Do you believe we'll get an April Fool's special this year? The best idea I thought of, which makes fun of such Internet pranks as Where's Waldo, would not work because of the early Easter. My idea involves a still picture of the gang Easter Egg hunting, with a prompt for the viewer to help search, and after a few seconds you can hear the characters argue offscreen over a disturbing picture to use, and then they end up using a gingivitis picture The Cheat suggested.

Oh, no, NOT ONE OF THOSE SCREAMERS. :sm: They make me so angry that heartless people would scare the crap out of us so badly. I didn't even bother for that Waldo thing because I knew it was a prank. I've been off of Where's Waldo in anything besides a book for a while now because of the threat of screamers.

Since the Rotten Eggs toon already told us there would be a Sbemail this week, the only ways we would get an April Fool's special would be if there were either 2 updates this week (not likely) or if they made an April Fool's Sbemail (not sure how it's possible).

They could do something with the entire website, like the time they flipped the screens. They could mix up the buttons, like if you click on TOONS, you'd go to CHARACTERS.

Well, they might combine it somehow. They did that once in 2002 with the email: SPRING CLEANING. In this email, Strong Bad receives multiple emails, all of which he simply deletes sadistically.

How about going all the way and not only mixing up the buttons, but mixing up ALL of the menu items and make them random so it's not the same thing twice. For example, you decide to watch the email JAPANESE CARTOON and it takes you to the big toon "Bug In Mouth Disease". Or you decide to watch "Kick the Can" and it takes you to the email I SHE BE. You get the idea here?

Uh, that might be pushing it a little. How about they narrow it down to the sections the toons are in? Like, if you go to the sbemail menu, and you click on "Mini-golf", you'd go to "some kinda robot". But if you go to the shorts section in the toons menu and you click on "20X6 vs. 1936", you'd go to "Cheat CommandosOs".

Yeah, that seems more reasonable, I guess.

OK, we were wrong. There was no April Fool's Day in HR this year. :-( But what was with the jumbling-up of the articles in the Wiki?

I hope it's not too late for me to throw in some better ideas:

Fake blu-ray promo.

Everyone's voices get sped up. This is announced in a new index page that includes an animation of Homestar sucking the helium out of a balloon.

How is that an April Fools day toon? I don't think it was even uploaded on April Fools day.

The date uploaded clearly says, "April 1, 2008", but I agree that it has no April theme.

Nor did Homestarrunner.com Pay Plus or Under Construction, and those were stated to be April Fool's specials. They were put into the holiday section.

Are you kidding? Both of those were clearly pranks on the viewer. Strong Bad Gameways doesn't seem to be a prank.

What were they then? Homestar was never really under construction, and they never actually offered pay plus.

Also, I kind of think that this was an April Fool's day thing. Maybe not a prank (maybe the traditional prank is getting a little old on the Internet?), but it definitely had to do with April Fool's day.

monkeysky was talking about downloading the games, not the videos. You know, the Wii games on H*R. Moreover, sure it's possible to download YouTube videos. There are tools such as DownloadHelper that make it pretty easy.

I don't know, but on a side note, it would be a cool trick if the Bros. Chaps made a fake Homestar Runner video game trailer.
