The Fooliest of Days

posted by on April 1 at 8:20 AM


The Agence France Presse has a roundup of April Fool’s Day media hoaxes from around the globe, from flying penguins to stretched French presidents.

Meanwhile, the video below is completely real. (Thank you, Auschglitz.)

So what about Feit? Is it just a clever way to trick us by posting before the 1st?

I like the Google Time one on the Gmail page. That would be useful...

Also, Paolo Maldini going to Newcastle. But that's a bit specialist.

Seems like there are plenty of things to make fun of in this world without having to resort to some senior class choir performance.

These kids worked hard on that act, no doubt. They have mothers and fathers too, you know.

Fuck, I hate Newcastle.

BTW, you guys get this acronym wrong all the time -- AFP is Agence France Presse, the French wire service. It is not "the Associated Foreign Press," which does not exist.

"Awesome" did that routine at their last show - Kirk, David & John looked especially fetching in the green dresses.

I've already been the victim of an April Fool's prank today - co-worker comes up to me all excited and says "Did you hear? Hillary Clinton dropped out of the race!" Took me a minute to put 2 and 2 together...

...that was really cruel.

There's going to be a mob performance of the Thriller video @ 3pm at Pike Place Market.

Oh sweet weepin' JAY-zus, that was the longest 3:50 I've ever watched. Actually, I fast-forwarded. Twice.
