April Fools Day...Cancelled
| Posted: Wednesday, April 1, 2009
Yup. The chicanery finally doomed one of our favorite days at Merge Left Marketing. See this article I found in the Sports section of "The Daily Nopaper" out of Wehaklaha, New Mexico:
"April 1, 2009 - Wehaklaha, New Mexico. April Fools Day Cancelled due to lack of resident participation. Or over participation. We're not sure.
The mayor of Wehaklaha says: "When you get down to it, people were making so many jokes that we eventually didn't care. As far as Wehaklaha is concerned, April Fools is for fools."
In the photo above you'll see the Mayor handing a local the annual "April Fools" trophy for stowing away, never to be returned...unless residents change their minds.
"Nope - no more April Fools for us. Nope. Not at all," the Mayor continued, before disinterestedly walking away from reporters.
Of course, even if the goof folks at Wehaklaha don't celebrate April Fools, we at Merge Left still want to wish you a happy one anyway. After all, it's after today that the seriousness of real business and no foolishness begins in earnest once again.
