April Fools

My father in-law freaked me out yesterday morning, April Fool's Day. He and my wife concocted a scheme to make me think our car had been stolen. The joke went off well, I was startled for a few minutes. I had been had. So, I decided to seek revenge on him. He is in the steel business, so I decided I would hit him where it "could" hurt.

He still uses Internet Explorer as his browser, his homepage is home.bellsouth.net. I took a screen capture of the page and Photochopped the News section. I redirected Explorer's homepage to open the image instead.

It was hilarious when he read the Breaking News headlines. I watched quietly laughing as he leaned in closer to the screen to read the rest of the shocking news story. Here's the capture I created:

I linked the entire image to a random April Fool's image I found on Google Images.


A lesson was learned...don't mess with a New Media guy on April Fool's Day!

Poor Sammy! That's hilarious dude. I'll never forget the time you both caught me out with the fake lottery ticket though. I didn't even cop when it said I could claim the prize at 5 Yoremama's House! Hook line and sinker!

Thanks guys. The gag lottery tickets are always a great way to fool someone.

Elastics can take eyes out, can't advocate that kind of behavior now can I? heh heh.

Cheers,
Dave
