Hah! It’s the April Fool’s Day Open Thread, two days late! What a joke, right?
So, on Tuesday last, a lot of people in the U.S. were either the perpetrators or recipients of hopefully harmless pranks and jokes to each other. Google added Pokemon to Maps, Craig Ferguson and Drew Carrey switched shows, and many other bits went out over the wires.
Myself, I managed to avoid being pranked, but I think that was due to my explicitly stating that I can be a right cranky obscenity when I get pranked, due to bad experiences with pranks in my past involving cruel children. Perhaps because of that, I don’t see the humor in April Fool’s Day.
If it were something more like Topsy-Turvey Day, where the lowest gain power for a day and he most powerful are stripped of it, I think I could get behind it more.
What about you? Any particularly good gags you received or perpetrated? Are you over here with me in the cranky corner? Woukd you prefer to have a day where the janitor runs the company?
And as always, open threads are unconstrained by topic or prompt. They can be all things to all people, whenever you need them to be.
