I don't think I'll come up with any real japes today, but that dream was like a weird-ass jape from my subconscious to the rest of me? It is not good at joke
weird, dumb dream
My dream included:
✅ being mean to my dad
✅ my getting a parakeet like my son's
✅ going to a Showbiz Pizza where the owner reskinned the band to look like an R&B group and they sang Boyz II Men
✅ acquiring three dodos
✅ acquiring three goats
✅ one of the goats sang a half-bar of David Bowie's "Starman" so I'd recognize it
✅ petting said goat a bunch
. . . 🤷🏼♂️
Instance policy on April fools' day
Reminder that scholar.social will not be participating in April fools' day, and a preemptive warning to be judicious in your choice of "jokes"
🍍 Content warnings MUST be accurate and descriptive
🍍 "It was April fools' day" is not an excuse for violations of our Community Standards
🍍 If you do something sexist/racist/anti-queer, even if you do it "as a gag" or "ironically," you are still doing that *in real life,* and will be treated as such
With pranks especially: the joke should be on YOU, on the thought and time and effort you put into it. You can do something unexpected and make someone laugh, but you have a responsibility to clean up the physical mess and to make damned sure there's no emotional mess.
NOW: see if you can tell a joke.
Oh, never mind, new Deathworlders chapter. I'm good.
I would scream and start following cross-country
Yeah, they release the first half of the bracket for the TNT tournament on AEW Dark tonight, and the second half on Dynamite tomorrow
Anyone have "learn to juggle" on their to-do list for this next month or so? I've been honestly wondering whether having a video call over a platform like jitsi would be any more helpful than just watching any of the many video tutorials out there, and would love to have a few test cases to find out! So I'm offering one on one instruction to the lovely people out here on the fediverse. Just let me know and we'll set up a time!
As a dad, raising my child well is one of my primary purposes
Coming up with "jokes" like these is a strong secondary imperative
