The April Fool’s Day Prank
If you didn’t check RWN yesterday, you can check out the April Fool’s page that inspired the comments & emails below, here.
“Best April Fool’s joke ever. You had me worried. Really worried.” — soberannie
“First I hyperventilated, then I was angry, then I looked at a flipping calendar. Nice one, I’ll be sure to send you a bill for all the throw pillows that I ripped in half.” — John_Greene
“When I came to RWN last night and realized that something wasn’t right, I immediately started freaking out. No more RWN… instead R(ino)-WN…Then I came to my senses and looked closer. Hahahaha. You’re giving people heart atttacks here! I see a class action lawsuit!
April Fools!” — _FRANKVOIKEL
“John, you are, and forever will be the single greatest prankster…ever. If only I had the readership to make this funny.
P.S. YOU ARE A TOTAL *SS!…in the nicest way possible, of course.” — msheldon
“Why, oh, why is it that liberals, including RINO’s, think people are so dumb that if they radically change their content yet keep the same name, people won’t know the difference? Does Mr. Chaffee really believe regular visitors to RWN are going to stick around when he begins slingling his left-wing crap???
Congrats for getting the big bucks, though, from the RINO’s.
Looks as if I’m now going to have come here for my regular dose of the wit and wisdom of John Hawkins.” — Cartman at CG.
“Okay, Hawkins, you punked me and punked me good. I’ve known you’re real sharp, but today I see that you’re even sharper than I first realized.” — 2nd post from Cartman at CG
“Good Lord, John. I was freaking out all over the place. I was so angry that I almost wrote to Powerline to suggest they purge Right Wing News from their favorites; fortunately, I came here first. That was the best April Fool’s joke ever!” — Gracie
Putting the prank together wasn’t actually all that hard. I grabbed a premade web template, added in a little text, and uploaded it. It only took a couple of hours to prepare.
