April Fools Day

For one day every year, our goal is to make people laugh or startle them out of their everyday routine. Why do we need to wait for April 1st? Why can't every day be like this. People around me are coming to expect it, so I(we) need to expand our possible days for fooling. I am now extending this wonderful holiday and it will be held from January 2nd to December 23rd. That should give us enough time.

The 5 Rules of Fooling

In my youth I may have been over the top, but I have refined my techniques and am now publishing the unofficial rules to april fooling someone.

  1. Tears from laughing are good. Other tears are not.

  2. Destruction of property should be avoiding at all costs.

  3. Fooling someone who doesn't have a sense of humor isn't funny.

  4. Wear clean underwear. It helps us all.

  5. Trips to the hospital are not funny, so try to avoid them.

Word of the Day
facetious (fa·ce·tious): not meant to be taken seriously or literally: a facetious remark.

Why Music Rocks

Have you ever wondered why you nod your head during certain songs, or tap your feet for others? Me too. My 1 year old daughter and I were listening to music on Comcast, while playing. During the song Paralyzer, by Finger Eleven, I realized that my head was nodding to the beat. Then I looked over and noticed that my daughter was doing the same thing. She was not facing me, so I know that it was a reaction to the song and not a reaction to what I was doing. It must be the song.

I Need To Ask

A lot of questions have been bugging me lately, so I just need to ask.

1) Why do people keep running over something a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

2) Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's fa lling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

3) In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

4) Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?

5) If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

I just need to know.
