In A Word ... No
Every year on the first of April, people all around the country pause for a few minutes to see if they can tickle the funny bone of the folks they like. And believe me, there's nobody ANN likes better than you, our readers.
So today, actually over the past few weeks, we've been concocting some outlandish stories that we hope have given you a good laugh. It's frankly some of the most fun we have all year, and there's the added bonus of not having to deal with those pesky facts or research.
Well, at least not as much research.
So, here's hoping you've had as much fun reading today's offerings as we've had putting them together. Tomorrow, it's back to the coverage you expect from ANN, which is a rewarding endeavor in its own right. Happy April Fools Day, everybody.
