April Fools jokes about people being injured aren't too funny. Just for that I hope you get a very hard birthday spanking!

Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett

You could at least have made it a little more entertaining and unpredictable by not revealing it as an April Fool's joke in the same post... but then if you'd done that I might have got my hopes up unnecessarily only to see them cruelly dashed moments later, so a wise decision not to delay.

Ah, April Fool's Day. Such a good thing that it's an opportunity for sensible humour, not for mean-spirited adolescent practical jokes.

By Whom? Everyone within reaching distance of you! And I'm impressed with your proper gramar and usage of whom, VSF!
