Poopy Strip: "April Fools"
Posted: Monday April 2nd, 2007 by

You folks know me, I have no qualms about tossing my my opinion about like so many seeds, sowing my angst and ire that it might bloom amid fields of apathy. And around this time every year my inner disgruntled Johnny Appleseed storms forth, seed-bag in hand, tossing indignation about with wild abandon.

That is to say I loathe April Fools Day. This was not always so; up until a few years ago I at least bore the "holiday" a grudging tolerance. But, after I started getting more into gaming news, the weight of its pointlessness started to press on me more heavily. Then this weekend, as I looked for gaming news on which to base a comic (since Vanguards wouldn't let me log in), all I seemed to find were april fools articles or articles about what sites were running april fools articles. After what seemed like hours of digging through immature rubbish to find anything of value, I gave up on the endeavor entirely and decided to rebel instead.

Though I prefer not to partake in the custom myself, I don't shun people or certain websites for their personal little april fools jokes. But, when sites and magazines that are considered to be "trusted gaming news sources" run april fools articles, I quickly become incensed. There has to be a disconnect somewhere, a spot where we can escape the immaturity and not accidentally accept it as truth.

In the end I guess my point here is to ask, no beg, ANY news sites not to post april fools articles. But if not... The Irascible Mr.Ted and His Angry Monkey are watching.
