OK true or not... April Fools "jokes" are fine. The best one was George Plimton's article in Sports Illustrated about Syd Finch--a guy that could pitch a baseball faster than anyone ever, etc. etc. It was incredibly well written and really, really faked out millions of folks.
The worst one I had pulled on me was an Airport Security person almost causing me to miss a flight with a BOGUS claim that my camera bag had to be confiscated. I won't go into the details, but in retrospect, I should have skipped the flight and had the agent ARRESTED.
BUT TODAY... The Magic Apple annonced Lance Burton was flying in to Burbank, to come to the store to sign a new release DVD.
I left this morning and did some chores, had lunch, etc. then headed to the Apple Store.
OK it was April Fools joke... BUT, to me a joke is fine, but something that makes one drive half way across Los Angeles, at $2.50 a gallon for gas is NOT FUNNY.
Sorry fella, but you just lost a lot of credibility with me.
