As usual, the divide between the Internet and age old customs has been broken, and several large websites are out there boasting their April Fools day pranks. Some are funny, some are not so funny.
So what’s not so funny? SNOG! gone pink. Having supposedly been sold to a bimbo called “Sparkles” (current theories: Renay/Valerie in disguise) and backed up with an angsty (and quite offensive) livejournal post.. it’s no surprise that the community is in turmoil. A spin-off has been created with members expressing their anger at this so-called joke, and others being accused of abandoning SNOG!/Renay.
Deary, deary me. I’m staying out of the pranks this year — I still get people asking me how my baby is from my pregnancy prank several years ago. Oops.
Edit: I just found a list of mainstream website pranks listed on wikipedia on a forum, thought some of you guys (and gals) might get a giggle out of some of them. :) My favourite is probably Homestar Runner.
