April Fool's!

April Fool's Day is usually lots of fun around here. Last year we all came in to discover our desks, and everything on them, had been covered in aluminum foil. I wish I had taken pictures, but alas, you'll just have to imagine the funniness of it.

So this year, I'm walking in to the office with Lane and I say to him, "Do you think everything is covered in foil?" and he has a quizzical look on his face. I remind him it's April Fool's and he sighs heavily, "Oh boy, I wonder what happened this year." So we walk in the door and see a ladder leaning against the elevator. "I wonder what they needed a ladder for?" Lane says. "That," I say:

Someone had moved Mike's entire desk to the small ledge above the front door. They moved his monitor, computer, his trinkets and pictures--they even bothered to connect his computer to the internet!

It was pretty awesome. Thinking this was the only April Fool's joke, I walk into my office only to discover I, too, had been pranked:

Everything I have hung around my desk--pictures, posters, comics, articles, calendar--had been pinned upside down. I practically got vertigo looking around at everything on my walls! I had a good laugh about that one. I have to give props to the April Fool's Fairy; I think he (or she) did a pretty good job this year. I don't care what other people say; I like April Fool's Day :)

That's pretty awesome! How they hell did they get everything up the ledge!?

When we came in, there was a step-ladder leaning against the wall in the lobby. It's funnier to see it without the ladder, though... :)

It appears that someone is picking on my little boy. Don't make me come down there and twist ears! I know that it is always the most talented and gifted that get picked on, but I will not stand for this kind of disrespect--After all, I've been told from at least one source that MY SON practically runs your business single-handedly. You have been warned....(Great gag--I loved it!)

You're right, of course. I have a theory that this is why Mike's desk is still up there! This way, when a potential client walks in, they see that we properly put Mike above everyone else in the company. His desk is the first thing inside the door, and as a result they've been taking out their checkbooks almost immediately!

"Wow, you have Mike himself stationed right over the front doorway? How about if I just write this check out for $14 million?"
