April Fools

April fools is at once an annoying and amusing time for me.  On one hand there are places like thinkgeek where I look forward to the jokes they will produce.  A lot of that has to do with the fact that they later create the joke items for sale.  Whoo hoo!  It's a genius idea really.  They use April Fools as a test bed for all the out there ideas they have and see what people want.  On the other hand I despise dealing with April Fools for blogs, comics, and any place else that I go to for more serious content updates.  Nothing ruins the flow of a story for me like an out of place joke strip.  Annoyance abounds when a content site that updates only once a week updates with a lazy joke in place of a real update.  The knowing that you'll have to wait another week merely increases the perturbance. Even better is the sites that aren't scheduled for an update on April Fools but take it upon themselves to have an April Fools joke anyways.  It has happened.
