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 May, 2002.

Effective with the February 2002 Traffic Report, I am stopping the Contributor's SpotLight. With only about 20 people contributing, I have run out of Contributors willing to be featured in the SpotLight. It is not worth keeping it for just new Contributors.

Three Contributors tied for Top Contributor this month. Each one contributed every day. This may be the first time this has ever happened. Congratulations to all of them.

The above also seems to have upped the average jokes for the day. We have been slowly creeping up the last couple months.

I should have finished moving all the old Digest to this site by this time next month. We then will have all the Digests from April 1993 thru the present on one site.

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:
    
    The census taker knocked on Miss Kimball's door.  She
    answered all his questions except one.  She refused to
    tell him her age.
    "But everyone tells their age to the census taker," he said.
    "Did Miss Maisy Hill, and Miss Daisy Hill tell you their ages?"
    "Certainly," said the cnsus man.
    "Well, I'm the same age as they are." she snapped.
    "As old as the Hills," he wrote on his form.

    After running up huge tabs all around town, Edna was
    signing the latest charge slip when her friend, Shirley,
    asked if she hadn't overdone it on the day's shopping
    spree.
    "Oh heaven's sake, no! My husband's worked hard
    all his life. I deserve it!"
                --------------------------------
    Q: What's the difference between a blonde and a computer?
    A: You only have to put information into a computer once.
                --------------------------------
    Q: What did the blonde think of the new computer?
    A: She didn't like it because she couldn't get
           the shopping channel.

    If you accidentally eat plastic fruit,
    do you throw up that wacky fake vomit?
