Oh, By The Way, The Previous Five Posts Were April Fools Jokes

For those who didn't take the time to click through to the "read complete story" links, the previous five posts were April Fools gags. None of the events depicted actually took place.

Long time readers are aware that we've been posting April fools gags every year since April 2005. Sometimes April's Fools Day gags are great, sometimes, like last year, things get weird.

With people powered media becoming increasingly more important, and sites like ours attracting larger and larger audiences the 'people who don't get the joke' margin for error is increasing exponentially, which pretty much defeats the purpose of a laughs and giggles in the name of levity.

As a result, we decided in advance that this year would be the final year we're going to be posting somewhat far fetched nonsense. It was fun, but now its time to move on to bigger and better things.

For those who love the annual April Fools stuff, we apologize. For those who think it's stupid and we shouldn't do it, we agree with you.

Sayonara AFD, it was fun while it lasted!



Comments & Discussion:

I thought the April Fools were priceless. It is sad that there are those among us whose powers of deduction are weaker than my cat's and could not grasp the obvious absurdity meant only for entertainment. Ah well, it is usually the few who ruin it for the many.

I totally fell for all five items. But I enjoyed falling for them, they were all entertaining.

It did seem a bit odd that a chandelier falling on guests at the Bellagio did not receive more breathless newscaster coverage, lol.

I'm only sad that I wasn't around on AFD to help Chuck and the rest of you destroy the people in the world with absolutely no sense of HAHA, and the bruising from the "Belagio Incident" has finally gone away...... on the brighter side on April 2nd I did get to have beers with Chuck, this is something everyone should do at least once in their lives, ya wanna talk about scarring!

Please tell me this is some twisted AFD joke in itself right?

Look on the brightside, we could have gotten rickrolled.........
