When I was a kid we would just make up stories for each other and yell "April Fools!" whenever someone bought one. Simple and direct. But with each advancing year, an additional level of sophistication becomes mandate in this global war of pranksterism. An aging comic arsenal and questionable intelligence force underdeveloped senses of humor into mean offensives or bunkered down self-defensive strategies that leave them out of the global comedy trade. This comical race for the last laugh threatens anyone without a means to prank, prank first, and prank back. The only strategy that ensures everyone a place in the practical jokes of tomorrow is one of mutually assured deprecation. So let's hear those good ones, like I said, I need some ideas!
