This forum is too serious for jokes
No, but really.. If someone was to put out a false bit of info here, to fool people for april 1, then what
if everyone jumped right on it? We would all be ridiculed for believing in it.
My sister is always going around saying "I haven't fooled anyone this year, I HAVE to think of a way to fool mother" as if it's a good thing.
Making people feel like idiots is wrong, and especially if it is so that one can laugh at them. This is a custom that is better off dead and buried.
It's some old germanic fertility rite, and come on, nobody here believes in that stuff anymore. Our grandparents turn around in their graves, and
otherwise if they're not dead yet, because according to christianity, aprils fooling and halloween and a lot of other "holidays" are not to be
recognized. The commersial industry is pushing all of these things on us. And i'll say it right now, it's not a good thing. The commersial industry
just introduced halloween here for the first time 3 years ago, and nobody knew what it was. but the kids knew. sure, they were ALL walking around
demanding candy, and for all us who didn't know what day it was, it was "YOU STINGY BASTARD!" all night long! The greed is incredible.
Did you also know that sunday is officially the FIRST day of the week? why do we have the first day off then? and not the two last, i.e.? I can work
on sundays, but on saturday I don't do anything. Might give me a heads-up in the workplace, because I can do sundays also. and it's the best-paying
day hehehe ;-) religious evolution strikes again.. :-)
my point is, we don't need all these holidays, or we will end up like the catholics. with a government which controlls which days we can work, do
different types of work, have sex, eat different foods, and pay homeage to different saints. I know saint valentine is happy about you americans.
it's so stupid. you're lutheran protestants, and the pope still makes everyone in the christian world bow to him.
