As you well know, flaming is a part of the Internet. And sometimes it
can be done well, as we see below.

Usually your Internet Service Provider (ISP) provides you with a special
piece of magnetically senstitized tracing paper which you hold up to your

screen, and then rub over the area you wish to quote with a special
polarized stylus.

Then, rub the tracing paper onto carbon paper and plain paper: there are
the words you wish to quote! You may then type them into QuoteMaster II,
the special Internet Software which will analyze them for Usenet
Acceptability, and also store them for future use. Often it will
translate your words into Standard Usenet Compression: "me, too!" is the
most popular.

Please feel free to ask for help if you have further questions. Do also
look at the newsgroup news.newusers.announce.

About JokeTribe

These all are jokes that we've had the good fortune of having other people email to us or we've retrieved off the Internet. Over time, we've sent them on to the subscribers of our various jokes lists. Since we're talking some ten years of managing these emails lists, we've built up a pretty sizeable (and FUNNY) collection of jokes. They cover pretty much any category and topic that you can imagine; from clean jokes to dirty jokes and most everything in between, including the much loved lawyer jokes and the blonde jokes and the yo mama jokes as well as those redneck jokes. Remember, we did NOT author them, but we did take the time to convert the text files to html.

If you are certain of the authorship of any of these, email us the author's name along with relevant information on how we can verify that they truly are the author so we can give them the credit that they deserve.
