April Fools Day has been kind of interesting throughout time. Well, my time, at least:

In grade school, April Fool's jokes consisted of:

"Your shoe's untied."
"April Fools!"

In high school, I remember only one April Fool's joke. At that time they were bigger and better:

The Taco Liberty Bell

I still think that this particular joke was one of the best ever done.

For the past two years, I've been checking Fark.Com religiously on April Fools Day, because if a good joke shows up, they hit it (if you forgive the pun).

But here's something that I find disturbing: Pagan April Fools Day Jokes.

You know what, we all expect it. It's never well done, and it shows a serious disrespect for another religion. Yep, you know what I'm talking about:

"I've seen the light, I'm saved!"
"Dude that wasn't funny last year."
"Ha! April Fools!"

I mean, geez. Can we do something else? Anything else? Maybe make a joke about how runes are a development of the Nazis, and we have proof? Or maybe that a new artifact has been found that proves that the ancients worshipped a form of the Christian devil?

But "I converted" simply isn't funny. It's like "Oh, look, we all look down on this religion, so why don't I pretend to now be part of this religion and get a reaction!"

Isn't that why we hate fluffy bunnies?

So freaking give it a rest.

When a monkey flings dung at the crowd... it isn't being disrespectful, its being a monkey. Just because some species of monkey can talk, doesn't make them any more intelligent. Let them make fun of whatever they want, they're talking monkeys for goddess sake.

The words of the foolish and words of the wise, are not far apart in Discordian Eyes. - P.D.
