An old email humor list I ran called “Randy’s Random” got turned into a web site, Jumbo Joke, way back in 2004.
Short Version: It’s Gone
Longer Version: In October 2015, I announced I was going to sell it — by auctioning the site off with several other domains and sites. I repeated this announcement several times through the end of the year so that readers with interest in bidding in the auctions could do so.
The auction went live in January, and sold to a reader. Since the reader, a military medic, was deployed overseas, I continued to operate the site for several months. Once he got word he was coming home in June, I announced that I would stop making posts in June. I finished with a repeat of one of my own favorite (and very early) true stories, Foomp!
I had hoped the site would be relaunched with a new design, and follow its 12-year tradition of publishing well-edited, high quality humor.
Alas, it seems like the buyer is too busy to get it going again, and it has gone offline completely. Will it come back? No idea.
In January 2017, as announced in a later post, I resurrected Randy’s Random — not as an email joke list, but as a “thought-provoking & entertaining memes” site.
