April Fools Day Roundup
This is my list of April Fools Day stuff that made me laugh and/or smile. I’ll be updating throughout the day.
- Google introduces Auto Awesome Photobombs with David Hasselhoff.
- HabitRPG appears to have turned my character into an eggplant.
- ThinkGeek. Always worth checking out on April 1. (I want the NERF Nuke!!!)
- Ada Hoffmann posts the programming schedule for Dinosaurcon 2014. (Apparently I was invited as Guest of Honor, but I never got the email. CURSE YOU, SPAM FILTER!!!)
- Over on Facebook, Jeff VanderMeer announced that he’d be writing a novelization of the popular game Candy Crush.
- NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day: Space Station Robot Forgets Key Again.

I think it’s doing it by class. Rogues are eggplants. Warriors are onions. Not sure about the other classes.

Here’s another one for you: Mary Robinette Kowal has been posing online as John Scalzi for the past month during her supposed break from the internet!

This gay disneyland review prank is hilarious–I wish they’d read your books so they could make reference Talia in place of Sleeping Beauty but still.

You both say that like it’s a bad thing.
Also, I cast magic missile not at the two of you but so there are D4s hidden in the carpet.
Mwa Ha Ha.

Healers are apples? As in “an apple a day keeps the doctor away — if you throw hard enough and your aim is accurate”?

Yep, more or less exactly like that!
