A Day of Fools

What's in a name? April Fool's Day. All Fool's Day. Says it all, really. There is a multi-national tradition of taking the piss, especially in Britain. And if there's one thing which used to characterise the quintessentially British character it was effortless self-deprecation; a trait that seems to be fast dying out and as the politicos learned last week, if you can't take it you shouldn't dish it out. Who's the fool now? The jury's still out.

See, to see a twat you have to be a twat. To pull off a prank you need to be a cockspank (at some time in your life). And if there's one thing worse than being the butt of a joke it's being just a butt. A big fat horse's arse.

As George W Bush famously said "There's an old saying in Tennessee - I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee - that says, fool me once, shame on - shame on you. Fool me - you can't get fooled again." (go on, click the link - it's solid gold!)

Everybody, young and old, shallow or profound, lowly or high and mighty can get in on the act. Drop your guard and go with the flow, Joe. Call it therapy

So, don't get upset off if you got caught out - don't get mad, get even... and you've got all year to plan your revenge!

"You have to larf dontcha?"

Happy April Fool's day!
