Internet and Science Humour Page

I'm planning to collect here those odds and ends of humour that travel across the Net and across the Xerox machines of the world. Only the ones that I think are funny, of course :-) I'm sorry so few of these are properly attributed. Please write if you claim the authorship or know the author of one or more!
