April Fool’s Day News

In what you may or may not consider to be bad news, I won’t be creating a prank page for April Fool’s Day this year. This is because April 1 will coincide with Easter Sunday, and I expect most readers will be offline. I apologize to anyone who was looking forward to it, and especially to Jingles, the Practical Joke Pig. Next year, Jingles.

    I’m kinda hoping that this announcement is itself an April Fools prank, Mike!

    (yes, I understand your logic and support your decision, but I’m still bummed)

      I’m with DebG on this one. Easter is not my holiday; not that April Fool’s Day is, but still …
      if Easter is your day, Mike, then have a happy one! (And the same to everyone else who celebrates it.)

    I won’t actually post the story here, but who remembers the reason that the Smothers Brothers were pulled off the air? Clue: It had an Easter theme.

      Well, now I want to know! I am searching the web and can only see the another six weeks of winter joke. But I did find this -https://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=130569467 (Which I cannot listen to now as they are playing Michael Slattery’s Dowland in Dublin on 96.3 classical fm right now and don’t want to miss any of it.)

      The Smothers Brothers were fired by CBS for political content, most especially anti-war content, although the “official” reason was that they had failed to turn in an episode for review by the network censors by the stated deadline. Their firing *may* have been prompted by request Richard Nixon. Nothing to do with Easter at all.

      Incidentally, they sued CBS and won.
