Over the years, I've received a lot of humorous material, either items I've found on the Internet myself or things that people sent to me over e-mail. I'm slowly putting the best items here.

Blue Ribbon Most of the stuff is rated G or PG; a few do have the potential to be offensive to some people, however. Please don't read something if you think it's going to upset you!

Important Note: none of these items are original. I simply take e-mail and reformat it in HTML. I strip out mail headers and extraneous forwarding characters, but I leave the author credits alone, where they exist. If there is no credit, I don't know the original source.

Non-computer related humor

These items should be funny to anyone, without any specific technical knowledge.
