A friend was complaining about how the admin of another board had added a sticky message saying "Remember it's April 1st, not everything you see here today will be true". She was specifically complaining about how we don't need to be reminded of that, gawd.

Then she proceeded to tell me an e-mail she had just got about Domino's new delivery promotion, a box you can eat! :lol:



Totally fooled, she was suitably sheepish.

I guess Pizza Hut didn't want to miss out on the fun...

That Domino's crust-box looks tastier than the pizza.

Oh, wait. Domino's regular box is tastier than the pizza.

The Big One has gotten me but good this April Fool's. She's convinced an as-yet-to-be-counted number of my co-workers to shoot me with Nerf darts today. Best thing about this gag, I can't get her back until after the work day. Well played, well played and Daddy is proud of you.

It took me, seriously, no less than four readings before I figured out that they weren't hiring Zizek to counter ("head off") political spin about Tyson's series. Joke does not work when dummy misreads headline.

I would watch either one of those SO HARD, though.

Sometimes pranks like that just end up making me feel sad and betrayed.

The Raspberry Pi website has optimised its format today to give a 'handsome retro look and feel', with an 'elegant colour scheme'. But as I'm posting this at 23:30 UK time it may be gone in the next half-hour or so. :(

They have those bike bars over here, too. I've seen them in Traverse City and probably other tourist towns have them as well.
