    Well April Fools Day is all most upon us.

    Does anyone care to sharing any stories, or fond memories?

    :D Last year I posted that I won a million dollar lotto - I was much congratulated here, even Paul Wilders bit until I advised them "Happy April Fools Day" - that was a real gotcha. :D

    Would you believe me now if I said I won a lotto? ;)

    The only aprils fools joke I remember was from last year... We were in Grozny back then and I was visiting a tank squad for inspection, they were wearing gas-masks and said they had chemicals leaking... So I get my gasmask as well and started inspection and called for assistance...
    Then my head came up and told me it was a joke... Well the good thing about it that I got promotion that day :p and that was no joke...

    Acadia is no longer on his lily pad - he is a handsome prince and making the most of it. LOL

    Now if I truly did win a few million dollars - yes, I would take all my buddies here and fly everyone to a central country meeting point and have the biggest party ever [all expenses paid]. That would be my gift to all who have been helpful and extended their friendship. See, for a witch, I ain't so bad!! :D

    Aah, I didn't REALLY believe you turned him into a frog, but, HE did! And that's what matters!

    Happy April Fool's Day, Peaches!

    April Fool's hummm...

    Well, other than the normal
    "Eekk!! There's a spider on your head!!"
    or
    "Hey! Look out behind you!!"
    (usually, that's all the kids can think of ;) )

    Well, I get alittle more creative.

    I prepare the children's minds by fixing them scarmbled eggs for breakfast a couple mornings prior to the day.

    Then, as we hurry the morning of April Fools...I put a whole egg on their plates.........
    (they don't realize its been hardboil)

    Then, I say, "hurry and eat your eggs, I don't have time to cook them today."
    Well of course, I always get the 'Deer in the Headlights" look. :eek:

    So, thinking its a raw egg, one of them.......usually Sam will say,"but you have to cook it first!"
    Alicia, the obedient one, will start gently tapping it on the table, ready for a mess.

    Then, they get the green milk to drink
    and ketchup on their toothbrushes.
    Just to start their day great!!

    Then for dinner, I usually make a yummy dinner of purple mashed potatoes......ya know silly stuff like that.


    BUT!!!
    This year, I think I'll make this........


    http://familyfun.go.com/Resources/Features/Food/famf47FoolDinner_fooldin.jpg

    Turn the tables this year with a surprise dessert that will both fool and delight them. Served on a dinner plate, it looks just like mashed potatoes, chicken nuggets and vegetables. But look again....

    THE MAIN COURSE
    For the chicken nuggets and vegetables, you'll need to purchase some peanut butter logs and peas-and-carrots candy mix. (Both candies are sold by the pound at most candy stores.)

    On each dinner plate, arrange four or five peanut butter logs and a small handful of the candy mix. Right before serving, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt to each plate. Top with gravy--a spoonful of caramel sauce or butterscotch topping.

    REFRESHMENTS
    The last laugh is sure to be yours when your kids try sipping this colorful beverage. It's actually flavored gelatin, so you'll need to prepare it ahead of time.

    Dissolve a package of dessert gelatin according to the directions on the box (orange to look like iced tea; raspberry, strawberry or lemon to resemble fruit punch).

    Pour the liquid gelatin into drinking glasses, then place a plastic straw in each. Set the glasses on a tray in the refrigerator until the gelatin firms up.

    YOU FIEND!!

    Picking on little kids like that! Can we come too!? Please!!

    We will even do dishes!! Maybe, if we have to, naaaw!


    I was looking around the 'net for April Fools Jokes, Quotes,

    and Hoaxes - there are alot of them! I was suprised,

    have not really celebrated the day like I should! :D

    This is a story by Jack Handy, the name is familiar but I

    have no idea why? Any one else?



    One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I

    was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but

    instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse.

    "Oh, no," I said. "Disneyland burned down."

    He cried and cried, but I think that deep down, he

    thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive

    over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty

    late. ~Jack Handey

    ###############################
    Yeah, he is a real funny guy! NOT!

    I like this quote from the Devil's Dictionary (Didn't know he had one!)

    April Fool, (n) - The March fool with another month

    added to his folly. ~ LOL! Just what you want to hear!

    Funny little story for today: in our corporate firewall one of our network managers redirected all internet access for one collegue to a jobseeker site. Every browser command resulted in the same jobs page.

    He scanned his pc for virusses, browser hijacks, spyware and trojans a few times before he called for help.

    wonderful :D:D
    I'm a fan now.

    I tried opening a thread in ten forward... but I guess a joke needs more time to be thought out than the 2 seconds I used :(
    A highly cheap joke I guess.


    anyway... four kids in my class now think that Microsoft Europe is now broken into 7 pieces... and Symantec has dropped Norton AV in favour of a new product... Brain AV© ...:D

    Hehe...This year I was THE devil.

    Y'see, I was ~purposefully~ absent for school yesterday b'coz there were these two girls ~Prime enemies~ and I knew that yesterday was the day, the teachers would pick out the 'Volunteers' for the small kiddos' special event - some dance/party and all

    Now, little did the ppl know that my influence with the bigger authorities of the school ensured that I could place their name into the 'Volunteers' (which I did do the day before :p)

    However, I was absent yesterday b'coz the authorities also wanted to pick some extras - substitutes, and I didnt wanna be one of them ;)

    And today, the two of them alongwith some other unfortunate pricks were babysitting the kiddos - changing their costumes, doing their makeup.

    They also had to guard the gate (standing under the hot sun :D) and as soon as anyone tried to come in - 'May I see your invitation please?'

    Unfortunately, the kiddos had cut the fence in the back and took the shortcut into the kiddo party...MUHAHAHAHAHA :D

    And moreover, they got NO REFRESHMENTS...MUHAHAHAHA

    And to top it all off, the moment the darn party was over and they came back into class....I ~almost~ made them faint by irritating them - running my mouth :D

    then the bell rung and the fun was over :'(
