Hosted by Jankath

This will be the last NYCM hosted by Jankath for a while...she has been swamped with work and personal matters and has asked to take a leave of absence. In the interim period, I (Cadeaux), will be filling in. Hopefully, in the near future, things will calm down enough where she can spend some time with us again. We want to express our sincere gratitude to her for hosting NYCM since HMO's inception and we wish her only the best.

I find that in-taller-able!! (Airfarcewon@aol.com)

The survey was conducted among a small group that consisted of jockeys unable to find work at the Hialeah Race track...and the members of the Miami Heat. (skibip@aol.com)

Great. Now I can look forward to "Spine enlargement that really works" spam. (laugh@starpower.net)

It is for this reason that the Wizard of Oz came in under budget. (iRonni@msn.com)

That would make Bill Gates approximately 100 feet tall. (Truckerex@wmconnect.com)

Upon hearing the report, Randy Newman, songwriter for the 80's hit, "Short People" is busy at work in the studio, recording the follow-up tune, "We Short, We Broke, We Mad"...due in stores, February 2004, the shortest month of the year. (soulsinger66@yahoo.com)

Is that why they say rich folks are "Uppity"? (Airfarceone@aol.com)

Oh great... next year's tax form will have new calculations based on height. Maybe that's what they mean by "higher tax bracket." (fparsons@yahoo.com)

That's why hookers wear high heels... so they can charge more. (fparsons@yahoo.com)
