University community.
Present mirth hath present laughter, wrote the poet, but on one of those occasional workdays where nothing seems worth smiling over, why not take a quick side trip to one of many comedy sites on the Web?

A good source for comic links is Comedy Central Online at, while Borderline Netzine, a comedy electronic magazine, can be found at

If it's anecdotes, jokes or a funny article you need to help brighten your day, turn to the Mother of All Humor Archives at

If laughter is the best medicine, these sites should provide a pharmacological cornucopia of mirth.
