[color=#000000ost_uid0]StarTrek.com has some great April Fools stuff up there. Everyone should read the articles they have up there.

And, Zeke, I think they ripped you off with this one: Vulcan-American Group Angered by Portrayal on Enterprise[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]lol! 7-'this just in' articles in one day!

Not to mention the interview with the tribble(s)!
[quoteost_uid0]Did you ever feel like the 60's time of free love has come back to haunt you later?

How can you tell which tribble is your wife, or wives?[/quoteost_uid0]

I think it's got the whole backwards title page/ multiple exclamation marks gag beaten hands-down (Sorry Zuke).[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Hey, I don't have a patent on noticing the moodiness of [iost_uid0]Enterprise[/iost_uid0]'s Vulcans. If they ripped me off with anything, it's with the "Star Trek Awards" (sound familiar?)[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]FOOL! I had nothing to do with it! Do you really think I would participate in such an insipid, pointless occasion as April Fool's Day?[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]^That's exactly what I was thinking, Zeke. (No, Mr. Eggplant, I was not talking about your post. )[/colorost_uid0]

You heard me. You're never gonna live it down. Not even when you're old and squishy, or whatever it is eggplants do when they get old...

[innocently]BTW, was that one new "Phloxxx" character an April Fool's joke, or an honest goof?[/innocently]

Eggplant/zucchini pun? :S

[color=#000000ost_uid0]:::Shrug:::

I thought it was some kinda intentional vegetable joke, making Zuke = Zucchini, and relating it to some other kind of vegetable.

Then again, I could be wrong.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Sorry, two. *I'm* slipping. :blush:

And that's an interesting way of seeing the whole eggplant joke. I wouldn't have thought of that. [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Everytime I try to run, I trip over those X-tra
ex!cla!ma!tion points that're lying all over the
place. I'm tired of hurting my shins and knee-
caps, so I'm just going to hide inna corner w/
the lights out & hope that [bost_uid0]Zuke[/bost_uid0] doesn't have
any infra-red goggles. [bost_uid0]*crosses fingers*[/bost_uid0]
