I know it's here somewhere!

... 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 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...)
