The local radio DJ on one station was quite happy with the report that Publix grocery stores were going to open stand along sub sandwich shops. I switched stations to hear that it was an AFD prank. It's a pretty good idea, though. They should name them "Sublix".

This is amusing:

This is not an April Fools joke, it's just terrible.

They do have the same sandwich made to order counter that most groceries stores do now, the one I'm familiar with in SW Jax has it set up overtly as a grab lunch and go place with a drink dispenser and potato chip bags.

Well, that's the joke, it was trolling people who like the made to order Publix sub counter, but who don't want to have to go into a grocery store for lunch, or something.

Awww, I saw a mention of Marineland on there. Does Marineland even still exist? I liked it as a kid, but it was long since overshadowed by the splashier Seaworlds of the world.

Apparently so.

I don't remember if I've ever been to Marineland. Sea World was closer.

I never had the urge to visit marineland. It is likely I can't handle the truth.

NPR had a pretty good April Fools Day joke, and made a good point, to boot.

Here's another article about that, in which you can actually read some of the responding comments. Also, I think, a more relevant selection of said comments.

No no! You can read the comments that are actually part of, and greatly enhance enjoyment of, the article. The big comments. Stop about halfway through when you see the little comments, which are comments on the comments in the article.

I don't usually like pranks, but this one was pretty good (and with luck, taught the professor a valuable lesson and persuaded him to change his policy): apparently a college prof had a policy that if your phone rings in class, you are obligated to not only answer it, but put it on speakerphone. So one woman had a friend call pretending to be from a pregnancy crisis center, telling her that the test is positive, you are pregnant, but since you said the father is no longer in your life we do have some resources available to help you ....

Prof took it pretty well, though. Good for him.

This, from a friend's school.

The professor involved apparently has a great sense of humor.

Japanese rock band BAND-MAID is an all-girl group with, well, a maid costume theme, as seen here:

They have declared that effective Sunday, they are BAND-MAIKO:

I got a right wing fundraising email from Ted Nugent singing the praises of Joe Arpaio. This is clearly the biggest April Fools joke ever.

I think it's more that most of them think that war is all tough and macho, just like they want to be, but there aren't many of them who both 1) went to war and 2) will still boast about it (because war fucking sucks). So the only people left who will talk that tough talk are the draft dodgers.
