Dear Readers,

I’m going to keep a notice here at the top of the screen to let folks know they should be sure and scroll down to the “Help our Host” post. I can’t figure out how to get WordPress to put a specific post at the top of the list, and I know better than to experiment with unfamiliar software.

The “Help our Host” post has turned into a very, very good collection of jokes. Lots of readers have provided input, and this seems like a good chance to both amuse our editor and have some fun at the same time. So, I’m announcing the

    First Unofficial, MCJ Worldwide Humor Roundup and
    Metaphysico-Theologo-Cosmolonigological Challenge
The rules are simple – keep your jokes in good taste, and avoid profanity. There will be four official categories:
1) Light-bulb jokes
2) Knock-Knock jokes
3) Puns
4) General Humor

Winners will be decided by Your Humble Substitute Editor, and will have their names enshrined on the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying “Beware of the Leopard.” They will also win a seat on the first MCJ Adventure Trip and Pilgrimage to Stonehenge, whose guide and spiritual deviser will be Rowan Williams, official Druid (seriously!) and former Archbishop of Canterbury. The details of the trip will be released as soon as funding is received from the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society of the Episcopal Church.

I think that Chris will get a kick out of the results of this contest; I know I’ve been delighted to see how many people have contributed, and the variety and quality of jokes has been great.
Keep it up!

Bill (not IB)
