I do not like April Fool’s Day. I find it dull. The only worse day of the year is “Speak Like a Pirate Day” — that I battle each year with “International Never Speak Like a Pirate Day” — because one idiocy deserves another.
On this year’s Big Brother 9 borefest, the houseguests were “scared” by masked marauders appearing behind the two-way windows as the April Fool’s joke from their keepers.
Shining a flashlight on the mask allows those on the other side of the mirror to “see into” the area behind the mirror — thus striking both fear and trembling in the bones of those seek to win $500,000 USD by vacationing in a house for three months.
Google’s attempts at playing the April Fool are always tedious and rarely funny.
This year you can use Google Docs to build a paper airplane. Please! I’m laughing so hard my fingers hurt! Stop! Stop the comedy already!
My favorite attempt at playing the April Fool actually happens every day in “The Pink Panther” cartoon.
I can’t get enough of the panther’s pink pranks — and I’m not fooling around today — that cartoon enlivens my day and makes me smile. I don’t need the date to read April 1 to get my daily dose of pesky, pink, prankishness:
If you decide to prank someone today — please be kind about it — because many April Fool’s jokes only tend a laugh one way: The pranker against the pranked — and that’s really no laughing matter.
