So the DJs have to pay for the knowledge of our public school grads?

Had they perped the standard “climate change” bull-Obama, they’d have been honored.

My favorite April Fools Day radio broadcast occurred back in the 1980’s. I tuned in to KRLA, the old rock blaster, not the present-day conservative chatterbox, and almost went into shock. They were playing songs, running ads, and even doing news broadcasts and weather reports from April 1, 1963. I remember what I was doing on April 1, 1963 and what the weather was like (it rained), and the broadcast was spot-on. I momentarily thought I had traveled through a time warp.

Some jokes you should never do an April 1st.

1. Tell your spouse you want a divorce.
2. Tell your mom you have terminal cancer.
3. Tel your kid he’s adopted
4. Tell someone with terminal cancer that the doctor called and said it’s cured.
5. Tell your kids that their grandpa just died of a heart attack

A talk radio station here in the Peoples Republic of Maryland were discussing legislation introduced to enact a tax on pets of 50 cents per pound every two years.

If was a gag, but I’m certain it will be introduced next year by the liberal morons in the General Asylum.

Back in the 70's, a rock station and a country station in my hometown switched formats for the morning, from 6:00 AM to noon. There was no explanation, no announcement. They just started broadcasting the other station's playlist.

Some listeners went ballistic.

Pretty funny. The announcers should be commended for their creativity. Apparently they have a significant number of low information listeners.

Never tell your nieces and nephews that you ran over Rudolf then take them into the garage where your brother-in-laws are gutting a deer.

What a difference 50 years makes. Orson Well’s Martian landing encited mass panic and he went on to be a hollywood legend and these guys tell there listeners that water is coming out of their tap and they get canned. Unbelievable!

Yeah, that’s my take -

the DJs are in trouble because their listeners are too stupid.

For years the team of Harden and Weaver (WMAL AM WashDC) used to push a ‘pop corn stuffing’ recipe around Thanksgiving and Christmas...

The main ingredient was cups of RAW pop corn and you figured the bird was done once its arse blew the oven door open.

They had great presentation and the skit never lost its humor and there was always someone wanting to ‘sue’ because it sounded so good people would ‘try’ it.

So ‘DUMMIES’ aren’t restricted to the present era.

Or when Soupy Sales told the kids in his audience to go get out those green pieces of paper in Mommy’s purse & Daddy’s wallet (both passed out on New Year’s morning), remit same to: The Soupy Sales Show, WNBC, New York, “and in return I will send you a postcard from Puerto Rico”.

OK that wasn’t April Fool but still kind of funny.

Lee County Utilities immediately called Gator Country to find out if they'd been fooled themselves. . . . "So we went ahead and contacted the general manager and the station to get them to stop reporting that and to let them know that the water was safe to drink.,” said DiPiero.

So the water utility board itself didn't understand that dihydrogen monoxide is water? The movie "Idiocracy" really is our future.

“As for Val and Scott, they’ve been suspended indefinitely.”

What a bunch of crap! The poor wittle officials can’t take an honest joke. The DJ’s were not lying and that is all that counts in this case. Everyone should have taken it as an educational experience and move on. What a pansy society we live in today. The people deserve to have the slave masters they are about to get.

I might be shocked, but since this state of affairs became commonplace years ago, I can only repeat that I am amused that the Idiocracy is firmly in control of the other 300,000,000 of us.
