I don’t know how we’ve managed to get this far without them doing this already. There’s certainly been a crying need for this. Heck, its lack has kept me up nights*.
*No, wait, that was gas.
I suspect that this is going to be one of those epic April Fool’s Days. People are pretty wound up all the time, right now. Give ’em an excuse to cut loose, and, well…
So double-check everything. EVERYTHING.
…i never tire of that clip.
TRUST NOTHING published today. No, not even this: it could be a trap! …Well, if it is a trap it’s one being laid by my subconscious, because I myself can’t figure out how it would be any sort of a trap. But the principle, as they say, remains sound. Double-check all stories and then check them again.
I’m not really going to do anything for that, because: a) everybody else will; b) I can’t think of a good enough joke; and c) I’m on a mini-vacation anyway. Besides, I just got ten hours sleep and I’m too busy being fascinated by the aftermath. I have got to start going to bed earlier…
…to release it into the wilds, folks: it’s April Fool’s Day AND a Sunday. That means that everybody’s going to be credulous of too-good-to-be-true stories AND hampered in their ability to check them. This is a gift, people. Do it right, and you could have up 24 hours to put together an effective response squad to permanently handle the Thing That Your Guy Did That Involved A Llama.
