Ridiculous! This group has no standing to sue anybody for cracking an April
Fool joke. Besides which, they could never come close to summoning enough
legal expertise to sue everybody who cracks such a joke.

A bas any blue-nosed prigs who object to April Fool jokes on the grounds of
"pagan origins". These are the same kinds of killjoys who forbid their
children the fun of celebrating Hallowe'en because of its "pagan origins".
Most of them, I notice, do not hesitate to put up Christmas trees or color
Easter eggs, although the origins of those customs is every bit as "pagan".
They also give flowers and candy and cards to their sweethearts on St.
Valentine's Day, even though that custom goes back to the Roman holiday of
Lupercalia (yes, "pagan"). And those who are American see nothing wrong in
celebrating Thanksgiving Day, which derives from a Native American (hence
originally "pagan") harvest festival.

It is with the greatest of pleasure that I declare my intention to ignore
these silly people and to urge others to do the same. In fact, I think I'll
send them a copy of this email.

so, the joke is on me, and I'm the one who's being blue-nosed!!! Somebody
tell me if this is the case so I can laugh at myself - nothing would please
me more!
