April Fools?

He does still have his blogads up... I would think that if he's really quitting that they'd be taken down.

Better be. That's not funny.

It was posted one minute after midnight, which also looks more like an April Fool's Day joke timed for 23 hours and 59 minutes than a genuine goodbye, which would surely be posted at whatever random time he was fed up enough to post it.

Maybe he could ask Puce to take it over. CLICK!

It could be an elaborate, recursive April Fool's joke. Quit on April Fool's day, let everyone believe it's an April Fool's joke, then the joke is that it wasn't a joke. My brain hurts.

Besides, I got fired on April Fool's day last year, so I'm getting used to getting terrible, non-joke news on 4/1.

Reason #4716 why I hate April Fool's Day. Don't mess me with like this, Treacher!

The opposite happened to me yesterday. I got told news that funding for my job has been renewed.

He's converted the font to strike-thru and made it a link to a laugh.

Darn you, Treacher! Darn you to heck!!!
