"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)



My good friends know that I loooooooovvvvvvvve to play practical jokes. Especially if they escalate into prank wars. I'm not admitting to anything, but it's possible that I've participated in pranks as unique and varied as leaving 600 Dixie cups full of Dr. Pepper on a colleague's desk, sealing teenagers into their dorm room at youth camp with saran wrap and duct tape over the door (so they would walk right through it when they woke up), "kidnapping" and photographing a fish all over Texas and the world (and then mailing postcards of the fish's travels back to the owner), and hiding 100 copies of the tract-sized 2000 Baptist Faith and Message in a friend's home (one of which later showed up in Equatorial Guinea. It's a long story.).

The piece de resistance was the day a few years ago that the Librarian and I put a kayak on a friend's roof:

The funniest part about that was that he didn't actually see the kayak when he got home in the dark. His girlfriend saw the rope that was holding it up, and they had to follow the string to find the kayak. On the roof.

Anyway, April Fool's Day is coming, and while I don't have anything planned at the moment, I'm thoroughly enjoying reading about the top 100 April Fool's Day hoaxes of all time. Ideas, ideas!

Memories, light the corners of my mind...

We've been good for a long time. Any idea of who to strike next?

No, but I have a great idea for the week of Easter, so let's figure something out. I'll tell you ALL about it at church.
