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 January, 2002.

Starting this month, I will slowly be changing the Contributions of Humor. I will not always make you work for the Contributions of Humor. I an extracting the jokes from the Digests and storing them on my computer. If I have the joke extracted, I will show it. If I do not have it extracted, 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.

This is a corrected Traffic Report. As far as I can determine, all the statistics are correct.

I have GOOD NEWS! Bill Edwards, the HumorList founder was checking an old computer and found Digests from the inception of the list back in April 1993 thru the end of 1995. There are some missing, but the site will have an almost complete archive as soon as I get everything out thre.

I am discontinuing the Contributor SpotLight after this month. With only around 30 people contrubting each month, I have gone through all the Contributors who are interested in being SpotLighted.

  • Mike is one of out newer Contrubutors. Here is information about
    him, in his own words.

    I'm an academic mercenary who, after years of ruthless training in
    the camps of Northern England, has travelled to any country willing
    to pay me to transform their youth into mathematics guerillas.
    Currently I'm training budding financial terrorists in the concrete
    jungles of Hong Kong. My students tell me that my name in Chinese
    means "white turnip"!

    What humor I do generate tends to come from the bottom of a bottle,
    the inside of Xmas crackers or I simply steal it from unsuspecting
    friends. Occasionally I can rely on the university administration to
    supply the occasional gem like asking those staff who have not
    received the memo to report 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. You will
    either see the joke below or 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.
    
    My contribution of Humor from the Archives:
    
    
    
    "Father, yesterday I made love to my wife"
    
    The priest explained that ther was nothing wrong with that.
    
    "but father, I did it with lust!"
    
    Again the priest reassured the man that it was no sin.
    
    "But father, it was in the middle of the day!"
    
    The priest was growing uncomfortable with the desciption but assuered him
    that it was a natural act for a man and wife.
    
    "But father, it was sheer passion. I followed her around the fridge and as
    she veaned over the deep freeze I jumped on her and we did it on the floor.
    am I banned from the church?"
    
    "Of course not," said the exasperated priest.
    
    "Oh that's good. The manger has banned both of us from the supermarket."
