Yesterday’s April Fools’s Joke

April 1, 2015

Lloyd, Nerd, School

I should have posted this yesterday, so you could enjoy it, but I actually forgot about it until about 6:00 yesterday morning.  Jonathon Swärdén wrote the JavaScript that replaces all of the images on a webpage with pictures of Nicholas Cage, Bill Murray, Vanilla Ice, Steven Sigal and kittens.


Our Executive Director texted me this morning:


We were talking about various Practical Jokes on the Nebraska Technology Coordinator’s email list yesterday and I posted the link to our website along with what our Executive Director said and got this reply back:

“Lloyd, what was on the webpage. We did not see it!!”

I went with:

“Hint: Nicholas Cage, Bill Murray, Steven Seagal, and Ice Tea haven’t gone to Lincoln Lutheran for years.”

    I feel in a weird way that Scott deserves it (at Seward together).

    At my school, the toddler teacher replaced the toilet paper in the staff bathroom with a roll of duct tape and a sign that said, “Good luck!” It was hilarious!

    Sadly, there were no jokes at my work. But I’m going to tuck away that toilet paper one for next year.

    The only April Fool’s Day jokes I heard were from the kindergarteners in Computer Class:

    I know everything about computers! April fools!
    My (colored with crayons) paper doesn’t have any color on it! April fools!
    I like apples! April fools!
    I’m sitting in a chair! April fools!

      Because of those types of April Fools jokes, I let my 3rd graders know that they could do all the jokes they wanted to when they got home.
