This column has been in existence since November of 2010 thanks to you--our readers, and of course, our hard working staff at the Queens Gazette.  It is my way of giving back to society and I am sure the staff here feels the same.  For those of you who have been following Internet in Bloom over the years, you are probably used to Internet resources being presented and reviewed of a more serious, yet altruistic nature, in part, because I love current events and believe the public does too.  Humor is also helpful, and often a stable in many stressful fields.  To that end I dedicate this column.

Moreover, the Net has all kinds of free access to humor.  However, much of it, to my surprise, is quite vulgar and "X" or adult rated humor.  I have heard experts state that this is primarily profit motivated as there is a guaranteed percentage of the population that supports and buys this type of content.  The majority of the following websites have clean jokes.  The only one that does not is www.laughfactory.com because on this site you have to select the correct link to read the inoffensive material.  Visit www.laughfactory.com/jokes and scroll down to the Clean Joke button.  Click on it to read their clean joke collection.

www.SYCMU.com stands for Stuff You Couldn't Make Up and includes funny pictures as well as clean jokes to enjoy.

www.CleanJoke.com has a large variety of clean jokes listed alphabetically by category.

www.FunnyCleanJokes.com has, as the URL name implies, clean jokes as well as a Joke of the Day.

www.GCFL.net in addition to clean jokes has a mailing list you may sign up for to have daily jokes emailed to you.

www.FunKidsJokes.com as the name implies is designed for young readers.

The Christian religion is one of the world's largest so you may wish to try www.Christian-Jokes.net keeping in mind that I am not endorsing nor attacking any sites listed.  Internet in Bloom is meant to introduce and review altruistic aspects of the Net to the reader.  I receive no compensation for this column.  Vigilance!  Questions or comments may be emailed to me at: AuthorNotary@gmail.com or to the staff here at the Queens Gazette.
