Welcome to Dude Write!We are thrilled to have you here, whether you are a Writer Dude, a Blogger Dude, a Reader Dude or a Fanatic of good writing. If you've stumbled upon us via a link and wondering what you've gotten yourself into, our Mission Statement should explain it all.
It just doesn't have the same juice as its predecessor. Heck, it isn't even Groundhog Day which happens 2 months earlier.
This year Groundhog Day and April Fool's Day seem about the same judging from some of the squirrely weather to which we're adjusting.
I got to thinking how we ever managed April Fool's Day without Facebook and Twitter? I mean, Bono died, several notable NFL trades happened, I had several friends win a small part of Powerball! All without leaving the comfort of my couch or having to clean up pee around a urinal, or clean shaving cream out of my sock drawer.
So, in the spirit of pranks everywhere, Dude Write is open for business. Take that as you will.
Looking for an idea to blog? How about the best April Fools' Day prank that was played ON you or BY you? If not, we'll take your submissions and laugh at them anyway.
With that, on with the show...
