so — it’s too late for this year, but if you’re thinking about a prank for april fools, try to:

  1. have it start subtle, just inside the realm of possibility
  2. make it progress beyond that realm, adding increasingly absurd elements
  3. by the end it should have fully landed as impossible to anyone who sees it

that’s a good april fools gag. these are not:

  1. an actor believably died
  2. they’re finally making that thing you wanted

“what makes you an expert, kris” you may be asking

i am an expert.
