I hate April Fool - Words in the Heroes' Tongue
I have a variable-sword. I urge calm.
I hate April Fool
Belated Happy Birthday to rocalisa

I hate April 1st. Nothing can be relied upon. People do too many stupid things the rest of the year for there to be any need to do them deliberately on one particular day.

This year the home-page and RSS feed of ‘Questionable Content’ has been replaced by ‘Dinosaur Comics’. This is not good. QC is approximately 237,000,000 times better than the extremely lame ‘Dinosaur Comics’ and I am not happy about this unacceptable substitution.

I want normal service to be resumed as soon as possible.

Today's QC is at http://www.xkcd.com . It was a regular easter egg hunt trying to find it...

Thank you! I can't do without my regular fix of QC.

Oh, thank you! Guess I'm more of a QC addict than I thought.

I totally agree!

just kidding

I once published a column on April 1st in which I announced my impending move to Florida, where I was going to work for a newspaper. Since everyone knows I hate winter, and I'd even researched a real paper in case anyone checked, I fooled *everyone*. Problem is, a lot of people missed the very last line, which was: "Also, April Fools."

People were making panicked calls to my ex-wife, questioning my kids at school ... when word got out, acquaintances would walk up to me on the street and punch me in the shoulder. It's the last April Fool's column I ever wrote.

Ahahaha! I, on the other hand, went to xkcd and was mortified to discover questionable content instead!

Clearly, we must now fight to the death.

Hm. No more coffee. Dear me no. *snicker*

Aww, the guy who does Dinosaur Comics is a good friend of my high school best friend. I met him at a birthday party once. He's very very tall!

And see, now you don't even believe me. Damn April Fool's Day.

Go for the Fools Day Boo!

Tell me about it!

Without going into too much detail...I had to swallow a rather hefty April-Joke! Knowing better I still fell for it!
Because for a split second I hoped against my better judgment the things i worked towards finally paid off...but...in the end it was a rather crushing Joke and laughing was the farthest thing from my mind!

You're right when you say that you can't rely on anyone.
I so hate this whole "crap" surrounding this day!
