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 #7 in the Digest For 1/9/1999
http://archive.thehumorlist.us/Site1/Digests/H9901090.php#Joke7
From: Terry Galan
Subject: Camel-ot (mature)

A Captain in the Foreign Legion was transferred to a desert outpost. On his orientation tour, he noticed a very old, seedy-looking camel tethered out in back of the enlisted men's barracks. He asked the Sergeant leading the tour, "What's the camel for?"

The Sergeant replied, "Well, sir, it's a long way from anywhere and the men have natural sexual urges, so when they do, uh, well, we have the camel."

The Captain said, "Well, if it's good for morale, then I guess it's all right with me."

After he had been at the outpost for about 6 months, the Captain couldn't stand it any longer, so he told his Sergeant, "BRING IN THE CAMEL!!!"

The Sergeant shrugged his shoulders and led the camel into the Captain's quarters. The Captain got a footstool and proceeded to have vigorous sex with the camel. As he stepped, satisfied, down from the stool and was buttoning his pants, he asked the Sergeant, "Is that how the enlisted men do it?"

The Sergeant replied, "Well, sir, they usually just use it to ride into town."
