Poll: Happy April Fool's Day! Did you know that April Fool's Day was started by a group of whoopee cushion lobbyists in the 1930s?
  • 14.6% - Yes, I did! 63
  • 85.4% - No, I did not! 368

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I get it... is this one of those Leap Years? You know, the one where we repeat April 1 until we learn from our mistakes?

I think you have that confused with Ground Possum Day.

That's not what the guy told me yesterday when he said April Fools Day had been postponed by one day.

Federal Law clearly states:
"When a holiday falls on a Saturday, the preceding Friday is treated as the holiday. When a holiday falls on a Sunday, the subsequent Monday is treated as the holiday."

As it is written, so shall it be.

That explains why there is so little money in my bank account. I'll let the bank know that I realize they're just following Federal April Fools Day.

Which would be applicable to federal holidays. April Fools' is hardly that. Take your pick:

No, that can't be right. I'm going with what Woot said.

Jeremy is, after all, the subject matter expert. Woot hired him specifically for holiday schedules.
