Question, April 2: Would either of these have been good prank Questions for yesterday: “Do you agree with the Pope’s Decision to cancel Easter?” “Was the Easter Bunny justified in Excommunicating the Pope for banning April Fools Day?”

 

I like the second. It is more obviously satirical (to avoid the grumps of not-fun people). COMBO BREAKER!

Meh.  I probably wouldn't have bothered responding to either.

I don't believe either of these are good prank questions.  The first might have tripped people up if they're not familiar with the holiday, but the question runs the risk of being offensive or reinforcing negative sentiment.  The second is just silly.

 

I believe a prank question should really be mostly believable by the person hearing it, which tends to rule out most April Fools-related questions or antics.

I can't top @Crowley's answer so I'll just leave it at that.

Since we stayed in a lot aside from dinner in an Asian restaurant, no, not really.

We have a bunny visitor from a next door neighbor (there is a hole in the fence, that she comes through). So we get "Easter" decos all the time ::D:. Thou the bunny sometimes does strange things. She is a weird one...

Nope, although I didn't really go out much. 

 

Was kinda funny seeing the Easter bunny be escorted to the bathroom at Ikea though.

Nope.  TBH I was barely cognizant that Easter was this past weekend.  Went out for dinner to a newish restaraunt downtown on Friday night and they didn't have anything "Easterish" up.  Went to Taco Bell for dinner on Saturday night becuase I didn't feel like cooking, and well...it was a Taco Bell.  Sunday I went to Lowe's for gardening stuff, and I don't normally pay much attention to the decor there, so if they did I didn't notice it.  That was the extent of my ventures outside my home for the whole weekend.

A guy working at Trader Joe's was wearing bunny ears and a bowtie in the vegetable section.

 I'd completely forgotten it was Easter until I tried to go do some shopping late Sunday afternoon and the entire world was closed.

As I spent minimal time away from the house yesterday, I did not. Will be grocery shopping later, so I suppose it's still possible....

      It's time again for a year-end roundup of the figures I managed to finish last year. These are the figures I finished during the calendar year of 2018, which was, let me tell you, another ... interesting year.
       
      January-March

      I was absent from here for much of 2018 (starting mid-August 2017), but that doesn't mean I wasn't painting. I hope to post a bunch of pics over the next week detailing all the minis I painted before August 2018. March featured a ton of stuff for convention GMing and I also painted a bunch for Tomb of Annihilation. And just whatever I felt like.
      I'm going through stuff elsewhere to see what's been done and soon I'll be posting the list of minis (and also linking to other show-off threads).

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, December 2018 Edition.
       
      The rules as they currently stand:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 8:00 hours and 13:00 hours GMT (UK / Europe Time: some Zero Dark Thirty hour for US time zones)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... (Or Talespinner, he started it.)
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday. 
       
      December will begin ^ with such a question because the month begins on a Saturday.
