The April Fools Day Buzzkill

Thoughts

Peter Cook

From a reputable news source:

In an unprecedented sociological shift, the number of people voicing disdain for April Fools Day jokes now outnumber those making the jokes.

Sir Arthur Streeb-Greebling of the Peter Cook Institute chalked the shift up to smugness.

“[..] denouncing a day of fun while feigning intellectual superiority provides high returns with minimal effort. One is left surprised they don’t see the irony that their complaining is now more deafening than that which they’re complaining about.”

The uniform makes him (and therefore this post) look more legit.
