Response: April Fool’s


ranks are for little kids, so I guess that makes me a very old little kid. Just to set the record straight. I am fine and the program is still intact… for the time being. I guess for any prank to work, there has to be a degree of believability, no? I mean, if I had written that I was abducted by aliens, it would not have come close to being an April Fool’s gag. But life being what it is–not to mention the economics of academia–some of you vulnerable to my prank, maybe some more than others. Certainly my students know what’s what and so are perhaps the most vulnerable, and hence responded the most vehemently. Hehehehehe. I’m such a jerk. but I couldn’t help it.

Anyway, here are some of the comments and my response.

Just the first two paragraphs? What gave me away? I was hoping you’d be worried until the end of the post.

Visit SleepyWalnut's Xanga Site! Arg! I definitely about died there, and I’m even a day late reading this. Gah. Nice one. Although, I had a terrible little thought in my head saying, “At least we still have those summer classes I petitioned so hard for…”

Hahahahahaha. It’s okay. It’s only human nature. And I’m glad you petitioned for the class. Makes me feel wanted.

Visit Grom's Xanga Site!Shaun still believes it true, he can’t grasp the fact that it was an April Fool’s prank…he is crying right now.

Woah, I didn’t mean to make anyone cry! Dear, dcear, dear. What should I do?

Visit shi's Xanga Site!You’re a poopy head.

A poopy head? Man, them’s fightin’ words. If it was anyone else, I’d be all over that, but since its YOU, well… I guess it’s okay. I’m a sucker for you…
