    Ha made you look!

    April fools!




    :lol:
    When they had advanced together to meet on common
    ground, then there was the clash of shields, of spears
    and the fury of men cased in bronze; bossed shields met
    each other and the din rose loud. Then there were
    mingled the groaning and the crowing of men killed and
    killing, and the ground ran with blood.

          No congrats to you - the ultimate fooler (IMO).

              Yeah, hey, you posted this AF joke 43 minutes too early. If it wasn't for L'Etranger's mastery, I would consider myself "unfoooled" today based on technicality... :P

                  And here I was thinking you had become dis-enchanted. Well you caught me out with that one too Von. I should have known better. :roll:

                  Glad to see it was all in jest. :P

                      You know, I actually considered time differences when I posted. There are so many people here from all over the world that I wondered if some would get it too early.

                      I could have held off until this morning when I got up (6:30am central) but I was too eager to play the fool! :lol:

                        That's quite right. We are between 5 and 8 hours ahead of you guys in the US, only the Aussie members are up "earlier". So I had the advantage to pull off my ruse while most of you were asleep when I had breakfast this morning - here, in Old Europe.
                        It would definitely be April 1st when you all woke up I thought. I wasn't aware, b-t-w, that you have to catch the others before noon, which isn't customary in the countries here to the best of my knowledge.
                        Anyway, it was fun, glad most you you liked it, and it is great to be in touch with so many people with lots of good humour.
                        Best regards, L'Etranger

                          Well, you caught me before noon. Not liking what I saw, I immediately called Universal and cancelled the contract, told the producers I was so pissed off I wouldn't ever talk to them again and phoned a friend in
                          Ouazazate to tell him to blow up Club Med.
                          You mean it was a joke ?

                            If had only waited until 12:01...

                            Well, didn't you see? Production has already begun on the film.
