The "Season Finale Side" explained

The Season Finale side from yesterday is a well-played prank from 206_Bones, created by Tracie. You can read the explanation here. She did a great job, didn't she?

It was pretty funny, although I'm surprised that not everyone realised it was a joke straight away.

I think it's a bit of a joke(!) that she's annoyed at people for calling it out as April Fools though.

You wouldn't be a tad annoyed if you worked hard to execute something and people didn't play along with you?

The whole point of April Fools Day is to fool people who have no idea. When others play along, it's that much more fun :)

Sorry Tracie, but not really. I'd just think "oh well, should have fooled them better" :)

If you'd asked people to play along, that's one thing. No-one spoiled the joke ahead of time, but saying 'good joke' after the joke has been made isn't that bad in my opinion.

Besides, anything weird thing that happens on April 1st is always followed by cries of 'April Fools?!'. I don't think that can really be stopped.

Here's a link to the little April fools story from FOX about American Idol involving Brennan on a billboard. Courtsey of Fox and Los Angeles Times!!

Tracie (and future pranksters),

Here's one fangirl's take on April Fool's Day pranks: a little goes a long way. Prank me once - OK fine, I'll play along. Prank me twice, and I'll get cranky. Your prank was a good one, but it just came too late in the day, and it came after the elite membership prank. Had your prank been first, I think most of us would have played along. Sorry to say, that's just kind of the nature of pranks and people's reactions.

Where can I see the original side that was posted? I didn't look at the spoiler yesterday, b/c I try and stay as spoiler-free as possible. Since it's an April Fool's Joke, I wanted to read what was posted, but it looks like it was taken down. All I can see, are responses to the prank! What was in those sides??
