Default April Fools Day!

What April Fools Day joke did you play on someone? Or, did they get you?

In the Navy, I was a supply clerk (storekeeper) onboard ship. A new recruit came storming into the supply office with an extremely urgent request for a part for the radar. It was April fools Day, by the way. Every year, something comes our way in supply. We were on high april fools alert. anyway, He was lit up and open for business! He said the radar screen was down and it needed a

are ya ready for this? serious as a heart attack, this young kid uttered these next words as if the fate of the free world relied upon this repair part.

We need a "Fallopian Tube" to fix the radar screen, ASAP!

Everyone in the room busted up laughing. Poor guy. We then told him he had been had by his department. Once we explained what a
Fallopian tube was, he calmed right down. Joking around when you're the rookie or new recruit is always expected. No foul, ho harm...

Ok, who's next? did ya get someone? Or, did they get you?

All in good fun, though?

pretty much our entire office was had this morning....

We're going through the final stages of a large merger with a massive US company (WPP for those with marketing/advertising knowledge) and we've been handed down many Corperate policies, some of which are good, others are very different then what we're used to.

This morning, the office Director sent out the following email:
In accordance with new WPP regulation effective May 1, 2005 we will all be required to work from 8am to 5pm PST (or longer), without exception!

This is new directive that comes from the concept of "being present" to ourselves, our clients and our network.

If we adhere to this correctly we will be able to avoid the next step of having to move to a time-card system!

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Needless to say, it scared the crap out of pretty much everyone

I replied with:
That's quite the April fools day joke Justine

ha ha ha

It was more of a question then anything... I just wanted confirmation if it was a joke or not... Thankfully shes not utterly mean, as no doubt she could of kept the joking running all day, but to everyones relief she admitted it was a joke...

I just put a message on a co-worker's desk while he is out of the office saying a "Mr. Dave Lyon" had called and could he return the call. The phone # is the Greater Vancouver Zoo. We'll see what happens!
