So, was the opening page of this site an April Fool's joke?

I thought subby was referring to the Mirror as a reputable news source.

San Serriffe, an island nation shaped like a semi-colon?  That's half-assed.  Probably has Comic Sands, too.

You look at the world today and think the human species is getting stupider then you see stuff like this and realize we have always been mind numbingly moronic.
 
lol spaghetti tree!

Taco Liberty Bell?

KROQ and Power 106 switching frequencies for the day?

Kevin Ware running out in the middle of Sportscenter going "Gotcha suckers!"?

The spaghetti one is always funny.  Now when I found out you could not really harvest  beer cans off the beer tree, I wept.

" In 1860 people throughout London received the following invitation: "Tower of London: Admit Bearer and Friend to view annual ceremony of Washing the White Lions on Sunday, April 1, 1860. Admittance only at White Gate." By noon a large crowd had gathered outside the tower. They were disappointed to find that lions hadn't been kept in the tower for centuries, let alone white lions."

That's a pretty retarded prank.

They can come watch me "wash my white lion" any day.

It was way before the invention of Comic Sans. It has Gill Sands, though.
I remember when it was published. It was a multi-page insert, with articles about the country, its political system, sports etc. Brilliant!

The Daily Mirror is read by people who think they run the country

List fails without "Plummet Mall" in Cincinnati... although they kept that one going for a year!

maybe if there was no such thing as a white gate and people were hunting all over the city looking for this place that didn't exist... maybe that would have been funny

I almost bought into the news of George Takai signing onto Star Wars VII... I was trying to decide if I would be outraged or if maybe it would be kinda cool..then realized it was April 1st. JJ was almost the biggest troll of all time. He did trek first...of course he signed on to sink the Star Wars ship from the inside..even as a fan of Star Wars...that would have been absolutely glorious to see.

This made me so happy for a few moments.  Although I did wonder why Takai said he'd be "starring" in the reboot.  Seemed like a small role.

The ampersands are comprised of circumflex, I'm sure. Annual run around them is called the long dask. National martial art is "back slash".

When I was maybe 6-7, my Mom cooked pancakes one morning (April 1st, but that hadn't sunk in at the time), and I just couldn't cut through them.  I saw there sawing with my fork for like 30 seconds, making no progress.  Turns out, she had put a piece of fabric in the pancake while cooking, and done it carefully enough that there was no outer sign of the trick.  Well played mom, well played.
 
When my brother was 16 my Dad drove his truck to the other side of the block and just waited for my bro to wake up and realize that his truck was "stolen".  Good times.
 
/From them I learned the importance of planning April Fool's jokes for first thing in the morning, because by lunchtime everyone is wise to the possibility.

A lady at work pranked her family one year by putting an ad in the paper listing thier house for sale. Of course, the open house was on April 1, laughs had by some, if not all...

One year I did an art project involving spray-painted horse shoes, nails and all. I moved them off the driveway and forgot about them, until my Dad came home. That's when I told him he'd just driven onto a bunch of horse shoes with his brand-new tires.

He was too relieved  to kill me.

Didn't anyone else notice the joke headline on the sidebar of the article?

Chris Brown: "I finally learned that beating a woman is wrong."
 
2013-04-01 02:37:33 PM  
Kind of surprised they didn't mention Sidd Finch.
 
2013-04-01 03:48:00 PM  
I was always partial to the Sports Illustrated George Plimpton article about the fireball pitching Mets rookie phenom in "The Curious Case of Sidd Finch."

I  see what you did in that headline, subby.  +1

That's it -- RUN WITH IT, you magnificent bastard! All the way to the Font of Youth.

Paul is dead.  That is the biggest April 1st prank but never gets mentioned.  To this day people think that the real Paul McCartney died and was replaced and there are hidden "clues" on many albums.  The verse "he blew his mind out in a car" was because Paul wrecked his car and his seatbelt wasn't fastened and he died of head injuries.  The radio special had a ton of fake clues, it was great.

Was a teenager when one 4/1 I told my mother I was pregnant.

She appreciates the humor of it now.

Woke up one morning to hear the great KFOG DJ Dave Morey announce that the San Francisco station had switched formats to ALL SHOW TUNES! And then, totally straight faced, he played nothing but for his morning show.

He was farkin' fantastic. MIss him, miss him.
