>>Ridiculous! This group has no standing to sue anybody for cracking an

>>A bas any blue-nosed prigs who object to April Fool jokes on the grounds

>>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
