    Video is from Al-Jazeera Channel, supposedly about a bunch of guys from Gaza who are manning phone banks to support Obama's primary run - they are volunteers.

    In his defence, it stops hopping around after 30 seconds or so . . . then you just need to close like a hundred dialog boxes with the lyrics (maybe you want to sing along?), but then you're good to go.

    I'm guessing (hoping?) that the eleven-year-old was simply repeating something suspicious, and didn't really know what was going on. If I'm wrong, then I guess the prank becomes less epic and more disturbing.

    The thing is that my 14 year old sister has had a crush on my friend for quite some time. So, during Lunch, she came up to me and yelled that my girlfriend was such a slut and ran away crying. Nell, the 11 year old, then tried to talk to her, and said "God, Remi, you have such terrible taste in women!"

    Then my dad said that his friend (my friend's dad) had met my girlfriend on Saturday, a day when I was in New York.

    I wrote my mom a very "OMG WHAT AM I GOING TO DO!?" email about getting my girlfriend pregnant a couple years ago. I was at school, so email was the best I could hope for. She wrote back a total "You'll be okay, it's not the end of the world, we'll make it through together." I said lolAprilFools.

    A couple weeks later my dad came to visit. The first thing he did when he was out of the car, before even saying hello, was punched me really hard in the arm. Then he smiled and said "That's from mom for your little April Fools email."

    What is totally awesome about that is that they obviously have the models in the game and implemented, so the tauren marines probably actually are going to be available in the map-maker!

    Also, my April Fools joke; I know a guy from school who is a pretty heavily fundamentalist Christian. We've had pretty extensive arguments before, and we've actually come to good agreements (he's actually very smart, aside from being a young earther...at least he's no longer convinced that the sun revolves around the earth). Anyway, I came up to him this morning, and started pouring my heart out, telling him that I was reading through the bible last night and had an epiphany and I want to come back to the lord. He was really starting to believe me for a little bit.

    What you should have done is refused to believe her when she told you it was a joke, broken up with her, and kicked her out of your life entirely. Wait a week, and turn up at her house with flowers and a big sign saying "April Fools!". Bonus points if you fake your own suicide.

    Even Iraq is getting into the fun:
    BAGHDAD — Doah Mohammed played a trick on her mother-in law on Tuesday.

    She called her and told her that her son, Ms. Mohammed’s husband, had been arrested by American and Iraqi soldiers.


    When she got the news, Ms. Mohammed’s mother-in-law gasped and said she was about to faint. So Ms. Mohammed quickly told her that it was only a prank, and the two women laughed — it was, after all, April Fools’ Day.

    Before 2003, the traditional day of tricks and practical jokes — known here as Kithbet Neesan, or April Lie, and imported from the West decades ago — was observed much as it is in the United States. The teasing was biting, but ultimately tame. A man might try to convince a friend that he had gotten a visa to go to America, for example, or a mother might tell her son that his father had bought him a new car.

    Even Saddam Hussein’s son Uday had joined in. On April 1, 1998, his newspaper published a front-page story saying that President Clinton had called for the United Nations sanctions against Iraq to be lifted. (On Page 2, readers learned that it was not true.)

    In recent years, though, as suicide bombings, mortar and artillery fire, kidnappings and killings have become daily fare, Iraqis’ April Fools’ jokes more often reflect what they see around them.

    Rawaa, 25, a manager’s assistant, said that in 2004, when she was in college, a student persuaded the class on April Fools’ Day that the poetry professor — a man they all disliked — had been assassinated.

    “We felt sorry about him, but very happy at the same time, because there will be no more poetry lectures that day,” Rawaa said. She would allow only her first name to be used, afraid of falling victim to the real violence in the capital, anything but a joke.

    Nadia Abdul Razak, 35, out shopping on Al Ather Street in the Karrada district, said that the macabre humor offered a chance for people who spent their days bouncing from terror to grief to laugh for a change.

    “People are bored of this life,” she said, “so we are using it to survive, to continue living, to have a place to smile.”

    But she said it was sometimes difficult to tell what was serious and what was not. That morning, she said, she had gone to the bank and been told that the husband of a friend had been wounded, with three bullets in his leg.

    “We said, ‘Maybe it is Kithbet Neesan,’ ” Ms. Razak recalled.

    But a call to the man’s wife found the woman weeping, she said, and more calls to the hospital confirmed that the husband had, in fact, been shot.

    “Because of the current situation, we can’t distinguish between the reality and the jokes,” Ms. Razak said. “We don’t know which is the truth.”

    Some pranks veer more toward sharp political satire. Ahmed Ali, the owner of one of the many shoe stores that line Al Ather, said he had tried his best to fool a friend, but had failed.

    “I told him that the American forces are withdrawing from Iraq,” Mr. Ali said, “and that George Bush is going to apologize to the Iraqi people for causing destruction and he will pay one million Iraqi dinars to every Iraqi for compensation within two days.

    “My friend didn’t believe me,” he said, adding that he liked Americans, if not their policies.

    But in a country of utter unpredictability, humor can also turn far more ghoulish than was intended. Hadi Abdul Lateef, 26, a clerk in a cosmetics store, said that though he liked to play tricks on people for April Fools’ Day, he no longer dared to do so.

    Two years ago, he said, a friend called the family of another friend, a man named Ali, and told them Ali had been kidnapped and would be killed unless the family paid a ransom.

    The kidnapping was a hoax. But the next day, Mr. Lateef said, Ali was on his way to work when a bomb exploded, killing him.

    “It was a very black joke,” Mr. Lateef said.

    Of course the best part was today when people found out it was a joke. Some reactions were priceless. I wish I would have taken pictures.

    A guy I know used to hang out with the thickest most gullible guy imaginable. One day my friend, with the help of his father, convinced this kid that their whole family was under a witness protection program, and that the mob had found them and they needed to move that very same day in the middle of the night. After a tearful goodbye... he came back to school the next day and pretended not to know why his buddy was freaking out.

    One of our local tv channels here pulled a mean one on the whole country this year, due to immense idiocy the only local power company here has plunged the country into an energy shortage, which means entire cities can be without power for up to four hours a day in an effort to stop the few remaining transformers from melting. They call it load shedding. Early that morning, the morning news reports said that due to an unforeseen and drastic decline in consumption, load shedding for the whole country has been put on hold indefinitely.

    Guess what happened the same day... bastards.

    Hisao? What's the word for when it feels in your heart that everything in the world is alright?

    It wasn't for April fools or anything, but it was a pretty good one nonetheless.

    My dad trives bus for the city transit system here and has for years. When we were in highschool and my buddies and I all got our licenses for the first time, I, with the help of the rest of our friends and my dad, managed to convince my buddy, Tyler, that city bus drivers (bussies instead of cabbies) played a game called Turtle Pushing.

    Turtle Pushing is when a bussie comes up behind a small car in traffic, like your Geo Metros and your Sprints and such, and gives them a bit of a bump or push with the bus. You know, just to get them going... and see how far they can push the Turtle without A) getting in trouble and B) hurting anyone.

    Tyler drove a little blue P.O.S. Sprint around during highschool and was a pretty nervous driver for the most part anyway. I remember the first time I told him about Turtle Pushing... it was awesome. We were driving down the road and I noticed a city bus coming up behind us in the mirror. I started yelling 'Oh shit! Go! Oh shit!' and Ty started to freak out, asking me what was going on. I told him there was a bus behind us and we had to get going! So he freaks out and starts trying to speed away. Eventually we get a safe distance from the bus and I turn to him and ask, 'Haven't you ever heard of Turtle Pushing?!' Well, he hadn't, and after I explained it to him, the look of shock on his face was priceless. He didn't believe me, but I told him about how my Dad was in the running for the playoffs this year and was pretty excited about it.

    The best part of this whole thing was it went on for at least a couple years before he finally caught on that Turtle Pushing was a joke. But our friends, who weren't there when I made it up, picked the joke up and just went along as though everyone knew what Turtle Pushing was and it was completely normal. Ty even asked my Dad about it, but I had already let him in on the secret, so he helped to purpetuate my joke even further.
