I love your postings - just found them today, so I am looking forward to actually using them.
I found a bit of a problem with the Funny Stories however. The recordings are all of The Present. Could you check this out and add the recording of The Skydiver and the Memory Problem?

Here is a ppt of many funny stories (you can print the ppt - File - Print Preview - Print to get handouts or see the Funny stories in the first post. These are excellent for listening or retelling...everyone likes a joke!
Hi, Mr. Ddeubel
They are very funny and interesting materials, but the audio materials for 'the skydriver'and Memory Problem' do not match with the writtem materials. Could you check them, please? Thank you.
Something else I noticed, Mr. Duebel... in the flash/I Spring presentation, the complete text for some of the stories is missing. This happens when the other guy is telling the story, and the text continues on for more than one page spread (you've got to copy a second page). It happens on First Class Blonde (though it was funnier when I couldn't read the punch line ahead of time), Mr. Vapors and the Whisperer, and Come for the Bull.
See the complete set of jokes / audio above and the materials.
Ellen - my mistake but I actually like it that some jokes don't have text at the end! Might be a way to do this in the future too - I like that method where students have to listen very carefully to the end. So I'm going to leave it for the moment. Sometimes a mistake is not a mistake :)
