Happy april fools day.
Best one I heard today was Sami Lucas, well-known TV and radio personality, had had nude photos of her posted online, so she decided to take charge of the situation and had them published on the station's web site, called her father and admitted to him in tears what had happened... listeners were calling in and offering her support and saying they'd seen the photos on the site, and that she had nothing to be worried about, female body is a beautiful thing, etc... and it was all a big pile of bulldust, someone called up and congratulated them about halfway through the morning.
Yes, there are photos... of Sami Lucas topless... when she was like 2.
So far, 2 success, 1 fail, and 1 backfired on me, but the day's young
what no Care Bears, or Transmorphers?! What's going on here?
April fools tips for those who deal with gormless computer users -
- If you still have ball mice, replace with a broken one filled with sawdust or holepunch leftovers.
- Alternately, glue it to a mousemat.
- If you know somebody who can't touchtype, rearrange the letters of thier user name on the keyboard.
- Use netsend or something similar to send strange messages.
- Alternately, paste a screenshot of a dialogue or window onto thier wallpaper so they think that its actually there and won't go away. Fake error messages or embarasing websites recommended.
What the-!? No April Fool's Joke? No Fuzzy World 2005? No Transmorphers?
The fuzzy world's back, just at the bottom of the index.
So far, I've ruined three group graduation photos, scared the shit out of one of my classmates and there's still a period left to go before the April fools stops here.
My coworkers put all my Transformers, GI Joes, and Halo 3 figures in a cabinet in my cubicle that locks, then hid the key.
They let me scour my file cabinet for twenty minutes, trying to find the key that I usually keep in there. Turns out, I left the key in the cabinet. Then they hid said key under my mousepad. And laughed as I scoured. After I got done exploiting my knowledge of foreign swearwords (I can swear in Spanish, Japanese, Chinese, and German, but only ask for basic needs in Spanish...), they finally pointed it out to me.
Then I logged onto TFW2005 expecting some elaborate prank...and was promptly disappointed.
no prank. or is there? we shall see.
So how long is the Fuzzy gonna be around? I'm afraid to browse it at work but when I get home all bets are off!
Edit: As for pranks, so far the only one I been involved in is where another admin at the MMORPG guild forum I run redecorated our board with a "Mr Saturn" theme
...still don't know what the hell it's supposed to be though
I've gotten three people to press shift-ctrl-printscreen.
It's fun for everyone!
A whole wheel of cheese you say?
One of my favorite April Fool's Day jokes was inspired by a nice little comment Mike Nelson made on an episode of MST3K. I gave someone what they thought was apple juice ended up being some delicious hot dog water I have been accumulating.
Another time I made similar use of greasy fat chips that float on the surface of soup when it has been sitting in the fridge long enough.
The joke is that all the precious post counts people are racking up in the Fuzzy will be gone come tomorrow.
I didnt think you could up your post counts in the fuzzy. Wasn't that always the case?
My only joke, and I did it a couple hours early. Some people reacted a little upset about it though:
The joke was then copied by Burn/Dilborg to Seibertron:
Some people take things too seriously, I tells ya.
Well, Between the Staples has been taken over by Skrulls today. 4 color rebellion is now 3 color rebellion. Bonecrusher's Blog of Hatred is now Frenzy's Blog of Awesome. Gmail is advertising a new feature, Gmail Custom Time, allowing users to backdate e-mails. Google is also announcing the launch of Virgle, a team effort between Virgin and Google to colonize Mars.
Oh, that was bad idea. Fake death notices are nothing to laugh at, and should not be used as a practical gag by anyone who is not a Beatle.
bob and Tom disappointed me by not doing the "Catch it you keep it" gag they used to do every year. Basically since it is radio and the "theater of the mind" they pretend they work in a huge tall building. It may be 2-3 stories at most. They claimed it was 88 or so. But they would claim to go up on the roof and drop objects like a big screen TV, etc off and if someone caught it, they got to keep it. Well I guess they got in trouble one year because they claimed to be dropping a box turtle and it hit the ground. In reality it was a hard hat. And they drop stuff off the loading dock. Very funny stuff to picture this stuff happening. But I guess humorless dicks at PETA or something got their panties in a wad and complained.
