How NOT to do an April Fools gag.

That NT News one is only clearly marked as an APRIL FOOLS story because it’s past midday in Australia now. I seriously doubt it was originally posted with that headline, and an opening line of “Gotcha - April Fools”. :slight_smile:

It’s become a convention now for online news sources to go back and edit their stories once the April Fools period has passed, to make it clear if they were a spoof. Because online articles hang around forever, and the joke might not be so obvious when someone clicks on that story in the middle of next January.

The shadowy department has been named the Office for Estimation because it will roughly estimate who the public most wants to govern.[/quote]

I work in a public works department and the director sen this out in an email to senior staff:

I have just been informed that we have high levels of Dihydrogen monoxide coming out of all residential service lines. Please prepare a draft for me to review of a notification that we are aware of this and will be investigating our possible courses of action.

I was the only one who didn’t fall for it.

I love that one, you can find some good warning posters and articles about the dangers of the stuff. :smile:

Using the word “water” and a picture of the bottle ruins the joke though. :angry:


#19

Today’s efforts all seem a bit half-arsed.
