Hi, everyone. I am a new to your news group and new to the Internet.

Over the next three weeks, I will be writting a paper with the general topic of
'E-Mail as a form of speech'. Any comments and/or suggestions for reading in
this area is appreciated. Responces by E-mail would be
appreciated. Thanks in advance.
George

Message 2: Not shaggy dog stories.

Subject: Not shaggy dog stories.

There is a class of jokes that consist of long stories whose
punch line is a saying containing a spoonerism--Don't hatchet
your counts before they chicken; Boyfoot bear with teak of Chan,
and so on. The class of jokes have several names. Some
people call them shaggy dog stories, but we think that that
name refers to any long, long story with a very poor punchline.
So what is the proper name for this kind of joke?
Please reply to me, and I will summarize for the list.
Many thanks,
