Today’s that day again, like every year: outrageous stuff on every blog, from every blogger. They think it’s in the spirit of a prank.
Well no, it’s not.
To announce outrageous stuff that’s obvious right away is not a prank. Your jokes ain’t funny, people. They’re stale and stupid and fool noone but yourselves. My feed reader is brimming with the aborted creativity of the thousand bland attempts at witty lies. There are some good ones deep in there, but those are few and far between. So cut it out – if you’re not clever, stay away. You do not have to make up something to be cool.
’Tis better to be thought a fool…
Update: verdict for the year: big ups to Ovid, and an honorary mention for Thomas Klausner. Everyone else: try harder or try not to, next time.
