PostSubject: April Fool's Prank Doesn't Go Over Well With All   Fri Apr 02 2010, 13:06

Okay, so everyone's familiar with April Fool's. And generally speaking, MOST people don't take it too seriously when their leg gets pulled. How about if you read an article and all day you think something's happened or is happening just because you didn't click the embedded links that give away the joke, especially at the end?

By and large, my prank was accepted, and thought of as clever. If you don't have a sense of humor, then that's ashame, but everyone's different. So to start things off, the link of what I wrote for an April Fool's prank.

http://catcrave.com/2010/04/01/reed-beyond-the-line-panthers-working-out-a-deal-with-veteran-receiver/

After that, here's the one I wrote last night, to give the masses their "April Fool's" alert. But be sure to read the other link before this one.

At this time, my writings have been banned from PanthersInsider.com an affiliate with Scout.com, because apparently the moderators there lack any sense of humor.

I am weary of any news that comes out on April 1, and anything that goes out of its way to point out the day especially so.

That's a great one because it is so well written, rather the obvious April fools and maybe if I were a follower of either team I may have bitten. Laughing

It might be easy in hindsight but it is obvious it is a laugh and if like you say if there is one day a year you have a little giggle it is April 1.

Did anyone see Shawn Merriman fooled on Total Access?

Same time next year? lol!

Thanks, Runnings...Most people got the gag, and appreciated it for what it was, as many found it clever and believable.

I didn't get to see the prank they pulled on Merriman, but I'm going to check it out now. Thanks for the link!

Oh man, banned! that's too extreme. Nicely written and not outside the realms of possibility. You can't please all of the people all of the time I suppose.

Yeah, I've never been banned before...Now I really feel like a renegade/outlaw, lol.

The possibility ot such signing is definitely not impossible still. My report was premature, is all, lol.

As for being banned...You can ban my writing from your site, but you can't ban others from coming to MY site to read what they want to read. And those who banned me, they will still visit my site to read. Sometimes, "bad" publicity is the best publicity, lol.

Thanks for checking it out Simon, and thank you for the kind words. Cheers, mate!
