    At no point in time is this an acceptable topic to bring up even if it is a joke.

    Re: So how much April Fool's Stuff will we run into today? Got any stories?

    A few years back a co-worker just got a new truck. He was parking it in the far end of a huge parking lot. Since its dark when we come in and the lot is well lit I told him he had left his lights on. At first he didn't believe me, but I simply said "fine don't come crying to me for a jump at quittin' time." After the trek to and from his truck, I smiled and he gave me the finger. Simple, spur of the moment, but well worth the effort.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    The Sidd Finch article in SI years ago is still the champ.

    I had never heard of this until cigaretteman posted a link to an article about it. Pretty funny if you ask me.

    Woot always does a BOC on April Fools, and they always make you jump through stupid hoops to get it (which is half the fun).

    And yes, I did get one.
