April Foolin'

Yesterday, I was totally sucked in by this April Fool's Day tweet.

Of course, part of it was that they were a day early and it WASN'T yet April 1st. The other part that sucked me in was that there was just enough truth to it to make it believable. James Marsters--Spike, to Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans--narrates the audiobooks for Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series, and Bob is Harry Dresden's talking skull sidekick. I can totally see JM as Bob's voice.

However, the mere thought of Robert Pattinson, in all his freakish sparkly vampire glory playing my beloved knight errant-wizard, Harry Dresden, was enough to make me do this:

But, the tweet got me, and it gave me a laugh.

Now, I'm not much of a prankster. Even something as relatively innocuous (though ludicrously funny) as this one is beyond my imaginative abilities. However, I am appreciative of a good one.

How about you? Do you like to pull pranks for April's Fools Day?

If not, why?

If so, what is the one you were most proud of?

That is a horrifying tweet!

Nope, not a prankster. :)

Even though it was not my idea, a co-worker placed a sign on our copier. "This copier is now voice activacted. Please state your name and how many copies are needed." Yep, somebody fell for it. At least they did have a good sense of humor and everybody had a good laugh!

Oh that's rich. I probably would have fallen for it too. :)

I'm not a prankster myself but if the prank is done in fun I like a good one.

Renee said...

Chris: lol. Isn't it?

Jessica: Wow. That's a good one! Funny, without being mean. (I might've fallen for that one.) :-P

Tracy: Yes, it makes a difference if there's a sense of fun, not a desire to embarrass someone.
