April Fools Recap

Email  Print Print  

This year, my own April Fool’s offering was a little weak, but there were some really good ones out there that I enjoyed.

Number one favorite had to be Lazy Man’s Budgeting for a Tank post, accented by the fact that you can actually buy a tank through Amazon! (Also, I like how it was categorized under Smart Purchases)

JD didn’t try to dupe us, like Flexo did with his I Quit! Festival of Frugality hosting, but he did share an entertaining story about how he turned $500 into $7 in only a few years!

Oh, did you hear? Cap won the lottery.

Finally, Wise Bread had a clever, though not original, post about Apple’s new branding strategy and loyalty discount. It would’ve been funnier if people were actually being branded, rather than tattoo’d. 🙂

Anyone else see any good April Fools jokes by pfbloggers?

    There’s been no chicanery involved, but Free Money Finance has been posting fake stories today. I really enjoyed John Bogle admitting index funds don’t exist.

  2. Ahm so lame. No April Fool’s post from me. I couldn’t think of one last minute. I figure, no prank post is better than a lame prank post.

    Glad another April 1st has come and gone. Every 4/1/XX I wake up and have to turn on the B.S. gauge and rethink everything read/heard. If someone tells me a funny or outrageous story I don’t sit back and laugh or cry but insist they come clean whether it’s true or not. To me April Fools Day lost the coolness back sometime after the 4th grade and today is annoying.

    BTW, I superglue quarters on the floor by the 25 cent coke machine in the office breakroom for laughs any day of the year.

  4. Thanks for highlighting my article. I did Smart Purchases because it’s less expensive that one might think – and it’s possible to turn it into a business. Only one person brought up the fact that it isn’t exactly “street legal”, the one thing that I intentionally glossed over.

  5. Oh and the only way I know that Flexo isn’t quitting his job is this post. I know it’s April Fools, but usually those posts are something at least a little outlandish. I’d put this up there with contributing to a Roth IRA, just something that seems to make sense from the data we have (see his personal income statement).
