Traffic Report For June 2012
If you have a complaint or comment regarding a post - send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org On any reports, the totals are for 'days submitted' and not for the actual number of jokes submitted. Submission dates are based upon Eastern Time. Although more than one joke may be submitted per day, for the 'Daily Submission' count, only one submission per day is countable for these totals.
First, let me say that a few of the comments in this particular Traffic Report are my own fellings, and not those of our esteemed Administrator, Sandy.
This month is a bit down from the last one, but we are still doing better than last couple years at this time. We even got a couple new contributors this month. Overall, we're still doing good.
My one complaint is political jokes. I was going to go on a big rant about them, but my opinion is that if they are anecdotes that the candidates said about themselves, they belong. If they are against the other candidates, they don't. I am just glad that this year, we seem to be mostly balanced between the 2 political parties. Also, people outside the US, don't give a darn about it. Enough of my rant.

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: David Burns Subject:Man at brothel, may be offensive to wifes A business man was out of town for the weekend, and went to the local brothel. He handed $500 top the madam, and asked for an evening with the fattest, ugliest girl she had. The madam assured him that for that much money, he could spend the evening with her best girl. But the man informed her, "I'm not horney, just homesick. ------------------------------= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = Doug Harter, Asst.
