I will be jumping into the sea and taking my leave of the Absolute Write ship as of midnight tonight. Alas, the time has come once again for the lunatics to shake the asylum doors and rattle your addled brains.

The end is nigh.
The end is nigh!

APRIL 1 BE NOT THE DAY TO VISIT THESE HALLOWED HALLS, MY GOOD PEOPLE! Abandon ship or abandon all hope!

The expected-unexpected happens to the expected few. If they are of real snuff, they should do something that hits the masses who fly under their radar. It's easy to be clever within in a limited scope. The challenge is to extend that cleverness outside of the normal streambeds. How can y'all rise?

I remember mine. I came in to check the boards, no suspecting anything weird, and spent many hours trying to figure out what gremlins had overrun AW. Unfortunately, I'm very literal, so I was taken in many, many times. I was so upset from some of the threads/posts that it was several days before I checked back in and realized that it was a big prank.

I'm always an April's Fool--but now I'm enjoying it since I'm in on the joke. :D

That is exactly what happened to me and why I don't play along. It was awful at the time, and still is when I think about it.

But others enjoy the mayhem and have a great time.

I don't know what's going to happen. I've kept my eyes and ears closed whenever the subject has come up.

What really freaked me out the first time, and this was several years ago, was how the mods got into a big fight. It was very realistic, and I had no idea it was joke. The arguments escalated until several mods were banned. It sounds crazy now, yet it was believable at the time.

To this day, I still haven't gotten over the shock and dismay I felt, and probably never will.

yep...super easy recipe without buying a mix...I'm all about the Hurricanes until mid-May when me and my friends hit margarita season...then, put away the rum and bring on the tequila :)

BTW-isn't New Orleans one of the absolute best places in the world? What a slice of life!!
