putting sugar in the salt shaker is an april fool's joke, not announcing a new product in a hilarious send-up of corporate speak so we can all get our mouths in a different spot on your dick.

I'm totally kidding. Congrats strangers. (Matt P), Friday, 1 April 2011 20:18 (thirteen years ago) link

You take product launches more seriously that I think you should if you end up with your mouth on a dick.

i do, totally

april fool!

Really only the year my ex girlfriend, whom I had just gone through a bitter break-up with two weeks prior, left me a answering machine message telling me she was pregnant.

'what are you, the Hymen Protection League of America?' (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Friday, 1 April 2011 20:29 (thirteen years ago) link

ouch that seems over the line!

rockapads, Friday, 1 April 2011 20:32 (thirteen years ago) link

basically it's annoying to get emails saying "google: now hiring autocompleters!" and then hear how google knows about font funnies. thanks i already use you all the time, quit aggressively trying to have a personality please! i mean i'm just saying. *poops on party*

I'm totally kidding. Congrats strangers. (Matt P), Friday, 1 April 2011 20:32 (thirteen years ago) link

Yeah, I'm not sure how she ever thought that was funny. It was pretty much that 30 second message that made me feel 100% okay about her being an ex at that point.

'what are you, the Hymen Protection League of America?' (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Friday, 1 April 2011 20:33 (thirteen years ago) link

april fool's day makes me nervous tbh

I'm totally kidding. Congrats strangers. (Matt P), Friday, 1 April 2011 20:35 (thirteen years ago) link

I'm very pleased I don't know or work with anyone who thinks that april fool's day is anything other than completely shit.

oppet, Friday, 1 April 2011 20:40 (thirteen years ago) link

The last person I met that cared about April Fool's was mentally challenged. And that's all there is for me to say.

haha i dated a girl once who, when noticing at a party that i had the hiccups, leaned over and whispered "......i'm pregnant"

i think april fools is really big for tech companies because nerds only understand humor when its regimented and mandated

On a possibly related note, I like how Thinkgeek uses today to both push funnies and do target market analysis.

I like april fools day, but that google thing was dumb as a post.

people who get into april fools day pranks generally don't have a sense of humor. or at least, they don't seem to get what humor is about.

I used to like the old newspaper ad stunts, like the white coffee bean, stuff like that...but I don't really pay attention anymore

basically it's annoying to get emails saying "google: now hiring autocompleters!" and then hear how google knows about font funnies.

Especially when it's say Nestle pretending to change a product name for publicity April fool lolz and you're left wondering whether all those dead babies in Africa got the joek

I've only pulled one april fool's prank, ever, at work, where I convinced someone a project we had worked our asses off on had been put on hold. She was mad initially but said it made her laugh later.

don't have any patience for that now, plus nobody can ever get me on an April Fool joke....

San Te, Friday, 1 April 2011 22:23 (thirteen years ago) link

I'm pretty gullible so I used to live in fear of getting pranked...at high school April Fool's Day for me was like "International Jumping off Tall Buildings Day" for someone afraid of heights. But not anymore! for I am brave and will happily punch someone who pranks me :D

VegemiteGrrl, Friday, 1 April 2011 22:29 (thirteen years ago) link

"Hey guess what, girl? I'm pregnant!"

Anil Dash being an April Fool's scold on bsky, glad to know this humor impairment isn't limited to Mastadon

"Most April Fool’s jokes are unfunny for the same reason that the “dudes whining about cancel culture” genre of pseudo-comedy is unfunny. Just being an asshole to others is, in addition to being obnoxious, simply not very entertaining."

I've seen more complaints about jokes than actual jokes so far this year. I think part of it has to do with everyone being a little bit of a credulous rube and real life being more ridiculous than most jokes of years past

ɥɯ ︵ (°□°) (mh), Monday, 1 April 2024 19:22 (three weeks ago) link

the only AFD prank I ever pulled off as an adult was a workone that I deemed cruel and apologized for later (lying and saying we lost a contract and our project was on hold).

i mostly hate AFD because if something serious happens and you need to tell everyone, you have to keep stressing that "this isn't an AFD joke" to get everyone to take it seriously

Someone from my job sent me a copy of Mo Bunnell's The Snowball System: How to Win More Business and Turn Clients into Raving Fans today. I'm not in sales, so I really hope this is a prank and not a sign of an upcoming change to my role.

idk if it’s humourless not to dutifully acknowledge the designated Humour Day by chuckling at 300 brands announcing an obviously fake unfunny thing on cue

As noted upthread, I really don't have a taste for April Fool's pranks:

Really only the year my ex girlfriend, whom I had just gone through a bitter break-up with two weeks prior, left me a answering machine message telling me she was pregnant.

Weirdly, haven't noticed any April Fool's Day "jokes" today ... and not sure if that's because I'm too tired to care or, more collectively, it just doesn't seem the time.
