Default No April Fool's Prank this year

Those of you who have been around a bit know I like to do a big Border prank on April Fool's Day. However, this year, I'm unable to muster up the spirit to do it. I'll just have to make 2017's even better to make up for the lack of one this year. Sorry!

I'm with ya all the way on this one, Soda. Somehow, my inner jokester is keeping a low profile right now.

No probs Soda, we understand - looking forward to next years one. I'm sure you'll make it one that Glenn would be proud of!!

Take care.

Totally cool with it, I feel the same way. I'm already lamenting the fact that the internet will be rife with pranks and become utterly useless tomorrow. :P

I'm with you too Soda. You have done wonderful pranks over the last 10 years or so but I can totally understand that this year very few of us would be in the mood for one. Certainly not me anyway. Good call

I totally understand too. I normally hate April Fools anyway, but the LOST forum I used to help moderate on did fun little April Fools things too. It's already started in other countries as I just saw one that actually was a convincing casting spoiler for "Once Upon a Time". LOL But it's the mean and horrible things I can't stand that get done.

Soda never did anything mean or horrible here - it was always done in a spirit of fun, but I think this year it would look disrespectful, and anyway I know very few of us have the heart as yet to join in.

I feel the same way. It just wouldn't seem right to do it this year.

I love jokes and humor, but I don't like April Fools. In school, I was on the receiving end of a few not so nice April Fools pranks. My inner jokester isn't up par right now, either.

No problem with that at all here either.
