My thoughts on April Fools, as written by Gabe at Videogum:
Ugh, pranks. They’re the worst! For one thing, they are rude and mean-spirited and they play on people’s natural tendencies towards decency and trust, not to mention the innate human desire for connection. “Oh, you want so badly to believe that you are not alone in this absurd world full of pain and suffering that you’re actually willing to believe something that I told you just because we have established years of friendship? Well now there is a bucket on your head, or whatever.” Pranks.
It’s OK to like pranks. I mean, you are a child if you do? Because the only people who like pranks are children? Because children’s skulls haven’t fused, so they’re very susceptible to being into terrible things, and also children are cruel. They have no reason not to be, they live in a world where consequences are, like, “no dessert,” so not real consequences…
I especially don’t get pranks like this.
So I’m an idiot because he’s really alone…? Haha, isn’t my face red/his bed cold?
