Global News has this up on the April Fools pranks.
One of the best April Fools jokes I’ve seen was back in the 1970s when streaking was quite popular at sporting/public events.
The newspaper of the town I grew up in featured a front-page story of a marathon race. They went to the trouble of taking pictures of signs they created to make it appear on the up-and-up.
The story went that the runners were going to “streak” …and since guys were wearing their hair long in those days (ooh lala), the paper quipped, “The girls will wear pink hats and the guys will wear blue hats so you can tell them apart.” It when on to say there would be prizes awarded, etc.
In the end, the joke is revealed. Clever.
We’re bracing for the fierce winter storm here–predictions of getting 8 inches of snow.
Calvin and Hobbes’ snow sharks popped into my head. Funny.
Here’s a site of someone re-creating them. Not bad, but some are a little graphic.
Here’s an amusing post by Fred Klonsky on all things clafouti. Haha.
Diane Ravitch posted a link to this hilarious video of cats overtaking dogs’ beds. I was laughing so hard I had tears streaming down my face. The dogs dragging the cats all over was priceless.
I loved that the dogs tried non-violent means as a solution. Leave to the humans to encourage them to fight….<sigh>
Animals have more sense than the humans…
Why not get the cats a bed like the dogs? Or, as one portion showed, a bed big enough for both of them to share?
The Onion has had a go at Chicago and their website. You know it’s written by a young one that mentions only “Hard to Say I’m Sorry” and “You’re the Inspiration” …probably hasn’t heard “25 or 6 to 4” or “Make Me Smile” or my favorite “Dialogue, Parts 1 and 2″….or any of the other great songs that never made it to the radio.
A NYC subway was shut down when kittens were reported under the third rail.
In the you-can’t-make-this-stuff-up file…$180 for bird poop facials...?
JUST A WARNING THAT THIS IS REALLY REALLY GROSS AND DISTURBING. IF YOU’RE QUEASY OR EATING, I WOULDN’T RECOMMEND READING IT–
So, I guess there is a drink called a Sourtoe Cocktail which involves drinking with a human toe. Oh.My.God. the picture alone is enough to make you want to toss your waffles…ick
…and then the more disturbing aspect of this is….where did they get that toe? Grave Robbers? Unethical Funeral Home Directors? Well, the folks in the comments section say they are donated….um-hmmm..
