Maybe it's just me but when a blogger makes an announcement on April 1st that they're hanging up the keyboard I move on and wait to see what they post on April 2nd.
My recollection of one of the best April Fool stunts was when a local radio station announced that the federal government had introduced amending legislation to switch Canada over to metric time. It caused no end of uproarious laughter as several of us watched a particular supervisor go ballistic.
The thing is, there is a movement to create a metric time system. That made the joke all that much better.
Personally, I like the effort put into this one. You just know someone is going to believe it.
