    Just noticed that it is now officialy april fools day!!
    Had loads of fun last april the first, as a teacher I sent the kids round to other classes asking for tartan paint, glass hammers, long stands and bags of steam etc and all the rest of it. Also told them they couldn't go home because they had all caught a contagious virus and had to stay at school for two weeks solid!!!! Oh what fun!!!!:biggrin:

    I'm not due in work til 12.45, so i thought i would get my boss!
    I have arranged for all the staff to ring in sick 10 mins before they are due in and for them to all walk in at normal time like nothing has happened.

    No doubt im in for it when i get in. Cant wait to hear what he said!

    I made a letter up from BT one year and sent it to the boss telling him that BT were doing some essential maintenance on the lines between the hours of 08:00 and 10:00, which involved blowing compressed air down the lines. To make sure that all staff didn't mess up their desks with all the rubbish that would be blown out of the wires, they had to place a plastic bag over the handset and then put the phone in the bin for the duration of the test.

    It actually worked! There were some people who carried out the instructions to the letter, so much so that they had a big discussion about which was the best way to secure the plastic bag over the earpiece!!

    RTE 2 had a guy in today saying that the Chamber of Commerce had approved a dress code for all shops in Grafton St (Dublin). No shell suits or track suits or sports colours were to be allowed because it made "other shoppers" feel uncomfortable. I was all angry about it and shouting at the radio - it was only after about 10 later that we realised it was an April Fool... :hammer

    Far be it for me (a simple flugel player) to even hint at lack of honesty in one such as you, so I won't. ;)

    almost as good as a few years ago when Alton Towers did a press release on Live and Kicking- telling everyone about a new rollercoaster ride that would go through shark infested waters.....


    Luckily they 'fessed up at 12......

    Hehehe...have just been on phone to my little sister and ended up telling her that I have got work as an opera singer (I can't sing at all!), and that I popped to London on the train this morning to do a concert, and have several more lined up and that I may become a full time opera singer...

    She completely believes me and is very impressed and excited and can't wait to hear me sing!

    I didn't mean to do an april fools...it just sort of came out...

    Apparently the Times today had an article about a steering-wheel-less car from BMW, and in one of the other papers they had the results of a survey that "proved" that monkeys are into pornography - apparently the male monkeys preferred looking at pictures of female monkeys' bottoms rather than taking the food offered to them :eek:

    Best one ever - I'd stayed late at the office on 31st March, and done the end of year calculations showing that we were 53% over the required target. I cleared the white board that had the monthly performance figures and wrote "Well, done all, 53% above target. I have had enough of this, so I'm leaving. I'll pop in next week to pick up my gear. Bye and thanks, Will"

    The following morning, I got in at my normal time, 9.45ish, to find that my chair, my computer, all the work off my desk, my movable pedestal, my desk tidy, my pictures on the wall, and even my name on the leave chart had all disappeared.

    Completely forgetting (a) what I'd done the night before, and (b) what day it was, I started to go into one...at which point one of my staff told me to be shut up, and pointed at the white board. "Two parties can play at that game..." she said, before collapsing on the floor with shrieks of laughter.

    I never did get the chair back...

    The worst ever - a former colleague of mine cut the brake cables on a friend's car. It crashed and rolled over as it tried to negotiate a corner, and the driver had to be pulled from the wreckage by the fire service. Fortunately, the driver "only" suffered a sprained wrist and a few broken ribs. 5 other cars were damaged.

    The following day, the culprit was laughing all day, and eventually was asked what was so funny. When he said what he'd done and was on the verge of being beaten to death, he said, "But it was an April Fool!" When told that the victim would probably have died if he'd gone towards the main road instead of down a side street, all he kept repeating was "That's OK, it was an April Fool!"

    He was arrested, and eventually committed to secure accommodation.

    I didnt do anything cos I decided to travel up from Devon today back to Manchester... BUT, I heard some fantastic jokes on Radio 2.... and also one on one of the Welsh local radio stations..... :lol: :lol:

    The Radio 2 main one they did REALLY wound people up and they were calling in complaining and all sorts.... if anyone heard it then you'll know what I mean....
    They went on about some guy who'd won a competition to do a memorial thing (modern art style) to celebrate the life of the Queen Mother (and they actually interviewed this guy).... it was to be made out of a "lump of rock" which was from Norway.... and the uproar Radio 2 got with furious listeners was excellent to hear!! :lol: :lol:

    then they told the listeners it was all a joke.... brilliant! :lol:

    The local welsh radio story was a joke one of the listeners did....
    This woman called in saying that her husband woke her up saying it was gone 9am and this lady had to be in work at 8, so she dashed around, got ready and went off to work.... only her neighbours car was blocking her drive way, so the husband goes and complains to the neighbours.... eventually the woman gets to leave the house, and makes her way into work, almost running someone over, and got pulled over by the police, who said that she could lose her job as a bus driver and licence taken off her... She went home and called in sick at work... She was to receive a fine through the post.... etc etc....
    The radio presenter was like "REALLY?!?! OMG thats awful...."
    Lady on the phone.... "yea, it's really sad......................................

    GOTCHA!!!! only kidding!!!!"
    This lady wrote it all down and planned it.... none of it really happened :p :biggrin:

    :lol:.... better if you heard it though :p........... :lol:
