A Sincere Apology From The Staff Of Humorix

Fake News written by James Baughn on Sunday, April 2, 2000

from the boy-we-did-we-look-foolish-yesterday dept.

We here at Humorix would like to apologize for the lack of any April Fool's Day jokes published yesterday. We realize that our readers (both of you) come to expect quality April 1st mayhem, such as being acquired by Microsoft or announcing a virus that installs Linux on infected computers.

The Humorix staff actually planned several April 1st day jokes, but were unable to act on them after we all got drunk on March 31st and didn't fully sober up until this morning. Our drunkenness would explain the severe lameness of the articles we did publish yesterday. (I mean, geeks becoming militant because they didn't get their Slashdot fix for the day? Sheesh, every real geek gets his News For Nerds from Kuro5hin.org these days anyways. What a horrible stupor-induced fake news article that was.)

So, we hope you accept this sincere apology and will continue to visit Humorix in the future. If you wish, you may receive a refund on the defective electrons you received yesterday. Please send those electrons in a self-addressed stamped envelope to Humorix World Headquarters and we will give you a full refund.

Signed,

The (Now Sober) Humorix Staff
