Happy March 32nd

I just saw a post on Twitter where someone was dreading tomorrow, Saturday, April 1st….or, as it’s otherwise known, April Fool’s Day.

I’m a yuckster, so I’ve always enjoyed the day. From the harmless childhood pranks, to the more elaborate twists as you get older.  Nothing harmful. Being a morning person puts you in great shape to be the first one to catch people off guard and break it to them first.

I’ve blogged on this great holiday in 2010, 2014 and again just last year.

Might as well keep the streak going.

This year, 2017, won’t be as fun because it’s not a work day. I quit going to an office on a daily basis three years ago, but for the rest of the 9-to-5 world it will mean pranksters deprived for two years in a row as April Fool’s Day falls on the weekend.

I have gone a new direction anyway. Last year, I began a tradition of creating a video piece on National Gullible Day. The origins of this invented holiday will change every year, as will the cast and stars of this brief video therapy session.

This year, special thanks to all those who took part: Mike West, Scott Burns, Mike Rue, Margo Rogers, Kristi Gilbert, Brian MacMillan, Alana Baxter, Rune Kjenstad, Caroline Sleipnes Kjenstad, Mark Merchant, Chris Settle and my very special guest, Pat Cashman.

Of course, you can watch both this year’s video and the 2016 edition at NationalGullibleDay.org

And just so you know, that’s also the world’s first Scratch ‘n Sniff website.

You can’t blame a guy for trying.

Happy NGD to all!
