Now that April Fools Day is over, I think it’s time for me to explain myself for the evil post I did yesterday. During the whole year, I’m mostly serious with the news that I report on and April 1st is the one day that I get to have a bit more fun, maybe a little too much. Some readers caught on quickly to the post while some took it seriously and for that, I apologize. I like to also apologize to the LEGO Stores who received calls regarding this matter. Please do not call your LEGO Store asking about old Modular sets returning this weekend. They aren’t coming back. Period.
There was a subtle hint in the “press release” that sort of gives the joke away. The set numbers of the Cafe Corner and Green Grocer were switched around. Again, some readers saw that mistake while many others didn’t notice it at all. As a result of this mean charade, I will be retiring from the April Fool’s jokes and will not be posting anything next year. As a warning, never trust anything on April 1st or even the day before which was when I posted my “news”.
Anyways, other LEGO sites in the community also had some April Fool’s shenanigans of their own yesterday. Below are some of the ones I know of and if I missed any, leave a comment below and I’ll add it to the list.
LEGO themselves announced LEGO Glasses to help you find missing bricks or filtering bricks … Continue
It seemed that yesterday, I caused quite a stir with my post stating that I will be leaving my site at the end of the month. It seems that I couldn’t fool some of you guys. I am happy to announce that I will not be leaving The Brick Fan and will be continuing what I’ve enjoyed doing for the past two years. To those who thought I was really leaving, I’m very sorry for pulling that joke on you. There were quite a few comments left on the post as well as on Facebook from a number of fans and I was touched that many of you really enjoy coming to the site. As a result of this joke, I will be doing another giveaway in the very near future! Stay tuned for that.
