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, 2009.

I just noticed I am not getting a Top 15 Contributors report anymore. That is because THERE ARE NOT 15 CONTRIBUTORS CONTRIBUTING EACH MONTH. We Could use some more!.

If you have always thought you could send in jokes that are as good as or better than what you are getting, it is easy to become a contributor. Send an e-mail to: listserv@listserv.uga.edu leave the subject area blank; in the BODY of the letter, type: GET HUMOR GUIDE Then all you have to do is answer the questions in the Guide, send in to our ListOwner and Presto, you are a contributor. You only have to post once a month, but more than that is welcome.

And if you post every day, you get an * in our Top Contributors list.

I also noticed we hit another milestone this month. This is our 200th month that The Humor List has been in existence. That's 12 and 1/2 years! And Happy Holidays to all our subscribers and contributors.

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.
