No one is immune to the end-of-summer,  back-to-school blues. Nor is anyone I know immune to cornball jokes. Whether you're 12 years old or 32 years old, the arrival of Labour Day Weekend usually signals the end to carefree sunny days and a return to the more serious stuff of life. I'm no different. I was whinging to a fellow travel writer earlier this week that the shortening of days means we could all use two things: (a) a good dose of natural vitamin D (oh, farewell summer sun);  and (b) a good dose of humour.  She responded with this corny joke:  "Have you ever experienced that feeling of deja moo? The feeling that you've heard this bull before."  Yuckah, yuckah. BadoomBang. I guffawed.  She snorted with laughter. For some reason, travel (and travel writers) seem to spawn an inordinate number of corny travel jokes. laughter
