There’s no fool like an April Fool and this we saw last April 1 as the traffic to our April Fools website went up 20 times the usual amount. There was so much traffic this year that the site was shut down for a while on March 31 due to ‘exceeded bandwidth’.
The site was up for most of April 1 though and had 3 times as much traffic as last year. It looks like people are finally getting their senses of humor back. Since September 11, 2001, the traffic to the site and the number of April Fools on the Internet had been dismal. Until this year.
I need to point out that we’ve rolled out a new line of t-shirts on the April Fools R Us website featuring a wide range of humor. One of my favorites is the Pirates Doing Pilates design featured here. But there are many others worth checking out, so even though it’s not April Fool’s Day anymore, there’s still a lot of humor to check out on that site, so get going!
