But, Tom! D:
I thought you loved me! :'C

Hey, I should win... I specifically wrote you a PM that stated "My guess is that the joke is that there is no joke AND you're going to make everyone wait until Monday to tell them. Right? RIGHT?! D:"

I'd say it's pretty clear who the winnar is. B]

TOM (Thats your name right?).....

Well I'm sorry to hear that you're wasting so much talent..like you THINK you have. Certainly I can give you credit for having a brain and actually having some thought (and let me emphasize they are just thoughts!!)....BUT unfortunetly...you're a waste. No offence other then what you choose to spend your time on...like making a page about Fake Contests is quite rude to us level-headed people. Now I do realize as I make a statement like that... its kind of pointless because to refer to you as NOT being level headed..IS A GIVEN!!!

I do also realize that you state how you feel and you design a page like this one just for attention and feedback. YOU couldn't use your gifts (and I'm referring to your typing ability and ability to make a sentence....ONLY!!!! ...UNDERSTAND....I haven't been able to find verification that you have any intelligence what so ever...ESPECIALLY Positive intelligence!!!) I would like to take this opportunity to tell you what it is like to HAVE wisdom....you see....YOU DON'T HAVE WISDOM .....KID!!! (YOU'RE only 25....I can't believe you think like this!!!). Incase you DON'T know what WISE means (Its APPARENT YOU DON'T!!!)....I think I'll tell you.... WISE: Is ONE POSSESSING GREAT KNOWLEDGE and intelligence (you're lacking both!!!) also....Having the ability to make a RIGHT decision or judgment (of a decision, judgment, or ACTION) resulting from the use of this ability. YOU don't HAVE any of this ability!!! WHAT YOU ARE IS A WISEACRE (a man who FOOLISHLY PRETENDS to have great knowledge).

My suggestion to you is to spend less time PLAYING on the computer and making silly pages like this and use what (little) you know.....to actually benefit YOU and MAYBE someone or SOMETHING else!!! You're wasting so much time trying to get people upset, bothered, or maybe even agreeing with you that so much of your time is countless!! That is of NO concern to you though...right??? IF so....your ignorant to think you're going to actually BE SOMETHING!! (keep in mind that you certainly can be whatever you want...but remember....you can be as BAD as you like...but YOU WON'T win the race!!!!)

You claim to plan to be smart, intelligent, AND wise.....and you're supposed to be raising a family, and become.....WHAT...(I have to ask)???? HOW come you are here WASTING important time??? If you TRUELY want to be smart...CHANGE your way of thinking. SMART...IS being positive...and productive...in whatever you choose. As you appear to be.....your NOT smart...and thats really OK ...though......JUST stay the hell away from.....US POOR GULLIBLE NEWGROUNDERS!!! Other then that....do whatever you like!!!

I'm sorry I can't go on.....I truely regret because my thoughts of you are unfortunetly ENDLESS... you're like a BAD DREAM!!! I can go on a long time trying to HELP you understand..BUT I KNOW its useless!! SO GOODBYE!!
GOD HELP YOUR PARENTS!!!
AND GOOD LUCK!!!

And with this post, Tom Fulp caused a mass suicide of teenagers across the globe.

BUT WHO CARES! He's kept his $250.

The amount fluctuates so much that it didn't really stand out - maybe an extra 100,000 pageviews. The ads are largely results-driven so they weren't noticeably impacted.

To top of all off, all these bug reports were for a codebase that is getting replaced soon. :P

The joke is that Tom and Wade aren't related at all. It's just been one elaborate joke that they were planning to unveil on April Fools, but then they decided they should keep the fact that they're lovers secret.

Also he's trying to control our minds with the water supply

I ran. I ran until my muscles burned, and my veins pumped battery acid. Then I ran some more.

Lmfao, the perfect April fool's joke. Anyone who spent time looking for it really would feel like a fool now.

I kind of feel cheated since my answer to the april fool's was that this was largely a trick to get us to report bugs.

From any thread listing, put your mouse over an angryfaic emoticon and wait - you'll heard the audio, but the animation isn't showing up like it used to.

Please don't hate me.

I was ready to write a nice "fuck you" post till i read this. I won't hate you since you admit it was a goose chase. After about 5 minutes of reading about the search, i was reminded of i-mockery's tetris game a few years ago.

this game really got me before and is a similar but better april fool's joke i think. better in that it had more substance and actually tricked me. Even then, i was only 99% sure that you were full of shit about the $250, and that 1% kept nagging me...

i imagine the reason you didn't come up with another chinagrounds is because you are making your slaves work on the new features. I think everyone will quickly forget this april fool's when the new stuff hits.

i rely on this site for daily entertainment, Tom. DON'T FUCK IT UP.

Actually the animation is showing up for me when I move the cursor of the icon after the audio starts. If I keep it on the icon it does not show up.

Wow, i've found the motivational movie that stamper made about renovating (which still haunts my dreams) but i never knew about the angryfaic easter egg. It works perfectly fine for me. i'm using chrome on the latest version of ubuntu with the adobe flash plugin for linux.
