, during the first part of the month, I send the report to the entire HUMOR list. Welcome to the month of August, 2000.

I am going to make you work for the Contributions of Humor. The jokes themselves will not be shown, only the link. Follow the link if you want to see what the joke is. For more information on this, see the Contribution of Humor section.

The number of jokes is up again. Good show!!! We have a few new contributors also. Some new blood!!! Yum.

  • Hi.... My name is Paul Benoit (PBen), and I'm from Massachusetts. I
    am an Electro/Mech Cad Designer, which means I make
    drawings/documentation of what is involved in building
    computers/computerized machinery. I'm married (25 years in July!)
    with 2 daughters, both in college as of this fall.

    If you've seen my jokes in UGA, then you know I get them from many
    places.... I try to attach credit to the jokelists/websites I've
    stolen material from when posting to UGA, unless I see it in more
    than one place. My "Old Perfesser" jokes are basically just rewrites
    of the good stuff I find, and are dedicated to Lee (T.O.P.), the
    first friend I made by sending material to this list.

    My main hobby is Fife and Drum music. I've played the fife for over
    35 years, and have recorded several times. My military service
    ('70-'73) was spent playing in the Old Guard F&D Corps:
    http://www.mdw.army.mil/fdc/

    Another F&D Corps I'm a (part-time) member of, and recorded with:
    http://www.ancientmarinersct.com/

    My hometown F&D Corps has produced 4 recordings so far (working on
    5th), but we haven't gotten our website completely done yet.

    And finally, the one feature which has been featured in all
    Traffic Reports, the contribution of Humor. Since, I am not a
    real regular contributor, I will not be providing new Humor.
    Instead, I will provide a joke from the archives. It will be at
    least 14 months old, so most of you won't remember it. I
    will only provide a link to the joke, not the actual joke, although I
    will provide the Subject line (Topic). Since there are now HTML
    versions of all Digests, it will point to the joke itself.
