humor is hard

Remember my little rant about April Fool’s Day? About how it’s ruined by people that don’t understand what makes a prank funny? Latest example:

Photos of an aspiring broker purportedly telling off her boss garnered widespread news coverage and more than 105,000 Facebook “likes” Tuesday. Too bad the story was published by two guys who have pranked the media before.

Oh man. You conjured up something totally plausible and got people to believe it. OH MAN. GOOD ONE. Congratulations, you’re an idiot.
