Happy April Fools Day. There is a lot that you shouldn’t believe on the internet most days, today it just gets ramped up even more. Traversing what is real and what is fake on a day like today is like being in a real life hunger games. So in the words of those in the districts on this crazy day, “May the odds be forever in your favor.” Hopefully you don’t get overly duped by someone who really takes today seriously. And remember, any jokes should be in good taste and remember, for most it is all in good fun.
