I’ve been getting sporadic emails for the last month, all along the same theme: “what are you gonna do for April Fools’ Day? I bet it’s gonna be wild.”
And I have no idea how to say “nothing, really.” Because, come on. This is, by and large, a blog where I post theoretically amusing crap I have written and/or made. I mean, just over the last week, my output has included mockery of Dilton Doiley, Marlon Wayans, Signalman, the Hillary Clinton sniper story, the Viking Commando and Martin Van Buren. How many other blogs are making fun of Martin Van Buren, for crissake? 
So if I post just another humour piece, it’s redundant. That leaves the “prank” piece, except those are inevitably terrible and almost uniformly obvious from the get-go, and all that’s left for people to comment upon in such situations is to go the “ha ha you really got me” route and humour the author, or alternately the “I wish this was true because damn wouldn’t that be awesome” route. And what fun is that for my audience?
You can’t even Rickroll people any more because everybody has those browser scripts specifically designed to prevent being Rickrolled. (And dare I say that whoever came up with that script in the first place really has an incredibly low tolerance for silliness.)
So, in short, don’t expect any “special” April Fools’ Day material from me. I don’t see the point. Tomorrow will be Business As Usual here at mightygodking.com, which means probably gay-themed mockery of Archie comics and possibly a longwinded rant about some facet of public policy.
My lack of April Fooling will, in and of itself, become a meta-April Fool as I subvert expectations, even! Yeah! That works! That’s the ticket! Damn, I’m good.
 Well, other than ihatemartinvanburen.com, but that guy has issues.
