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 December, 2013.

If you have a complaint or comment regarding a post - send it to: comments@thehumorlist.com 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.

We are starting a new year, 2014. Things are still going well with The Humor List. I hope we have another good year,

    Welcome our new Contributors or old Contributors with new Email addresses:

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:
    • This joke is joke # 7 in the Digest For 7/30/2003
    • The title of the Joke is: Top 10 Management Styles
    From: Bill Stebbins
    Subject:Top 10 Management Styles
    
    
    1) MANAGING BY WALKING FASTER THAN THE EMPLOYEES
    These kind of managers you will always see in the corridor, ten
    steps away. "We'll have to talk" you can hear them say, just as
    they have disappeared around the corner.
    
    2) MANAGING BY DELEGATION TO THE SECRETARY
    These managers just delegate everything to the secretary. If he
    is good, she knows what she must do.
    
    3) MANAGING BY KNOWING NOTHING
    These managers don't really know anything at all. They let YOU
    give answers. Meanwhile they fill the time with nice anecdotes of
    irrelevant cases.
    
    4) MANAGING BY HIDING INFORMATION
    Information hiders are aware of the market value of strictly
    secret kept information. You must be very thankful to get any
    information at all.
    
    5) MANAGING BY DOING EXACTLY WHAT THE BOSS SAYS
    These managers prevent their bosses from creative thinking. Else
    they got more work to do.
    
    6) MANAGING BY SMILING AND WEARING NICE SUITS
    If you drink beer with them, lunch with them, smile to them and
    also wear nice suits, nothing can stop your career anymore.
    
    7) MANAGING BY CREATING VAGUE OVERHEAD SHEETS
    Do you know them? Those sheets with some big arrows, boxes or
    circles?  These sheets provide the ultimate proof of their overall
    brilliance.
    
    8) MANAGING BY OPEN DOOR AND EMPTY ROOM
    This is a major improvement of the older 'OPEN DOOR' management
    style.  Now you can really walk in and out anytime you want.
    Nobody ever knows where these managers are.
    
    9) MANAGING BY USING BUZZ WORDS
    These managers like to bluff your head off with hip, nearly
    undefined, terms.
    
    10) MANAGING BY BELIEVING
    These managers must be spiritual educated, because they have no
    clues at all.
