Too many lame April Fool's jokes this year, not enough time to scope out every one.

What's even funnier than the amount of people who fell for the prank is the amount of people posting in this thread and asking "Is this the prank? [insert idea]"

Two out of five of my guesses were featured in the first post. At least I was able to squash a few bugs while looking.

The community seems to be divided on the success of the joke. Although many people thought that the joke would be that there was no joke, a large number of people looked for it anyway. The real success of the joke was that people continued to post well after April 1st in order to guess or speculate about the joke. People would have still been posting for at least a week if the joke wasn't revealed.

Hey Tom... I don't hate you at all. I thought it was funny. Come here. Give me a hug. I love you. Let me smell your hair.

I feel so betrayed. When I first read this post I was kind of thinking that you were joking and that there actually was a joke. I didn't look for it that much, but I was hoping that it actually did exist and it would be hilarious like Mockery said in the last topic. Did you actually talk to Mockery about this though? God damn it you guys. I'm so disappointed right now. But I still love you Tom. Waiting for redesign, Pico 2, and BattleBlock Theatre.

Although Pico 2 probably never existed either. LOL

I need a sig.

so maybe there wasnt an april fools joke, but what with all the bugs that users mentioned to you that you can fix(or perhaps already fixed)now, i'd call it an overall win Tom, so dont feel bad :P
also, what you said above wouldve been a good idea, but now that youve mentioned it, you cant do it because everyone will be on guard. shouldnt have said anything Tom...

The payoff is weak but the joke was more of a prank than any other AF joke.

I literally sent this as a guess to him an hour after the thread went up. Whenever someone says "I did one, but you gotta find it" my first go-to is that there isn't really one at all. I've done the same prank myself.

Then it was good that I only spent about 5 minutes looking. Still the shenanigans around here were pretty hilarious. Thanks for the fun around here Tom.

@Sankulshago - I'd agree with that. Castle Crashers all the way (In case I haven't mentioned it before)!

@Tom Fulp - I thought that there was 100% success on finding the easter egg on every 1st of April , and you got them good Tom, but unfortunately, you didn't make a fool out of ME because I wasn't even at Newgrounds on the 1st of April at that time! ROFLMAO!
