past April Fool's Day need new post

I just realized the problem with putting up an April Fool's joke post is the next day it just looks stupid. Readers might wonder if I slept in too long. Don't ask.

I'm lacking an idea to write about today. I could go on about how this 24 hour internet spread around all the world's time zones makes it impossible to reference "today".

I decide to browse over to the onion for inspiration or at least a laugh. Years ago I followed the onion almost daily. Even downloaded a podcast of funny news bulletins. As most things, the newness wears off. I found their short stock bulletins (maybe they are tweeted?) entertaining. It's called stockwatch. Here's an example: 

Jack in the Box (JACK)

$36.02 (+$1.43) (+4.13%) Investors responded positively to the unveiling of Jack’s new head, which is 10 times larger and features terrifyingly realistic ears.

That Onion clip is pretty funny. I kind of relate to the guy waiting for his Twitter account to get some followers.

I used to check into The Onion pretty regularly but fell out of the habit when I started reading so many blogs. There really should be more time in any given day to screw around.

Thanks I don't think the Onion will get back to it's peak but they still create funny stuff once in awhile. Time - it's a mystery.

Good to know you enjoyed it.

You didn't need to admit that. The amount of odd stuff that is true has one believing more and more odd things. thanks
