Haha! Pinch You So Hard There’s a Bruise Day!

April Fools’ Day has been a major internet holiday for many, many decades now. This particular one was no exception, though it was exceptionally lame. Google’s Gmail offered a false new feature allowing you to set your email’s time of delivery. Uh. April Fools? I thought it was a great feature not because of their intended punchline (closer reading showed that it was powered by an “eflux capacitor” and intended to only insert an email into the past) – postdating blog posts has been a staple for years now, why not email? Blerg, I’m cranky.

Another large entertainment website had the headline of “Paris Hilton and Benji Madden Get Married!” Again? Wait, which celebrity got hitched and then got it annulled? Double-wait, didn’t Nicky Hilton also do that? Oh my god, I wasted precious finger skin on this. Oh yeah, my point: that’s your April Fools’ joke?

The “big” one was that Google and Virgin (with a big hardy-har tip off of naming themselves “Virgle”) are teaming up to send people to Mars. And that, friends, is just fucking mean. “Hey, we’re gonna cure cancer! JUST KIDDING!”

But! Just in time Quagmire spotted this gem, which might still be available here:

    I thought of you when I saw the Virgle thing. I didn’t even say anything about it because I knew you’d be as poopy about it as I was.
    Like har har, so fucking *sniffle* funny you guys.

    Haha! I want a HamFan! So cute!
    My April Fools’ was spent putting makeup on (mostly) grown men. See, there’s a competition in Mountain School every year among the rookies; they must dress in drag and then strip. I was happy to make them all look like drag queens, and they were happy to not put on their own makeup. The performances this year were top notch.
