Rumor has it a fun loving manager informed several members of his team on April Fool's Day that they were being fired due to cost-cutting measures. It was only at the end of the day that he let on that it was nothing more than an April Fool's joke. Rumor also has it the manager was fired the next day.
I got an email from an old friend telling me his wife had a son this morning, he is known to have a weird sense of humour and I have not heard from him in years. As a photo was included I tend to think it is not a fools prank.
The consequences of that one are going to be dramatically greater than being sacked
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
Reminds me of an April Fools joke I did with my (then) girlfriend. We had a picture of me on one knee and her in a wedding dress (from Vegas or something). We both set that as our profile picture and set our relationship status to "married". Fooled a few people.
Sixth week in Paris, done the museums I wanted, went to all the local bars for a bit of ammusement, going to try a Dutch bar tonight, but it is an expensive way of passing the time.
Watched all the Top Gear I can stomach on streetfire.net, and am slowly working my way through the films on youtube, but there is only so much lying on the sofa you can do in a day before you get totally fed up.
Been to Versailles yet? Probably a bit cold for the gardens, but the building gives you a real idea of the differences that lead up to the French Revolution. (Even if they did only remove the human excrement from the corridors once a week )
