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 April, 2003.

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.

Since I was late last month, I'm going to be early this month.

It is getting to be close to the end of the college school year. Those of you at college might want to consider sending the following to listserv@listserv.uga.edu: SET HUMOR NOMAIL before you leave college.

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:
    
                       Wrong number can prove costly.
    
    
    ABILENE -- When two prostitutes attempted to return a call to a potential
    customer,they got a wrong number that landed them in jail. Taylor County
    deputies said the women mistakenly paged a narcotics agent last Wednesday
    afternoon. "They were one digit off, and they got the policeman instead
    of the john that they were looking to make some money from," sheriff's Sgt. Earl
    Donnell told the Abilene Reporter-News.
    
    
    When the agent, who didn't recognize the number on his pager, returned the
    call he quickly realized the woman on the phone wanted to talk a little
    "dirty business." He said she told him that he and a friend could have two
    sexual acts performed for the bargain price of $40 apiece "The sky's the
    limit is what they told me," the agent said. "It went a little further, and
    I told her I'd call her back." The agent set up taping equipment. Then,
    after picking up the women at a motel agents revealed their identity and
    arrested them. Said Donnell, "Just the look on their faces was a sight to
    behold when they realized they had paged a police officer."
