Boy, anagrams are fun and Pieter and I are only pulling your leg!
For the crossword aficionados out there, the title of my previous post “Aid Royal Flops!” is an anagram for “April Fools Day!”
To those concerned souls who would be adversely affected by any demerit rule or system rest assured, we are doing nothing of the sort.
In today’s fast-paced world, we sometimes forget to stop and chuckle. So on the count of three, smile!
On the subject of April Fools Day, here are two classics posted a few years ago.
Google’s broadband initiative may be the real deal, but back in 2007, the G-team joked that it was launching a broadband service that would run through the sewers.
TiSP — short for Toilet Internet Service Provider — was described as a “self-installed, ad-supported online service that will be offered entirely free to any consumer with a Wi-Fi-capable PC and a toilet connected to a local municipal sewage system.” To use the service, all you had to do was flush a fiber-optic cable down the john and Google would fish-out and connect the other end to a specially provided router.
Kodak offered Relationshiffft, which would allow you to click on the faces of people you no longer wanted in any of your images – like the dorky boyfriend who is now history. Using facial detection, Relationshifft would remove said individual from every photo on your computer and social networking websites.
I guess I can put April Fools’ 2013 back in it’s box now.
p.s. Apologies to the committee for any angst and anxiety I caused them as they fielded frantic calls, SMS’ and emails from the club about demerits.
Hope you are all working hard on those Juxtaposition images for Set Subject and Interclub challenge.
To clear up any identification issues in my original post. The “society” I referred to is any society that you wish it to be; “The Dead Poet’s Society”, “The Flat Earth Society”, etc. and “Mo” is “Morris”, our yet-to-be-found-and-appointed demerit system steward.
