  • April Fools

    Is it "April Fools", "April Fool's", or "April Fool"? Regardless, it's April 1st, which makes me wonder what kind of retouched practical (or impractical) jokes you can come up with.

    Keep it tasteful, but as funny as you want.

    Start a new thread in this forum, describe how/why/etc you did what you did, and attach your joke image.

    Don't worry if you come across this after April. This Challenge, like all Challenges here, never expires. So even if you're coming in a year or more late, we'd still like to see your joke.

    Out of sight, out of mind? Just because April has come and gone doesn't mean this Challenge has expired. Challenges never expire.

    We did have one entry, but it was submitted as a Restoration Challenge (part of the joke).

          Clicking buttons is like Forrest Gumps box of chocolates "you never know what you are going to get.

            Hey that would've been a good quote for that new Movies Quotes thread.

              I guess this is a good day to bump this thread.

                As some of you know, I run a site called The Daily .WAV (www.dailywav.com) - it's just a bunch of short sound bytes from films/tv shows. In years past for April Fool's Day (I didn't do anything this year - didn't have the time) I did things like: one year I redid every sound on my site so it played backwards, another year I made every sound on the site play the same thing (the Mac "quack"), another year I made everything play random sounds so even if you clicked on the same link 10 times you'd get 10 different sounds.

                You wouldn't believe the amount of mail I got each year saying my site was broken when I did this. I'd then reply back with "What day is it?" Even then, most people didn't get it. I'd get responses back like "It's Tuesday, so what?"

                  Even after reading TidBits for years and knowing that there is always one extra issue a year, I still got bit by yesterdays announcement that Microsoft had purchased AOL.... I never learn.
