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 October, 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.

We did VERY good with number of jokes this month. We beat almost every other month on the summary. Keep up the good work.

  • Stan was 6th highest Contributor during the last 6 months and has
    usually placed in the Top 10. Here is information about him, in his
    own words.

    In real life I am a Pediatric Cardiologist and have practiced in
    Orange County, CA for the past 40 years. I have five children ranging
    in age from 40 to l5 and 4 grandchildren from 12 to 2.

    I have always enjoyed puns especially the groaners and finding a
    paucity of these jokes on the internet, I started posting some of my
    favorites about three years ago. This has blossomed into three joke
    lists I run "Plentiful Puns, Generous Groaners" "Puns of the Day"
    and "Shaggy Dog Stories"

    This year I was honored by being selected as the Punster of the Year
    2000 by the International Save The Pun Foundation. A more complete
    biography is posted at the Foundation web site

    If anyone is interested in being on the mailing list for any of my
    lists if they will write me at: I will give
    them details on how to join.

    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.
