That'll be $1200, please. I'll send you the bill.


Malpractice. I was bullied relentlessly as a child.

Well, I do kind of hate the day because it can be exhausting, but I tend to love the aftermaths.

No kidding. Pranking on April Fool's warrants Never Again taking DPC seriously, considering all communications from DPC SC as spoofs....?

Over-react much?

I didn't mind the joke... I was expecting one, actually. But, mine didn't come until after I was asleep 11:15pm (yeah, I'm a woos), so I didn't see it until the next day. Still didn't mind it. Just folks having a bit of fun.

I would have preferred a Speed Challenge.

We haven't had one in a long while... *sigh*

Affirmative poll: 208 Non-affirmative: 268

I don't mind the prank which completed on April 1. I do think the SC should monitor the aberrant behavior in the voting arena. But, really, I don't care! It's pretty hard to take a "Jackass, the Movie" philosophy seriously. I think I have it narrowed down. If you thought the movie, "Jackass, the Movie" was funny (original, or any sequels), then you really liked the SC and Admin's April 2 "joke". Am I right? It's a generation and culture thing, I think! If you trip an old, crippled lady on the street, and she falls, do you laugh your ass$ off, or do you have compassion for her plight. (Again, all my comments today are belated April Fool's jokes. ROFLMAO!!!!!!!)

mine arrived on April 2nd so the joke was kind of lost. I ended up just thinking SC had screwed up... which isn't too far from the truth I guess.

Aww, don't stress Karma. Drama is the new DPC, no worries, just go with it, crack some heads, have a beer or fruity drink of choice, have some laughs, shed some tears, complain a little or a lot...

The biggest problem with the new DPC is too much seriousness. It used to be when people were being seriously, they were still not being serious, now when people are being serious they are being REALLY SERIOUS. I complained about this back in December.

But yeah, don't stress out so. :)

Ok, I've given you my pep talk, if I start getting too serious I expect you to do the same for me! :)
04/02/2009 07:58:22 PM · #207
Ah, but how SERIOUSLY did you complain?
04/02/2009 08:03:59 PM · #208
Serious enough for some but not serious enough for others. Overall I think I was old DPC serious and not new DPC serious but then if I were new DPC serious then the thread would have taken too much of a serious turn and ended up all serious and stuff.

I'm sure glad you don't have as much pull with the authorities here, as you do at that other website you're going to that is all serious. I'd hate to lose another place to hang out and have a little fun.

Ha. Ya'll are lucky.

My son considers the entire month of April fair game.

:P

LOL - before this thread gets locked because of lack of gravity, consider this.
Every year since DPC began, something outrageous has taken place on April Fools Day.

As usual, there was chatter about what it would be THIS year before the big day and during the big day.

Lulled into (false) security, by NOTHING happening people dropped their collective guard.

Then, at the eleventh hour (well, Eastern Daylight Savings Time anyhow) the other shoe dropped.

The joke broke.

Now, outrage, cries of horror, beatings of horses have occurred.

Truly, we have been April Fooled. I can hardly wait 'till next year.

:-))

Agreed. Nothing like a bit of non destructive fun! Bigger and better next time please!

"butthead" is such a Jackass: The Movie type of word...so knock off the personal attacks, please.

Okay, will do! Just offering a scientific phylum, a taxonomic rank, assessment. Yes, you are right.... it is a "Jackass, The Movie" term. Just trying to fit in.

rationalizations aside, it's still a personal attack and it won't be tolerated.

OK, one last rant. Just because I didn't enjoy the joke doesn't mean I don't have a life. I work on a mental health unit in a hospital and focusing on a fun hobby is what helps keep me going. Suggesting that people who didn't enjoy the joke should visit children's hosp. is insensitive. Come and visit my mental health unit and witness the tragedy of this illness. We need to be kind to each other and encourage each other. Calling people who were upset poor losers is still mean, no matter what you say.

Don't go yet! I hear we now get our own Scientific Phylum, Taxonomic Rank if you will, Assessments. On a Photography site! Who knew it was one-stop shopping?

Thanks for your sensitive perspective on this issue. It is much appreciated.

Uh, actually, according to general concensus here, that's exactly what it means, so you need to get over yourself.

That's what you're going to get served up next here.

You're not allowed to be offended by stupid, inane, tasteless humor, don'tcha know?

I am NOT tasteless....
