WELCOME TO THE 2013 ANNUAL TRAFFIC REPORT
Hi, everyone. This is Doug with the Annual Traffic Report for 2013 . Below the summary data for this year. I have included the corresponding data for last year, if it is available.
Two things of note in the statistics for 2013:
We had 2014 postings for the year 2013.
PBen posted ALMOST every day. Congratulations!
Other than that we had the expected decline in everything.
(This report updated with current information: December 2017)

SUBSCRIBING INSTRUCTIONS:

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 #1 in the Digest For 1/11/1998
http://archive.thehumorlist.us/Site1/Digests/H9801110.php#Joke1
From: Jim Moore Jr
Subject: Changing Times

I'm not so sure that evolution is indeed a valid theory. I mean think about it - if it were, wouldn't all blondes have grown handles by now?
- - - - -

Two young sexy singers were sipping stingers at Chasen's in Hollywood. "You remember that backless, frontless, sideless evening gown I wore to the awards last week?"
"Sure!" replied the other. "It was a sensation."
"Well ... I just found out it's a belt."
- - - - -

"May I be of some help Mr. Gates?" asked the impeccably attired, haughty salesman in the new car showroom.
"Yep," replied Bill. "My wife isn't feeling all that well.
What have you got in the way of a get-well car?"
- - - - -

Pity the two lil' Hollywood boys who couldn't even exchange their taunts the way boys do the world over.
"My Father can beat-up your Father," boasted one.
"You big silly," laughed the second slightly older boy. "Your Father IS my Father."
- - - - -

Watch out for one new expression in the Yuppie set. If you hear that someone is truly "electric", that means everything they own is charged.
- - - - -

Two Yuppettes met for lunch and were talking about a couple they both knew who had announced their plans to get remarried.
"It was just one of those divorces that didn't work out," said the one sadly.
