RSS icon Comments on Happy April Fool's Day


Today is the perfect day for many women to tell their man "yes, I've taken the birth control pill every single day as directed" with a clean conscience.

I guess I don't understand "straight" humor.

Hahaha, I soooo thought about telling my boyfriend I was pregnant today, but I figured a) he wouldn't believe me and b) it might be too soon for that kind of joke. Maybe next year.

Unwanted children are hilarious!

How are they unwanted if the pregnant person wanted them?

Too bad Seattle is so humorless. Wolf must be metally "challenged" and Shilo Urban has her panties in a wad.

@ Wolf & Shilo,

Every woman on the face of the planet must have, at one time or another, told their parents or boyfriend 'I'm pregnant' on April 1st. I did it to my Mom and Dad when I was teenager. The horror WAS hilarious. Too bad it only lasted a nanosecond.

Last year, I actually DID wait until April 2nd to take a pregnancy test (which my husband and I were hoping would be positive). I didn't want to deal with the April Fool's confusion.

@7 - when I was 15, my mom woke my dad up at about 5:30 by telling him I was pregnant. Without telling me. It was NOT COOL.

Holy shit! An ECB SLOG post that did not cause me to clean up the kitchen floor! I'm John McCain, I'm not pregnant, and I approve this message.

My pregnant friend pulled the best april fools today, posting on myspace that she gave birth last night (she's due next month) Everyone totally freaked. Awesome.

another good one is "i used to be a man," or " i used to be a woman." it's only a spit second, but it's priceless.
