until the dark realities of September 11, 2001 hit our world in the travel industry...
Now the Joe-kster (1) Enjoys quality lifestyle time with his family,
(especially with the grandchildren);

all most jokes joe-ks have to pass the 'Wifey' test...);

Joe-kster searching for the next great groaner joe-k!
... or researching the latest DUBM joe-ks...
A no-compromise guy - why settle for a Toupée when you can have a Threepée?
Send me the best of your clean groaner joe-ks, and if it's (1) unique to the site; and
(2) selected by the Joe-kster as being 'joe-ksworthy', we'll mention you in the
“Honourable Mention” page
(NB to all Americans re the 'u' in Honourable, eh!)
and send you a joe-ks.com pen (if you send us your address - all info kept confidential...);
If your suggestion is really good, you may also qualify for the “Get Stuffed” award...
(or you can send me lots of money - American please since our Canadian peso is pretty sick right now...)
(PS: Wifey would like suggestions about how to make money from this site, but
I'm having too much fun to think about my ROI or break-even point...)
