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 March, 2001.

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.

Our number of jokes per day is slowly creeping up. Let's try to continue the climb. Subscribers are still down from a few years ago, however. Each member try to bring in one new member in the next few months.

I sent out 7 invitations for Contributors to participate in the Spotlight today. The last batch I sent had no takers. Some of you Contributors take up my offer or I will have to drop the Spotlight for lack of interest.

I would like to hear from anyone who would like to volunteer for the Spotlight too. I will let you know what I need for info if you reply.

  • Jack Shea is usually in the Top 15 Contributors. Here is information
    about him, in his own words.

    My occupation is that of a Professional Magician, aka 'The Humor
    Wizard'.

    Having spent years as an uptight salesman, I attended the Humor
    Conference in Saratoga Springs, NY and it changed my life. I was also
    fired from my job two hours before the conference which turned out to
    be a favor.

    I perform regular magic and mentalism with a humorous twist so I can
    provide not only entertainment but a stress buster as well. Laughing
    is internal jogging. It's much easier to laugh than to shove your arm
    down your throat to massage your heart and lungs!

    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.
