    I fooled my brother.

    2 weeks ago I had my appendix and gall bladder taken out.
    I called him today and said I just got back from emerg. They took an X-ray and it turns out the surgeon left a sponge inside of me and I'm scheduled to go back under the knife on Tuesday.

    He totally bought it too.He said I should call my lawyer and they should write letters to everyone. I said "yeah, and the letter will open with APRIL FOOLS!"

    He thought it was a pretty good one.

    Micah, was April Fool's ever personally fun that you seem wistful about it? Or are you just longing for the return a public hoax-meister like P.T. Barnum?

    I guess it was never really fun for me, personally.

    Barnum put up a sign: THIS WAY TO THE EGRESS. Everyone walked down that short hall and pushed open the door... Only to find themselves outside, having to pay AGAIN to get back into the exhibit. Brilliant.

    I guess I'm nostalgic for stuff like that, nostalgic for stuff I never really knew.

    The only April Fool's stuff I ever experience these days is online. The entirety of www.homestarrunner.com was upside-down yesterday. And the obscenity filter on the forums at www.hcrealms.com filtered out the word "the" all day. It's still doing it this morning. That's pretty funny. A few of us have taken to using "el" to avoid confusion. Or possibly to add to it...

    My friend planned a 3-month long April Fools joke by saying he was moving to Connecticut (from Toronto). So Friday night, it was his going away party at the local bar. He gave his speech close to midnight thanking everyone for coming out and how much he'll miss everyone. He then looks at his watch and when he sees it's past midnight, he yells out "April Fools!".

    I fooled my wife. I came running into the house saying "Get the camcorder, there's a bear in our neighbor's yard!" She came running to the window and was looking for the bear that of course wasn't there.

    We live in a fairly populous area and while we have seen the odd deer on occasion, there probably haven't been bears around here for 300 years.

    Richard, is your brother a Seinfeld fan? If not you could have told him that the surgeons somehow left a Junior Mint inside you. [​IMG]

    I haven't been fooled in a while, I saw David's "review" on the list but I didn't go in. HA! Thought you could get me, huh? you'll have to get up pretty early in the mornin', David!

    (i'm kidding, I actually had no idea it was fake, I just don't care for The Fifth Element) [​IMG]

    I avoided all April fooling this year. I didn't even log onto the HTF, after the crushing April Fool joke posting a couple of years ago that totally suckered me: London After Midnight found and arriving on DVD.
