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 November, 2003.

I have Traffic Reports on the website now for all months except Aprill 1993. I also have Annual Traffic Reports for all years since the inception of the Humor List.

At the end of 2003, I will post to the list my first Annual Traffic Report and it will have observations about the statistics for this year. Stay tuned.

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:
    
    A guy stood over his tee shot for what seemed an eternity;
    looking up, looking down, measuring the distance, figuring
    the wind direction and speed.  He was driving his partner
    nuts. Finally his exasperated partner says, "What's taking
    so long? Hit the blasted ball!"
    
    The guy answers, "My wife is up there watching me from the
    clubhouse. I want to make this a perfect shot."
    
    "Forget it, man. You don't stand a snowball's chance in hell
    of hitting her from here!"

    Fakelation:  Phony enthusiasm shown for an inappropriate or unwanted gift.
    Sample usage:
    "Grandma's fakelation was obvious when she unwrapped the new
    javelin I bought for her.  Perhaps I should have gotten her the discus.
