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, 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.

As you can see below, I have a new web site. TonOfSpace is now the primary HTML site. Becuase JimJr's Crosswinds site deleted his files , I will be gradually moving my copies to Prohosting.

I am also working on archives from 1994 thru 1996. More on that next month.

Looks like contributions and subscribers are both up. Keep up the good work.

  • Tom is one of our infrequent Contributors. He had 6 contributions
    from June thru September 2001. Here is information about him, in his
    own words.

    I am a professor of psychology at the University of Wisconsin -
    Stevens Point. I am 57 and this is my 30th year on the faculty here.
    I have a Ph.D. in physiological psychology from the U. of South
    Dakota. But at heart, I'm just an old Missouri boy. I grew up in a
    town of 7000 people and can trace my sense of humor back to that
    small town life. My passion, though, is duplicate bridge.

    I share jokes with a lot of people and sometimes come across things
    that haven't been posted to the list; this is my primary source of
    contributions. I'm not overly fond of crude humor that depends on
    vulgarity, but I do like ethnic humor. Mostly I like humor with a
    surprising punch line or humor that comes out of real life (as
    opposed to just consturcted jokes) such as the mangled translations
    of wall signs in other countries. And having said that, I have to
    admit my two favorite jokes of all time have offensive words in them.
    I also love word play and do a lot of spoonerisms on purpose just for
    the fun of it.

    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.
