Was today's photoplasty a gag? I didn't question it at first but after I re read it .... yeah I doubt Serkiss actually managed to eat 25 pounds of bananas or that they had one guy work for two years yo make all those glass balls.

Oh wait i have to go the Apricots just burst the fifth barricade.

I'm certain it was a joke, it was the Bowie one that made it click, everyone knows that is his natural bulge

What sort of twisted mods would pull that sort of gag on a trusting membership? Honestly, that site is beyond contempt.

I hate April Fools so much. What a waste of time that entire article was. When will the internet learn that simply stating incorrect information does not count as a prank or a joke, it is just lazy.

At least I can unabandon that last shred of hope for the new Ghostbusters gimmick movie, now that I know snookie being a casting option was simply a lie.

And just because they really pissed me off:

The cop that speaks in Ghostbusters 2 is an actor named Dave Florek who was not a cop and has been in various movies and tv shows such as Married With Children and King of Queens.

No, Dune did not steal "vicious, indigenous population fighting and defeating a technologically superior foe". As with so many things, It is the other way around, Star Wars stole it from Dune.

If you couldn't tell from #23 which claims that Leslie Nielson had no sense of humor at all, then I must say you have to watch Airplane. Again, if you've seen it. And all the episodes of Police Squad.
