Remembering the glory days of last year’s April 1.
Frankly, I’m disappointed. Most of the key poker sites that might be expected to have a quality April Fools’ joke just haven’t bothered. Last year Bodog had hardcore pictures of Founder Calvin Ayre having sex on their blog, this year nada. Poker News doesn’t seem to have anything and neither does PokerLisitings, although that’s probably because they were so demoralized after we beat them to the punch on the same joke about Mats Sundin being Isildur1. Sure they did it way better, funnier and properly by actually posting it on April 1, but we cheated and posted it early and scooped them. To this day, on every April, if you listen carefully you can hear the cries of PokerListing writers asking, “How? How did they know what we were working on?”
The answer is we didn’t. We just got lucky.
Even Wicked Chops Poker, who you would imagine might spend half the year cooking up the ultimate April Fool’s joke didn’t give it a go other than to post the latest episode of The Micros which, by the way, is now officially one of the greatest videos on the Internet.
We did find this at Cardschat. It plays the game well in that it’s ridiculous while still almost believable.
So what else is out there that we’re missing?
