The Humor List archives are being graciously hosted by Host995 Hi, everyone. This is Doug with the Annual Traffic Report for 2003 . Below the summary data for this year, I have included the corresponding data for last year, if it is available.

The UGA Humor List continues to have competition from many other lists and sites. In 2003 we had a slight decline in Postings, Subscribers and Contributors.

There was only a decline of 1 average posting per day. This doesn't seem like much, but it amounted to almost 100 fewer postings over the whole year.

The total amount on the Contributtors List was only 1 less than a year ago, but yet we had 1 fewer Contributor posting per month.

We CAN get the persons Contributing up. Let's see if more of you can become Contributors. All you have to do is send a message to listserv@listserv.uga.edu with GET HUMOR GUIDE in the body, fill out the questionaire with our rules and agree to abide by them, and you are a Contributor. Maybe if we get a few more contributing, we can get out average postings back up to the level they were in 2002.

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:
    From: Michael Forster
    Subject:Scratch & sniff (rude anatomical word)
    
    
    This from Lee Hurst:
    
    Some towns and cities in the UK decided to promote themselves by creating
    'scratch and sniff' cards.  When you scratched the card, it released a
    characteristic smell of the town.  Grimsby (a fishing town) produced a card
    that smelled of Herring.  Newcastle -on- Tyne produced a card that smelled of
    Newcastle Brown Ale.  Birmingham City Council didn't produce a card.  They
    just suggested that people stick a finger up their arse.
    
    Happy Christmas!
