WELCOME TO THE 2008 ANNUAL TRAFFIC REPORT
Hi, everyone. This is Doug with the Annual Traffic Report for 2008 . Below the summary data for this year. I have included the corresponding data for last year, if it is available.

Sandy (AKA MsSam) set a record this year. She had submitted 803 days in a row, from December 7, 2005 to February 17, 2008. She was only stopped by a problem with her computer.

Other than that, there were no milestones on the list this year. There are still regular contributors and a good many subscribers. Here's looking forward to a good year.
(This report updated with current information: December 2017)

SUBSCRIBING INSTRUCTIONS:
1) http://thehumorlist.us/subscribe.htm

2) The one-time subscriber fee is now $14.95 for one email address or $19.95 for two email addresses.

3) After payment through PayPal, you will be directed back to the Humor List website. Because PayPal and SimpleLists are not directly connected, there is a second step that must be completed. Please continue by adding your subscription information to the SimpleLists form.

4) One of the factors in deciding to allow SimpleLists to become our new mailing list service was their strict anti-spamming policy. After completing the SimpleLists form, you will be sent a "Request to join mailing list thehumorlist@simplelists.com" email with a confirmation link. Be sure to confirm your email address. If a subscriber has not "confirmed" their email address - SimpleLists will not allow us to include their email address for daily mailings.

DOUG'S TRADITIONAL HUMOR CONTRIBUTION
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. This is my contribution of Humor from the Archives:

This joke is joke #4 in the Digest For 4/27/2005
http://archive.thehumorlist.us/Site1/Digests/H0504270.php#Joke4
From: Marianne E Rantz
Subject: Quote of the Day <strong language>

"Eighteen-year-old kid, head shaved, both ears pierced, both nostrils pierced, both eyebrows pierced, tattoos coming out of the arms. He's got baggy pants that start at the knees, and twenty-seven inches of underwear. What's that about? That's one of the basic rules we know about -- the underwear goes inside the pants! That's why it's called under-fucking-wear." - Denis Leary
