Practical jokes are a lot like surprises: some people like them, and some people don't. And no matter what, the people who don't like them wont like them. The thing about A F D is, though, that everybody has fair warning. When you roll out of bed on April 1st... You should know by now that the pranksters of the world are active.
No matter what we did there was bound to be some % of you guys who didnt like it... We couldn't prevent that...
You should know, by now, to take everything with a grain of salt, or avoid the world, or check the toilet for plastic wrap.
A F D is the day that people play pranks. And if one pushes you a little too far... Well.. Just assume it was unintentional and wait for midnight...
While that may be true....
It wouldn't hurt the mods to give a simple apology to those who were personally insulted by it.... instead of make fun of them further.
I think THAT is the real issue here. not the joke but the continued poking at those who were insulted by it.
