Who the fuck are you?   You've been around a whopping 15 months.

Without a headline, the April Fools Joke aspect is completely lost.  There have been 3 since midnight last night.  That's hardly excessive.  When the mods wake up, they'll clean it up.  If they want to start an open thread to rein them in, so be it.

Edit: how did I not see the prior post. Oh well, don't think you're staying on my lawn just because he threw you off his!

Announced his engagement to his girlfriend of one year on Facebook. He showed the ring and everything! Only to later say April Fools! I told him that's like announcing a fake terminal illness on Facebook because marriage kills a small part of us everyday.

Good, harmless, and free April fools joke:

A few years ago I posted a fake craigslist ad for a Jeep Cherokee found some photos from another craigslist post. Put it a good $1000 off of Kelly blue book price and made it seem as if the miles were low but not suspiciously low. Put your friend/wife's phone number as the contact. They will get calls all day.

My friends were both avid fans, one of the Packers, the other the Bears. When the Bears went to the Super Bowl a few years ago, the Bears fan put a posting on craigslist saying he had 2 available tickets the day of the game for quite cheap, he said because he had an emergency and needed to get rid of the tickets fast. He put the Packers fan's phone number. His phone did not stop ringing for the entire day, non-stop.

Lighten up pal.  Lemme guess... you don't wear green on St. Patty's Day, don't like fireworks on the 4th of July, and don't get your Mom anything on Mother's Day, let alone buy some flowers on Secretary's Day.

If, however, this thread itself is an April Fools joke.... then well played, sir.

When I was waiting to hear from grad schools my boyfriend called my office (when i was out) and left a message as a Professor Lyon from Penn (My top choice) about a full-ride scholarship. Left a number with the right area code. I was so incredibly geeked. Told all my office friends and then tore into my office to call professor lyon back. Dialed the # and it was the main number for the Philly zoo.

Did not think it was terribly funny then. Still don't, not really, but ended up at a better school anyway (Michigan) and married a Michigan man. So happy ending blah blah
