Spike, I can't tell if your post is tongue in cheek or not.
What I meant to say and may not have conveyed is that
multiple people have your name or Mike's name. I think
Mike had a Comp Sci Prof. in the U.K. and you had a
Jazz Musician as alter egos. (I didn't look at this
stuff closely). As a consequence one cannot do a simple
search on your name or Mike's and turn up unique reference
counts. Even Damien, as he relayed to me off-list, is
not immune to wanna-bes... Though you make a good point
that not many people would want to be *known* as
light-bulb-joke tellers...

But even in your most prolific I don't think you have 10,000+
light-bulb-changing jokes recorded on the net...

If you want to play with it go to the Google advanced search
page and enter your name under the match exact phrase box.
