I’m Not Writing About What I Really Want To Because No One Will Believe It Today

I detest April Fool’s Day. In addition to the annoyance of not being to post an exciting announcement because I’m afraid people will think it’s a joke, it gives me nightmares back to elementary school and junior high when I was bullied a lot and the victim of a lot of these “pranks.” Kids would be real dicks to me and when I finally snapped and called them out on it, I always heard “it’s just a joke.”

Bullshit.

April Fool’s Day is just a sanctioned and organized day for bullying.  Sure, some people do it right (like Google, I love to see what Google will be up to on this day) but the vast majority of people abuse it and I hate it. Really, really hate it. The Internet and Facebook and Twitter are so full of misinformed garbage day-to-day that adding an extra layer of crap on top of that is more than I’m able to tolerate.

I really do hate this day so much.

Come back tomorrow for an exciting announcement.

  1. Reminds me of that super disturbing movie Sling Blade where the mother’s boyfriend, an abusive fucker (Dwight Yoakam), kept doing and saying things awful to the main character who was disabled (Billy Bob Thornton) and then saying I’M JUST KIDDING!

    He’s one of the most despicable characters I’ve ever seen on film:

    “So you’re just crazy in a retard kind of way, huh? Wouldn’t matter to me if you did do violence on someone. I ain’t scared of shit. You’re just a humped-over retard, seems to me. I’m just kiddin’. Welcome to our humble home, Buddy.”
