April 1

I was never one for April Fools jokes; I remember there was a rule in schools when I was younger than all pranks and lies had to be carried out before noon, or else the person doing them was the fool. I’ve never really been sure if that was a thing anywhere else, or merely a way that my school tried to keep hijinks to a minimum, but I wouldn’t be surprised either way.

On the Internet, of course, April Fools is the day when people just make shit up in the name of comedy. Not that I have anything against that in theory, of course; I personally love making shit up for the purposes of amusing myself with weak jokes, but what ends up being so frustrating about the Internet on April 1 is twofold: (1) You can’t trust anything, and (2) So many of the jokes are just plain bad.

I can’t wait until April 2nd.
