Beware April Fool!

31 Mar

Beware!  April Fool’s Day!


Like a broken cuckoo clock, even paranoids are right some of the time.

But April 1st is a day when people are out to get you.  (Heh. Heh. I may be one of them…)

Fool’s Day is observed throughout the Western world and has the potential of booming BIG on the internet.  Can you say “viral?”

Of course, trying to get people to believe ridiculous things is a favorite practice every day of the year with some.  As we know, politicians and lawyers thrive on spin, prevarication and bold-faced lying.  Unfortunately they lack the “fun” factor.


Check your Twitter feed and FB page for breaking news: “Bigfoot Captured” “Justin Bieber Pregnant” “American Idol Winner Busted” “Charlie Sheen Shuts Up” “Gaga Rocks AARP Convention” “Statue of Liberty Sold on eBay”

Set your radar high.  Be suspicious. Look over your shoulder. Or, better yet – beat them to it. Get creative. Come on, have some fun and “Punk” someone!




FYI Aston Kutcher:  you may punk me anytime.

They (whoever they are) say, “Only a fool plays it cool.” Especially on April 1st – every prankster’s favorite day!

      Yes, excellent idea. Albert Brooks (@AlbertBrooks) tweeted recently “Twitter turns us all into Bob Hope.” Great point – and a good thing!
