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!

Not bad, but I think I'd have given them a Passover. 

I am indifferent, though I have an academic sense that it's beneficial.   What I really want is to have shakers FOR my paint bottles. As in, some sort of goblins in a cage that will continua

it would not be a normal paint.   Glitter Medium!   Turning any colour into a glitter variant.

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.

Question for, April 3: Did you see any bizarrely colorized Easter Bunnies or other strange Easter holiday decor this year?

 

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.

 

 

Target was closed. That one surprised me.

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....

      The rules: as they were last month (in addition to all regular forum rules) except where I sneakily changed them:
       
      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 sometime before 1 AM Reaper time (US Central).
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to Talespinner or Morihalda… 
      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 may take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
      8. Pix always welcome.
       
       
      The first question will need to be posted after a brief (10 minute) pause to foil the merging of posts.
      The footnotes, because I can't resist doing †††footnotes:
       
      † I will aim for 0600 Reaper/Nottingham time.
      ††  If subs and backstops could wait until 11AM in Reaper/Denton's timezone to see if I remember.
      ††† …because I re-remembered how to do the dagger ( † ) symbol.
