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 September, 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.

Congratulations to Sandy. This is the first time she has topped the Contributor's List.

The number of jokes was down a bit during September, but I expected that because of the events here in the US. However, both the number of contibutors and number of subscribers was up slightly.

The site I keep my HTML versions on has gone pay. I am going to have to look for another site to keep them. If anyone can suggest a good one, let me know. I need 50Megs at least.

  • Here is information about him, in his own words.

    Lee Bradley has been a contributor to HUMOR since the first year of
    operation of the list but has slowed the pace of his contributions
    since his official retirement three years ago. A retired French
    professor who has returned to w-rk as editor of the Valdosta State
    University graduate and undergraduate catalogs, Bradley is better
    known, alas, as The Old Perfesser of those low-hitting, off-key,
    "almost funny" "jokes" contributed by his Best e-Buddy in the Whole
    World, Paul Benoit, aka PBen.

    Bradley gets his humor wherever he can, usually stealing it from his
    national and international network of friends, without attribution,
    since they probably stole it already from someone else. Bradley is
    the only person to have e-mailed a pleasantly worded correction to
    Georgia Public Radio and gotten the response, "Lee, Bite Me!"

    In 1996, Lee was knighted by the government of France and named a
    chevalier in the Order of the Academic Palms. He is also a bronze
    life master in the American Contract Bridge League.

    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.
