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 December, 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 way up this month. Probably because the number of contributors is up too. Way to go everybody!

  • Jim Mica was our 10th top contributor in the last 4 months.. Here is
    information about him, in his own words.

    Jim Mica was delivered on a drab November morning four score and five
    years after Lincoln delivered his Gettysburg Address. As a youth Jim
    maintained a micawberish attitude toward life, but found his school
    chums had no idea what this meant. In search of understanding he
    stayed in school until he was well into a doctoral program. While
    preparing his dissertation, however, he found out that only 200
    others in the whole world shared his passion for mathematical
    sociology and only 1/3 of them were employed. So he quit. He now
    spends his time as the nose counter in the admission's office of an,
    otherwise, well-respected private college in upstate New York.

    Mr. Mica finds humor in current events, old joke books, e-mails from
    sympathetic friends and the recesses of his chaotic mind. He first
    joined the HUMOR list in 1993. Throughout 2000 he has been using
    "jiM Mica" as his sig and nobody has commented on it. Readers may be
    more familiar with the work that appears under his penname: John
    Emile Mills. His motto follows de la Bruyere or Walpole or Byron or
    some old Chinese proverb:

    Life is a tragedy for those who feel, but a comedy to those who
    think.

    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.
