I'm soooo confused???


USA has a unofficial, but still popular 'holiday' of April Fool's day, where practical jokes are played on the innocent. April 1 is the date.

Aww, I don't have the nerve to keep this up when people are writing sincere good intended replies here.

Good one -- although I have to admit, the Osho stuff sort of gave it away for me. I know you would never fall for that. :smile:

As 1st April has now passed and to prevent any misunderstanding regarding the content of the OP this topic is locked.

Thanks Anders for a really good laugh :lol:
