April Fools' Day

Any old topic will do, I suppose.

April Fools' Day

Postby Eyes High » Wed Apr 01, 2009 8:03 am

Watch out, beware of your fellow man/woman today. Today is the holiday of pranksters.

So how many of you would be willing to share some of the pranks that you have either gotten over on someone else or fallen for yourself.

Let us hear of the good ones as well as the lame ones.

One of the forums I visit has somehow made it so that every 4 post you click on gives you a message from the Canadians.

We warned that the day would come.

The day where we would no longer be the Canucks to the north.

The day where we would no longer be the other other state.

and now

when the time is right

Did anyone check the major papers to see if there was a corporate April Fool's this year? Probalby not because of the economy, but I remember fondly they year Taco Bell took out a full page spread to announce that they had purchased the Liberty Bell and were renaming it the Taco Liberty Bell. :lol:

Really? That's fantastic! :lol:
I deleted some of your posts because they were derailing the topic and not focusing on the issues asked, and instead going after the authors or their material. That's why. ~ BM

BMW did one over here, I'll try to find a link.

Look, I'm not much good at big speeches, and I know I haven't always been an easy guy to get on with, and I know, that given the choice, I wouldn't have chosen you as friends, but I just want to say, that over the years, I have come to regard you as people I met.

Nascar did one here. They said in an official press release that because of the auto industry bailout Chevys and Dodges could not be used in races any more. From what I hear, the rednecks came out in droves and were about ready to march on Washington before Nascar admitted the hoax. :lol:
