Nick's G-Rated Humor List
Happy New Year!!
And thanks for being patient.
Nick's Humor List is now -- we hope -- back in business.
This is Nick himself writing. My Cyber-Guru Tim has been working hard to
make the "painless" transfer of Nick's Humor List to a new server (that's
cyber-babble for ... who knows?!!). In principle, we should observe no
differences (with the possible exception of a whole month's delay before
sending messages out!).
Anyhow, thanks, Tim!!

cruelty of sending pigs to a slaughterhouse in Bonn.
Suddenly the pigs, all two thousand of them, escaped
through a broken fence and stampeded, trampling the two
hapless protesters to death.
4. PROTECT YOUR SHORT-TERM MEMORY
Iraqi terrorist, Khay Rahnajet, didn't pay enough
postage on a letter bomb. It came back with "return to
sender" stamped on it. Forgetting it was the bomb, he
opened it and was blown to bits.
